Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Simmo, In general, the “closer” your area of area of interest is to your current role, the easier it is to make the switch. Translation - sales/marketing within the services industry would be easier for you to break into than consulting. That said, I think you should give deep thought to what you re...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Rahulgautam1187, If IT Consulting is what interests you most, with 5 years of experience, all you have to do is apply to firms that offer such roles. IT Consulting firms are always on the lookout for people that can bring in domain expertise. If I were you, I would apply to the biggies - Accenture, ...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Simmo, For someone with 11 years of experience that’s thinking of executing a career change, an Exec MBA is a good option. Additionally, I think what’s also very important is to give deep thought to what career path you would like to pursue after your MBA, which would in turn help you in coming up w...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Rahulgautam1187, To answer your first question - no, that’s not true. Consulting companies hire resources from a wide range of fields and domains - they employ doctors, IT-professionals and experienced consultants. In today’s world, consulting companies cannot offer guidance and advice to their clie...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Binit, Thanks for the wishes; a very happy Diwali to you too. I can’t help but say this - with all the smileys, yours is probably one of the most “expressive” posts I have seen on these forums! Given that you’ve spent 6 years as a trader, and assuming that you’ve worked out the preliminaries - why m...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Anamika7, I am not knowledgeable enough to give you sound advice on the specific program from XLRI that you are interested in. I will leave it to Sameer and team to offer you direction and advice. A question that comes up though is - Why would you even think about pursuing a program if you are not s...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Neonet, Thanks for the detailed post. It is unfortunate that you have had to face all that you have detailed because of your choices in life - education, etc. Since you have been through pretty much everything - BTech, MA, MPhil, etc. - if I were you, I would not think about the next one (MBA, etc.)...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Sham88, If you do get yourself certified in SAP SD, and if that’s what you are really interested in, surely your chances of landing a good job would increase. In general for any certification, not just for SAP SD, the company/education partner that’s offering you the certification is what’s most imp...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Prateek Saroha, Your plan is a good one. Some MBAs in the US offer electives in media and entertainment, while others allow you to major in it. Look at Stern, Columbia, etc. - their MBA programs offer these electives. Another way to gain good exposure to media and entertainment would be by enrolling...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Menfron, It’s not that admissions committees at top bschools don’t prefer IT/developer profiles. It so happens that that bucket is huge in terms of sheer numbers, and therefore there is more “competition.” To put it another way, admissions committees can afford to be very picky when choosing candida...
