Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Gauravparmarr, Given the limitations of this medium of communication, charting an entire career path will probably not be possible. Having said that, let me give you some general thoughts, which should hopefully provide you with some direction. I think the first thing you need to do is focus on a sm...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

SnehaJag, After half a decade of work experience, no one is going to be overly concerned about your lack of involvement in extracurricular activities in college. What matters most is how you’ve performed in the half decade after college. Now to your specific questions: 1. Short answer is - yes it is...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Northstar88, To answer your last questions first, very few things would result in an automatic ding, and working part-time isn’t one of them. A 700+ GMAT is a good to have, but if I were you, given the schools you are aiming for, I would think of it as simply being a checkbox that the admissions com...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Rbpatel, Since you want to execute a career change - from IT to Marketing within Automobiles - an MBA would make it easier, and this is probably the right time to be thinking seriously about it. Here are reasons why: 1. When you execute a career change, in most cases your prior work experience would...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Gauravparmarr, Thanks for your 5 detailed posts. From your posts, I understand that you would like to get into some sort of a product management job/role, which, if not immediately, will at some point in time also give you the option of branching out and starting your own venture. From what you have...

Re: Free Career Counselling Online | Indian candidates

Ashokraj, It is ironic to state this on an MBA-focused forum/site, but it is important to realize that an MBA is not a surefire ticket to professional success across domains and functions. If your intent is to "…learn new things and build competencies to be able to get recognition in present industr...

Re: Management Consultant Jobs on your mind?

Akshay Ahuja, First, I am doubtful that you will be able to get yourself a consulting position that would allow you focus on operations, SCM and strategy. In my experience, a consulting position would either be focused towards operations/SCM or strategy, not both. Over time, I have observed that inn...

Re: Management Consultant Jobs on your mind?

Akshay Ahuja, One of the assumptions behind my recommendation was “all things being equal.” If we are talking about a multiple of 2, then definitely this decision warrants more thought. I have always advised people to not be too concerned about compensation or location. All that matters for the firs...

Re: Management Consultant Jobs on your mind?

Akshay Ahuja, Both of those offers are great. A job in design would force you to think out of the box, and be innovative and creative. A production/maintenance job at SAIL would expose you to the best manufacturing/production processes and systems in the country - a dream for any manufacturing/produ...

Re: Management Consultant Jobs on your mind?

Koolkat, I will not mince words - with your current profile, an immediate shift to some flavor of consulting looks very difficult. To understand your situation a little better, you have switched career paths quite a few times - ECT, GRE/CAT, finance, marketing company and finally animation. Discount...
