Consultant Bio

Hi, I’m Angela, and I’m a lifelong student of human nature. I’m fascinated by what it means to be human, what unites us, and how we can fulfill our true potential. I also believe that life is supposed to be fun, and therefore, so is work. During my nearly 20-year professional development career, I have helped thousands of people (mostly MBAs) uncover their unique character, values, and professional desires, so that they can shine in any environment, get everything they want in their careers, and have more fun along the way. Working with me means you’ll be more self-aware, more self-confident, and better connected in your community.

After my MBA at Chicago Booth, I did my apprenticeship in business at the Boston Consulting Group (BCG). I was a consultant, and then I shifted to a training and recruiting role: I coached women from top 10 business schools through BCG’s recruiting process and then later to succeed at the firm. Some other cool stuff I have done that I use every day in my work: I’m a trained screenwriter, experiential philosopher (I have a degree from Yale to prove it!), and a lover of Eastern thought, mindfulness, and meditation.

Company Information

OK you’re smart, so you’ve probably read a lot of these. Here’s how we’re the same as some admissions consultants out there: in our elite school packages, we touch every single part of your application for your target schools as many times as we need to until the finished product inspires both you and us. We bring over a decade of expertise to bear, and we do all of this on a predictable timeline. Much more interesting, though, is what makes Career Protocol different. We’re not really consultants. We’re teachers. Career Protocol is a Professional Development Firm.

We think the MBA application process is a golden opportunity to uplevel your professional profile and executive skillset BEFORE you take the leap into the MBA. So instead of simply editing your essays, we use the MBA application as a training ground for new capabilities that will last you a lifetime.

THE IRRESISTIBLE MBA APPLICATION PACKAGE

Think of the Irresistible MBA Application Package (as we call it) as a nearly year-long course in executive-level self-awareness, communication, and relationship building skills tailored to your needs and experiences. We work with you on every aspect of the MBA application not only to maximize your chances of success but also to uplevel your executive skillset in the process. Your Career Protocol Instructor will teach you how to explore your values, tell epic stories, and build genuine relationships with your fellow humans in everything you do (yes, even when you’re just writing an MBA application!) so that you can have the impact you want to have in your career. Imagine how empowered you’ll feel the first day of class knowing that you used the whole year prior to your MBA building key leadership skills with an experienced teacher by your side.

If you want someone to edit your essays, work with friends and family. If you want to transform your ability to stand out for the rest of your career as the bright shiny unicorn* you are, work with us.

*We mean unicorn in the one-of-a-kind-unique sense, not in the instagrammy** rainbow sense.

** We do like instagrammy rainbow unicorns, tho. Especially the cupcake kind.

ONCE YOU GET INTO BUSINESS SCHOOL…

The fun doesn’t stop. We’ve got…

  • The Interview Hero Coaching Program
  • YOMO: You Only MBA Once (AKA Your Guide to Getting Your Best MBA Internship), and
  • How to Be the Smartest Person in the Room (AKA The Consulting Case Interview Hero Program)

These are all affordable group coaching programs to help you target and get the internship and post-MBA job you really want, while – of course – building your professional skillset every step of the way.

  • Awe-Inspiring Angela
    6 days ago
    Angela made the MBA application process such a fun and pleasant self-reflection journey! Through her guidance and coaching, I feel I have a much better sense of what matters to me, what truly makes me happy and what type of career I want to pursue. This self-knowledge made my applications shine but more importantly will follow me through the rest of my life and guide many of my personal and professional decisions. I was originally very hesitant to first to work with an MBA consultant after having a terrible experience a few years ago. During that whole application process, we only had one 30-minute phone call. Everything else was over email. Outside of reviewing my resume, he took no time to get to know me ...

  • From Reach To Reality
    1 week ago
    I first learned about Angela when visiting business schools across the US in an effort to narrow down my long list of target MBA programs. Many students I spoke to had used admissions consultants, but one name kept coming up again and again: Angela Guido. These recurring references gave me confidence that Angela knew what she was doing before I had even arranged our free 30-minute consultation. Contracting an admissions consultant is no small financial commitment (aside from college tuition, it remains my single greatest expense to date!) so I was sure to speak to a number of potential consultants to find the right one. While I’m sure the other consultants would have helped contribute to my success, the calls I had with them were somewhat ...

  • Angela Is The One
    1 week ago
    Angela Guido is the most pleasant, personal, productive and above-and-beyond type of high-quality consultant you could possibly get for professional or graduate schools admissions, and career development. As a management professional whose career goal is to strive for perfection and excellence, Angela knows what it takes to beautify and tailor your personal stories to take you where you'd like to be. She really does rock and roll! I invited Angela's service for both kinds when I was in mid-career in higher education management. She helped me apply to business and masters programs and develop my career with my organization. Our thorough, realistic and intensive consultation sessions made me become aware of a new, competitive, confident and unique me. Sometimes we have to admit that we ...

  • From Boo-Hoo To Booth
    1 week ago
    What a difference. That was all I could think after wrapping up my first call with Angela. My MBA application wounds were still fresh, having just been rejected by all of my top choice schools. I had worked with one of the “big name” MBA consulting firms on my applications, and while my consultant was helpful editing my essays for grammar and clarity, they didn’t push me on the real meat of my content. I certainly didn’t feel I got value for the money I spent. I decided if I was going to re-apply, I needed to find someone who could really make a difference in my application. From the first call with Angela, I knew she would make that difference. Angela’s client portal was ...

  • Angela Is The Guiding Light That Brought Me Out Of Darkness
    1 week ago
    I suffer from an anxiety disorder. So much so that if I am being tested for an exam or interview, my legs start shivering and teeth chattering. I can hear my heartbeats out loud. I had a B-School interview lined up for 21st Feb, and I wondered how can my body be more nervous that I actually felt I was. Over time, My husband and I have become a big fan of Angela’s work - listening to her webinars and reading her stuff for over a year an half. He the Interview Hero class and book and asked me to take it up as the first thing for preparation. Interview Hero was like getting myself checked up with a psychologist. Even though still anxious, I ...

  • From Frenzied to Fellowship
    2 weeks ago
    I had spoken to an MBA consultant prior to Angela to better understand my strength as a candidate. That initial call with the consultant left me discouraged and frenzied—I felt like there was no way I was going to get into a top program with my statistics. Thankfully, I stumbled upon Angela and in our initial consultation call, she immediately reassured me that I was capable enough to get into a top program. Her optimism in my potential gave me the confidence I needed to surmount the MBA application process. Working with Angela was a very introspective journey. Early in our calls, she was able to quickly and accurately pinpoint who I was as a person and what I valued; and her insights made all ...

  • Angela Made The Process More Positive Than I Ever Imagined Possible
    2 weeks ago
    Working with Angela on my business school applications is one of the best decisions I ever made—not only because Angela helped me get the results I wanted, but because her coaching made a stressful, often overwhelming application process more positive than I ever imagined possible. I was admitted to several M7 schools, including one school with a generous merit scholarship and Stanford GSB. I am over the moon with the outcome, and I am also extremely happy with the personal and professional value I derived from working with Angela to translate my personal values into tangible career goals. Working with Angela helped me grow both personally and professionally; I emerged surer of myself and my judgment, and more confident in what makes me unique—especially in ...

  • Chinese Students, Read This!!! Angela Is An Angel
    2 weeks ago
    Intro Thanks to Poets&Quants’ MBA event in Tate Modern on March 3, 2018, I was linked to Angela, although we didn’t meet up in person and I didn’t think of using a consultant for my MBA application at that moment. It proved me wrong until I failed my first MBA interview later, but luckily I happened to connect with Angela. I guess Poets&Quants has that credit, so thanks a lot. I could never be so assertive to face my dream and to make it real, if I had never spent the last four months with Angela in taking her online course SPITR, reading her new released book Interview Hero, and asking for her advice in my MBA plan. SPITR The moment I decided to attend SPITR was almost ...

  • Admitted With A Full Ride To A More Purposeful Life
    2 weeks ago
    Here's a standard testimonial: I’m almost certain that without Angela’s guidance, I would not have gained admission to several M7 programs, including a full scholarship and Forte Fellowship at my first-choice school. Here's what's different about Angela: She helps her clients truly understand who they are and where they’re going. When I started the application process, I was preparing to gloss over the seemingly odd pivots that I had made in my academic and professional career. Angela was able to help me trace the trajectory of my life and understand how each inflection was an important expression of my unique set of experiences and values. Understanding my story not only made for a few great essays—it empowered me to move through my applications, my interviews ...

  • Angela Is On Another Level
    3 weeks ago
    Having wrapped up my business school application season, I can confidently say that deciding to work with Angela and her team at Career Protocol was possibly the most critical decision I made in the process. I spoke with over half a dozen consultants/firms before my initial call with Angela. A few minutes in, the choice was obvious. While talking with most consultants I could feel this analysis going on in their minds of my odds of being placed into what tier of the program and where I would fit in their roster of clients for the round. Worse, some largely ignored what I said and instead pushed their own puzzling ideas of paths and programs for me. From the beginning, Angela wasn’t there to talk about schools ...
