Big Life Wins:
Turned down promotion with my current employer to an audit manager role in order to gain corp finance exp as a Senior Associate. Similarly, have turned down accounting roles with worlds largest search engine and social media platform that would double my pay. I see my patience as a big win – with the goal of getting as much pre-MBA experience as i can.
Post MBA Goal:
Leverage my existing experience and that gained through an MBA to transition into management consulting. Ultimately, hope to use this experience to work with operational NGO’s that support causes I am passionate about. | EDITOR’S NOTE: Get comfortable talking about what drives you.
