    Hi Mr. Italian Energy, this is Kristen from MBA Prep School. I think your recent job change makes you a more attractive MBA candidate. Accounting can be a tough industry to show leadership in, but you’ve advanced to a stage where you have handled more complex transactions and now you are using your finance skills within a more focused industry you are passionate about. it shows your willingness to step outside your comfort zone, a big plus!

STRENGTHS: 1) LEADERSHIP: Fantastic leadership at work with relatively few years of experience. Accounting can often be a hard sell.
