Candidate:

Mr. Future Gaming Industry Product Manager

About Me:

I am 25 years old working in local government. The past year, I have had the opportunity to work on COVID-19 disaster relief projects in the area and went from training a team of 5 to managing a team of 30 in less than 6 months. I am looking to use an MBA to continue working in a product-management-type role in the gaming industry.

I attended Cornell University for a year but transferred due to a family financial change.
Originally, I obtained a 720 three years ago and was able to retake the test this year and scored 760! I am curious to see how my odds are impacted by this change in score! Thank you 🙂
