Mr. Industry Switch
Hello! I’m a consultant with a T2 Strategy firm, focused on growth and portfolio optimization within the Energy industry. I graduated from a well known Canadian school with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and held ~2 years of internship experience in various highly technical engineering roles at a large-cap oil company.
Undergrad School: Top 10 Canadian School (Bottom Half)
Undergrad Major: Mechanical Engineering
Age: 25, Ethnicity: Asian or Indian
Extracurriculars: Pro-bono weekend consultant (independent of my firm) for the Immigrant Services Foundation of a major Canadian city, Mentor for engineering students
Company: Top Firm
Length of Employment: 3 yrs
Big Life Wins:
Academically, I’ve been a decently high achiever, with a solid engineering GPA. Outside of school, I advise my local Immigrant Services Foundation on operational decisions. 2 years ago, I co-founded a small online clothing line that generated $20K in revenue. I don’t have any stake in this company any more, but I definitely learned a lot from it.
Post MBA Goal:
I’m not very passionate about the Energy industry anymore. I want to transition to a corporate strategy role at a Retail company or work a Bizops role in the tech industry. I think an MBA would be a great way to make this industry transition.
