Mr. International Trade

About Me:

I work on international trade policy for the main committee of jurisdiction in the Senate. The past two years especially have been hectic and involved multiple high stakes legislative wins and standoffs with the executive branch. I interact with policymakers weekly and draft detailed policy memos.


Undergrad School: UCLA

Undergrad Major: Economics

GPA: 3.6

GRE: 323

Age: 26,  Ethnicity: White

Extracurriculars: Part-Time Academic Research, Part-Time Brewery worker, Tennis Coach

Work History:

Title: Professional/Legislative Staff

Industry: Government / Military

Company: U.S. Senate

Length of Employment: 3 yrs, 7 mos

Big Life Wins:

I’ve mentored multiple junior staff, helped them obtain jobs and fulfill their goals in DC. I also help read scholarship applications for my undergraduate institution. Mentorship is important to me.
It is rare for someone my age to have a coveted committee policy job, and I have set myself apart through taking leadership roles on the committee.

Post MBA Goal:

Federal or supply chain consulting at a global firm, with a ultimate goal of transitioning between leadership at a global logistics firm and government service.


Target School: Darden

Status: Open

Considering: Harvard, Tuck, UCLA Anderson, Georgetown McDonough

    Hello Mr. International Trade!
    Krista Nannery from mbaMission here.
    We live in interesting times, Mr. International Trade, and you are at the front lines.

    I think government consulting is a perfect and logical goal for you. B-schools will get it. And consulting firms will love your background.
    Darden will like you a …

    Hi Mr. International Trade, Melisa here from Stratus Admissions. I can only imagine what you have seen over the last couple weeks, let alone the last couple years. Your experience in the Senate in international trade will be a great asset to any business school class. Would love to have a pint to discuss! And you’ve got the stats to back up your experience. It sounds like you’ve had increasing responsibility and if that doesn’t translate into specific job progression (you’ve only listed 1 position here), you’ll want to make sure admissions committees understand this in your application – this would be great information to come from recommenders. You will want to explain your long term goal so that admissions can clearly understand where you …
