Candidate:

Mr. Low WE

About Me:

I’ve worked at two different well-known Fortune 500 companies in two different industries doing digital operations for both. I’ve learned I can take my deep understanding of digital process and apply it in vastly different fields–I want to get my MBA to assist in making the career shift into consulting. Decent numbers, low years WE.

Big Life Wins:

In my current role (e-comm), I helped refresh our entire issue-escalation process, reducing on-shore SLA commitments by over ~360,000 manhours YoY–a calculated savings of over $10MM. Converted from contract to full-time within 5 months. With the ACLU, I helped organize digital outreach for the recent Georgia runoffs–which saw record-high turnout.

Post MBA Goal:

I would love to go into consulting so I can implement my knowledge across various fields with diverse clients. Through consulting, I would love to network and find an industry/company I am truly passionate about so after a number of years I can move into a senior management-level corporate role when I’m looking to settle down.

    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission. It’s great that you’ve landed on such a specific passion early on: digital operations. Aside from the impact you’ve made in your professional roles to date, I like the strong GMAT score and the community involvement you’re building so far.

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. Your solid stats will serve you well, and you’ve had good work experience but as your name suggests there’s not a ton of it. You’d have 3 years at matriculation (assuming you’re applying in R1 in the fall), which is under the average but not what I’d call a red-flag number.

I had a client a few years ago who was only two years out when he applied (similar to you) and made a point to really emphasize what he’d already learned in his consulting role, how he was promoted early, and how …
