Mr. Midwest Engineer

About Me:

I’m currently a facades engineer looking to make a jump into business operations management or supply chain management for an global consumer products company like Unilever or Proctor and Gamble. I’m attracted to the European schools to make an international career move, but am somewhat hesitant with the current situation.


Undergrad School: Ivy League

Undergrad Major: Civil Engineering

GPA: 3.7

GMAT: 750

Age: 29,  Ethnicity: White

Other Degree/Certification: Professional Engineer License

Industry: Structural engineering

Company: Boutique Firm

Length of Employment: 6 yrs, 3 mos

Title: Office Engineer

Industry: Construction Management

Company: Top Firm

Big Life Wins:

I was 1 of 2 engineers to move from our midwest office to NYC to open a new branch. I helped grow the office from 2 to 5 employees with revenue growth of 240k to 900k over 4 years.
I’ve had a physical impact on the NYC skyline, with a number of buildings throughout the city (and country) that I can point to and say, I engineered that skyscraper.

Post MBA Goal:

I’m looking to make a jump into business operations management or supply chain management for a global consumer products company like Unilever or Proctor and Gamble. I enjoy data analytics and decision making. I also would like to move to a company with an international presence, allowing me to work abroad (preference for Europe or NZ/Aus).

    I come from a family of structural/civil engineers and am always thrilled to see someone who has pursued this path over other more flashy engineering roles!

    Congrats on the solid stats – these will position you well for success at LBS and other top programs.
