Candidate:

Mr. Multiple Jobs

About Me:

4 jobs, 6 years out of school. Started in a Finance Rotation Program at F500 (Strategy/M&A/FP&A), interest in M&A led to boutique IB. Found my passion there; knew I wanted to be a private equity investor focused on partnering with founder-owned companies. Went to MM IB for better M&A experience, and am now working for a lower middle market PE fund.

    My gut tells me you’re someone that Wharton should want in their next class. Why? It’s not because you’ve had four jobs in six years. It’s not because your GMAT score of 710 is 20 points below Wharton’s 730 class average. And it’s not because your GPA of 3.4 is a tad below the 3.6 class average. You are going to get into Wharton because of your tenacity in working your way into that PE job and because of your impressive series of big wins at three of the firms you’ve worked for. You are also going to find that Chicago Booth will try to sway you with scholarship money which could make your decision more difficult. But that is a good thing. Wharton accepts …

    Nice job making an impact in those 4 jobs! It’s always a plus when you can cite concrete results and impact you’ve made, and when you have outcomes such as being asked to be an instructor for future analysts. It sounds like you were very intentional in the job switches you did make, and continued moving towards your ideal work in PE, and I feel your progression makes sense and you will be able to explain your choices in an understandable and compelling way, so the pure frequency of jobs in that timeframe is not a concern in your case. A GMAT that was a touch higher and some more extensive community activities would be a plus, but …

    Hello, Mr 4 jobs, it’s Lisa Cummings of Stratus Admissions. Rather than focus on the number of jobs, I suggest you focus on the incredible impact you have had. Normally so many jobs in so few years would raise a red flag but you cut a deliberate path to a very difficult sector – PE. Congrats, that doesn’t happen very often. . This should help to mitigate your stats which are slightly below average for Wharton. assuming you’ve already applied be sure to prepare well for the group based interview at Wharton – interviews can make or break a candidate. Ditto for Booth and Columbia. Good luck!
