Mr. Productivity Focused

About Me:

After an unsuccessful sustainability startup, managing the backstage of a well-known traveling circus show for a year and then completing an international master in three European countries, I landed a job with my current employer.

Big Life Wins:

So in this role I hope to do that in a sector that helps people and society. I am also interested in joining a biotech startup for the same reasons.

    Hi Mr. Productivity Focused, Melisa here from Stratus Admissions. Sounds like you have the power of 3 – three rings, three countries in your MS program and three different industries thus far. In addition, you have start up experience as well as large CPG – and it sounds like some pretty solid leadership within your current team. I think you are set up to be a memorable candidate. Your international experience will be valued at any school, and I like that you are continuing to look at international schools (and schools with strong international reach) for your business education. Where I’d like to know more is why healthcare/biotech? While you appear to have a solid set of skills that will be leveragable into these industries, …
