Candidate:

Ms. Ballerina

About Me:

I’m a product manager at a Fortune 100 company and I dance professionally on the side. I also teach dance to kids and adults. I run a career-based podcast called “Style, Not Fashion”. I went to one of the best business schools in the Northeast majoring in Marketing, and minoring in French- I also studied abroad in FR.

My product manager job is a contract- mention this? I am also a first-generation college student.
– I am on the BUSINESS side of fashion. I was never an arts student.
– I have lived very close to Harvard my whole life. I was thinking this might give me some type of home-field advantage. Do they want to see their community represented in their school?

    Hi Ms. Ballerina, So coming from a dance background myself, I couldn’t resist commenting on your profile. I know full well that to have achieved the level that you have in the dance world you have to have demonstrated serious dedication and grit. But in addition you have such a great breadth of interesting strands to your story – a marketing degree and a role with a Fortune 100 which showcases some commercial understanding (I don’t see too much of an issue in the fact that it is a contract position), a podcast, choreography…the list goes on.
