Candidate:

Mx. CPG Marketer

About Me:

I am a dual citizen of the US and another Anglosphere country and have international study and work experience. I am currently an Assistant Marketing Manager at a well-known global CPG company in NYC where I have worked for 2 years since graduation. I am passionate about LGBTQ+ issues, fashion and beauty, travel, dance and yoga.

Details:

Undergrad School: Top 25 Private Non-Ivy

Undergrad Major: Economics & A Romance Language

GPA: 3.95

GMAT: 750

Age: 23,  Ethnicity: White

Extracurriculars: Yoga Teacher (currently), ESL Teacher (undergrad), Leadership position in LGBTQ+ Business organization (undergrad)

Work History:

Title: Assistant Marketing Manager

Length of Employment: , 9 mos

Title: Marketing Management Development Program

Industry: CPG

Company: Global

Length of Employment: 1 yr, 3 mos

Big Life Wins:

At 23 years old I am managing a portfolio of products that does over $100M+ in annual sales, responsible for launch execution and 360 marketing plans. On a personal note, as a gender non-conforming person I see it as a win to have made it this far in the “business world” where there is very little representation from people who look like me.

Post MBA Goal:

I am interested in an MBA to gain valuable skills in general management and entrepreneurship. In the short term post-MBA I would either return to a role as a CPG Marketer or try my hand as a Marketing Consultant ideally at MBB. In the long term I would like to become a General Manager/CEO of a fashion, beauty or luxury goods company.

Target School: Berkeley Haas

Status: Open

Considering: Duke Fuqua, McCombs School of Business, UCLA Anderson

    Hi, it’s Nisha with mbaMission! There’s a LOT to like about your profile: very strong academics, a great start to your CPG marketing career, and a track record of meaningful extracurricular leadership. And on top of that, you’re absolutely right about the diversity factor that you bring.

    I think that with a well-executed application (including recommendations that attest to your exceptional potential), you’d be in strong contention at a number of top schools – to the list you’ve provided, I’d strongly recommend adding Kellogg and Ross given their exceptional strengths in marketing. The only concern I have is that you’re so early in your career – however, if things don’t work out for you this year, you can always reapply next year without …

    Mx. CPG Marketer – Thanks for sharing your profile! Susan here from Stratus.

    Congrats on the solid undergrad performance and stellar GMAT! These stats serve as a foundation for strong applications.

    Your work experience is incredibly impressive for someone so early in their career. I like that you are able to show impact from the work that you have done.

    Stratus has been a partner with Out4Undergrad and I have worked with a number of clients who had leadership roles with the organization. I’m not sure if this is the business organization that you reference. If not, you might see if your company would get involved as a recruiter of LGBTQ+ talent by partnering with O4U. This would give you an opportunity to show continued commitment to …
