Its been a long time since I've blogged - but I need to address an important issue that I've been facing here at business school.
Summer internship recruitment has been an incredibly humbling experience. After performing well academically for the past 6 months, the MBA has opened up doors that I wouldn't have thought possible. I interviewed with almost every "top" firm/company in America. Perhaps I'd be the long-shot that made it through.
But after all the interviews - I'm here unemployed.
As you can imagine I take these rejections very personally because these companies rejected the man and not the resume. Always thought my strength was the former. But even with a top school, top grades, and a top GMAT on my resume - I can't get an offer.
Which brings us to the important issue I want to address: Every part of business school is the hardest part until the next one. GMAT, B-school applications, fall grades, networking & sip circles, resume drops and interviews. I'm sure that whatever is next will be even tougher.
In any case I've been questioning if this whole process is worth it - I need to do some soul searching.
