There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
A prime example is the mobile industry. Ask anyone in the USA, and they will say Apple (iPhone) or RIM (Blackberry). Ask any business person and they are more likely to say RIM Ask any regular user in the rest of the World and they will say Nokia
I would say beyond the company its also the function. If you are in a rotational leadership program at GE thats going to be far more impressive than many other positions that people with undergrad degrees get into. Obviously places like McKinsey which has a very high bar for all positions to be hired into will look good.
I tend to think that job functions and title can have a much greater impact. For example, I think engineers can have very impressive jobs and titles working for nonbrand name companies or government (and contractors) doing something very outside the norm. Having a unique specialty that relates very well to goals can be an amazing selling point. This may be unique to engineers, because I tend to think that banking and consulting gigs brand matters more than function...
Kellogg Class of 2010...still active and willing to help. However, I do not do profile reviews, don't offer predictions on chances and am far to busy to review essays, so save the energy of writing me a PM seeking help for these. If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond. GMAT Club Premium Membership - big benefits and savings
i think this follows the "most desired employers for mba grads" list pretty well. if you already work where mbas want to work, you are ahead of the game. also among traditional non-traditional applicants, i think going to west point and being an officer in the military is good pedigree.
Anyone have any opinions regarding Nestlé, Novartis, Roche, Siemens, Adidas, Schlumberger, Shell, Bosch, Q-Cells, Syngenta, and E.ON?
I am looking into these companies in Europe, which is where I live and will attend b-school.
Also, I wonder how much value the European firms will place on my military experience and West Point "pedigree". I guess I will find out as I begin the recruitment and job app process this Fall. But, it would be great to hear from anyone who has worked in Europe in HR or happens to know about this from past experiences. I know that I must be able relate my past military experience into the new job and/or industry, and of course use the right "buzz words" that non-military professionals understand.
Easy might be harsh - you forget that those who make it into the IAS, IFS and IPS go through a more rigorous entrance process than even the IIT's - yes this is still true despite how much tougher IIT's have gotten over the last 2 decades.
So - these folks are generally super qualified academically and their work experience speaks for itself.
It depends on the applicant's country too. From India P&G is a very very solid brand. Some top commercial banks regularly send a few ( very few but regular) to top 3.
But from India, the best brand name is probably government. If someone is at a top All India Government Service then it is easy ( yes, 'easy') to get into H/W.
