Career / MBA Admission Advice [#permalink] New post 04 Nov 2013, 22:52
Hi;

I have recently completed my undergraduate degree and was hoping to get some pointers on how to best spend my next few years;

Completed B. Eng (Civil) & B Comm (Finance) in June 2013 from one of the top Australian universities, 2nd Class Honors, mediocre marks (GPA 2.8)

Ideally I would like to work for a top consulting firm, however after not getting an interview for MC grad roles beginning 2014 I've started working professionally as an engineer.

I was planning on reapplying for consulting roles over the next few years however if am continuously unsuccessful, I was planning on applying for the business schools after several years engineering experience and using an MBA as a gateway to MC.

If I'm unable to break into MC with my current qualifications, how am I situated to get into a decent business school with several years of engineering experience, the marks that I have, and a hopefully decent GMAT score? Would it be worthwhile studying a Master's while working full time as an engineer, attempting to move to a strategy role in another company/possibly even a banking role, or even heading back to university full time to rectify my sub-par grades? Will I have difficulty transferring into MC from engineering/is it a legitimate concern to get 'stuck' in the field if I work in it for several years?

Any advice is very much appreciated.
