Career Now/Career Future???? [#permalink] New post 12 Feb 2012, 06:48
Dear All, I am in immense dilemma of taking the right decision between career (existing job) and GMAT for future career. I was promoted to a Project Head 6 months back for Operations of a new assignment. If anyone was following my prep updates - i was doing miserable with my GMAT prep - reason obvious, I could not focus on both together. A project head role was as demanding as I thought, I was positive to be able to cope up with both. I was wrong, its a pre opening project, work is different and more brain taxing than operational projects. I decided on a job change, an operational project, at a step (position) down but additional job responsibilities (why??? so I can move up real quick in a years time), to be able to correctly balance my work and studies. But here is the catch, I again got a mind blowing pre opening project head offer from another company. It is lucrative (role, profile,position so its not only pay/perks etc) and thus making me think again is my move to step down a position (only took over for 6 months) CORRECT!But yes, I neither brand would be a compromise....

Will this impact my application negatively? But most importantly, I know I can justify this move of mine strongly, but my question is "am I taking the right decision".............With so many years hard work/experience, this position means as much to me as GMAT ...... :crazy: :crazy: :problem:

You should probably go to the ask admission consultants page and ask at least two of them. They have the knowledge and experience in the admission consulting area. The more thorough you are, the better advice you will get. Here is the link:

Good luck!
