Career progression? [#permalink] New post 15 Aug 2007, 06:32
I have an interesting situation at work. I have been approached by a director for a position in his group. This is a position with more responsibility and it is considered a promotion. I did give him the heads up that I might be leaving for b-school in a year and he still seems interested.

I am leaning towards accepting the offer as it is definitely the right step in my career. But will it look odd if I write about this move in my essays as a sign of career progression as I would have worked in the new role for only a few months?

Your career progression at this stage only shows how much the company values your contribution from the past few months / years. So, why won't you want to mention this progression? I know that you won't have much to say about your new job since the progression .. but that doesn't (And shouldn't) undersell your achievements that led to the progression.

Definitely mention it, getting a promotion is also a positive thing...especially after you informed them of your desire to go back to school since that shows that they truly do value you and wont hold you back just because you are leaving.

Thanks guys. This might cause me to get reco's from some of my previous managers or dotted line managers. Hopefully the schools can see my reasons for doing so.

This might push back a few of my apps to R2 :)
