Hello,

Hope you are doing well,

My name is John Lewis and I am very much interested in applying to HBS, Stanford and Wharton.

I have worked for a top consulting firm in the Energy Sector. I have one quick question and would appreciate any steer from you.

During my tenure at my firm, I have had the opportunity to work on both Renewable Energy projects as well as on Oil & Gas projects (improving sustainability of oil & gas).

In the career vision essay for HBS, Stanford and Wharton. Do you think I am better off emphasizing on Renewable Energy or on the Oil & Gas experience. I gather that Renewables are the next hot-topic for every one living today. However, having worked in the middle east, Oil & Gas is as well a hot topic.

Would really appreciate it if you can let me know whether I should discuss renewables, Oil & Gas or both?

Many thanks for your help,

Cheers,
John

Hello johnlewis271, thanks for your question.

I think you should summarize all the work you’ve done in terms of sectors and functions. Your experience is your experience, and you should take credit for all of it.

That said, it really comes down to what you want to do post-MBA. If your goals center on renewables, then draw upon your experience there. And, if oil & gas, then play up the good work you’ve done there. The key is to paint a picture that cohesively ties together your past, present, and future. And, of course, demonstrate to the admissions committees that your desired career path necessitates an MBA.

Best of luck,
Brian
