There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I am writing up my MBA essay and while writing this, I am talking about my first job experience and I am struggling hard to logically build a reasoning as to how I lost my first job and I found a new job and how the experience turned out to be a positive one....
Do I just put an abrupt end to my first job experience by saying"... this job taught me blah, blah, blah"... and the very next sentence is "This experience while fulfilling, was cut short due to budgetary reasons and I ended looking for another job opportunity.". The two sentences seem very contrasting (one sounds very positive and the very next one sounds a complete 180 degree turnaround)
Is it absolutely necessary to state that the reason you moved to the other job or started scouting around for it was the fact that you lost the first one? Why do you even want to add a negative event in your essay? Can you show that your job change was motivated by conscious choices on your part, rather than as a side effect of losing the earlier one?
Regardless of what you may really have thought at the time, how about stating that you were entertaining the idea of switching to the new job/field while in the older one, and had done some research in the area of your interest? This can make the difference between sounding like a helpless victim of the job market and one who's taking charge of his/her professional future. You could then state that a downturn in your old industry only served to catalyze your transition into the new role, for which you were eagerly preparing anyway.....get the drift?
