Hi River,

Congratulations on securing your position and thanks for sharing your recuiting and negotiating experience.

Good work champ.

Now that I am back on board here, read this thread, and officially accepted a position...time to update

Prior to Kellogg I was an engineer working in the defense space, all engineers for the most part are career changers of some sort.

After graduation I will be joining a fortune 500 manufacturing company as a manager. Based on function, responsibility, and starting position I am very excited...my only complaint is that I wont get much time off since they wanted me to start ASAP...I was the only person interviewed currently in school, the rest of the applicants I met graduated from b-school 2-4 years ago. So no fun summer of traveling for me like my buds, who don't start until end of August or September; I will be starting within a month of graduation.

For those looking at off campus recruiting my position is a perfect example of how strange the process can be. I applied to a position that was intended for alumni, talked to a few Kellogg alums who work for the company to get a sense of the position. Had a first round interview where the interviewer talked about how the Kellogg guys were pulling for me but asked if I felt I was under qualified since I didnt have a few years of post MBA experience. Flew out for a second round with several other people got interviewed by the SVPs and COO, and somehow got the job. Only regret in the whole process was not putting an even higher requested total compensation since they gave me exactly what I put, which I admittedly thought was going to be high but was hoping to anchor the starting negotiating point haha...lesson learned: unless you are terrified of losing an offer because of it...take what you think is a very high but somewhat justifiable compensation request and add even more to it.
