Hi Jon,


Would you say the recruiting efforts are mainly focused on companies that are located in the south? I am from New York, and am definitely looking to come back to the Northeast following business school. Do you think it would be very difficult for me to land a job in New York coming from Goizueta? I am looking to go into Brand Management at a consumer packaged goods company. Thank you for your help.

Pru,

Great to hear that you have been to campus - that was actually another draw for me. Might sound small, but the amount of natural light at GBS does not compare to any other school I visited - you underestimate just how much sunlight can help until you get cooped up in a windowless room for hours and hours.

I am not a career switcher as I came from Advertising and am now in Marketing Strategy; I am simply "on the other side" working on the "client side". However, many folks are career switchers here and there are numerous resources available in the CMC to prepare you for a new career. However, I would argue that the strongest resource is you classmates, especially the 2nd Year students who are career switchers themselves. I cannot tell you how much time I, and all my 2nd Year classmates, have spent working with the 1st Year students as they search, apply, interview and prepare for internships - not only do we consider it somewhat of a duty (ie "paying it forward"), but we are certainly incented to help by the prospect of continuing to have one the highest job placement ratings (98% full time employment 3 months after graduation for the class of 2012) in the country.

Hope this helps,
Jon

Bkane,

Take a look at the Career Management Center (CMC) website (http://goizueta.emory.edu/degree/fulltimemba/career_management_center/) and the most recent Employment Report (http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/f900d1f9#/f900d1f9/4). Some statistics of note for the Class of 2012:
- 24% employed in the Northeast region
- 24% in a Marketing function
- 13% in Brand Management

I think the critical thing you need to consider is the list of companies actively recruiting on campus at all the schools you are considering. I imagine you have a list of top companies, so you can start there. We do have a number of recent alums at a lot of the CPG companies with a presence in the NYC area (L'Oreal, J&J, Kraft, Colgate-Palmolive) and they would be more than willing to speak with you (even as a prospective).

However, I would strongly encourage you not to pigeon hole yourself at this point. I was convinced I wanted to do brand management for a multinational CPG upon entering GBS, though ended up developing a strong passion for marketing strategy/consulting, which is now directing my future career path. There is so much more to marketing than brand management, which a lot of people (myself included) do not realize until coming back to school and seeing all the opportunities that are out there. Also, many of my friends from the Northeast have fallen in love with Atlanta - so don't rule that out either.

Ultimately, you need consider where your priorities lay and how rational they are. If, after that, you are 100% sure that CPG brand management in NYC is your calling, then target schools where you know those companies are actively recruiting and have a curriculum which will prepare you for a career in brand management. But, really do your homework and be honest with yourself.

With all that said - we have companies from all over the country coming to campus and conduct 1st Year Career Treks to a number of major CPG markets. The opportunities to network with these companies is certainly present. I hope this helps and please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any other questions.

Best,
Jon

4 more days! Friday can't get here any sooner!

Btw, does anyone know if they call admitted applicants prior to decision date? International applicants?

Also check opus because that gets updated with a decision

Opus is still showing items in my to-do list [essays, resume, etc.] despite my submission before the round 3 deadline. Anyone else facing this problem? Wondering if I should wait or send them these files on email.

I haven't received my OPUS Id yet. Did you get it automatically or do you have to request for it somehow?

Don't worry, I had the same situation. As far as I understood this is quite normal for Emory. Adcom do not update your profile when they receive your application package but do it approximately in a week or sometimes even longer. I still have item pointed as initiated in opus however I have already passed interview (more than 3 weeks ago).

I received mine approximately in 10 days after application submission. It is not a quick process I recommend just wait for couple of weeks and only then write e-mail. Keep in mind that right now is a finish line for R2 candidates and deadline for R3 candidates (application submission) so I believe Adcom have much things to do.

I am with you Linda. This is my last hope this application season. Really hope it comes through.

Someone had posted earlier that they could call upto a day earlier than decision date and that his/her opus was updated a day earlier too. So it's possible we hear by today itself. :)

All the best to all of us really.
