Google brand for b-school? How much will it help? [#permalink] New post 18 Feb 2010, 19:02
Hello,

I am thinking about taking a pay cut to make a lateral move (associate to associate) to Goog.

I'll be going from a fairly well known entertainment company (non-traditional route) doing corp dev / strategy to product / consumer operation side at google. It would be a bit of a responsibility hit as well.

Do you guys think this will be that much helpful for my chances at top 5 b-school programs? Is this a no brainer of a situation if i am planning to attend b-school?

I came from a top 40 undergrad with very competitive GPA. I already have 3 years of experience under my belt. thanks in advance.

If you are going to have less responsibility, I would not recommend you make the move, unless the position you are going to is more closely aligned with your long-term goals.

Best,
Linda
