As a former Harvard interviewer and a Harvard graduate, I just wanted to state for the forum that one of the most important things that will get you noticed at Harvard and the top schools, is building a powerful bridge between your past professional experience and your future goals.
Admissions committees want to see that you have a careful and logically thought out plan where, even if you want to use the MBA to change careers and enter a different industry or niche, your overall experience and plan makes rational sense.
In other words, “no experience left behind.” Show the ad com that each step in your journey makes sense in terms of your long-term goals. Build that bridge for the ad com between your past and your future by demonstrating how every position you’ve held along the way has helped develop and lead you to your current professional interests and goals.
By paving a very logical and solid road that shows that you value all of your professional experiences and allow nothing to go to waste, you will be demonstrating a type of leadership in your own life that the ad com only responds to favorably.
