Maintaining Current Network and Activities During B-School [#permalink]
18 May 2007, 10:16
Currently I serve on the steering committee of my national trade group. I do a lot of stuff with these folks, including give trainings, provide TA to other organizations, attend conferences, etc.
I'm trying to decide how much I should stay involved in this stuff. On the one hand, I've built a good network and I want to maintain it -- I think it'll come in handy later as I'm planning to stay in largely the same field. On the other hand, I had seen b-school as a time to really immerse myself in something new.
What is more practical, in terms of my career, my time in school, building my resume? What will recruiters like?
What is the time commitment involved? I am going through something similar and originally I planned on quiting my extracuricular involvement. However, I decided to keep on doing it, parhaps putting in fewer hours, even though it is not business related. If it turns out that I just don't have time for it I'll quit but not until I try.
In your case, since it is related to your future career, I think it makes even more sense to keep it up (assuming time requirements are not too taxing). A long-term comitment to something looks very impressive on a resume.
