major work experience issue [#permalink] New post 19 Dec 2013, 12:30
hi,

I have a very peculiar problem regarding my work experience and hope you can help.

My Gmat score is 710.
I have a first class Bachelors of engineering (ECE) degree from a reputable Indian college.
The problem i mentioned above is that after college I was recruited by an MNC software company in which i worked for 2 years 5 months till march 2013. Due to a policy breach on my part I was fired from the company. Later on i joined a start up company and have been working there ever since. I am not clear as to how to approach the issue of me being fired in my applications. Will this prove as a hindrance to my MBA dream?
Basically, can i count the 2 years 5 months as work experience in my application?

P.S. I have great relations with my ex-company peers as well as my supervisor who who can provide peer recommendation letters or evaluation letters if needed.

Thanks

Hi there,

Hmm, that is a tough one... certainly honesty is best, that cannot be emphasized enough; and a lot may depend upon how you describe what happened and what you learned from it, and how serious and/or intentional the 'breach' was. Of course it helps if a former supervisor would still write a glowing rec and even more so if they were able to comment on the incident and shed more light on it in any sort of positive way, but certainly it will be tougher in terms of admissions because you do need to explain and defend what happened and questions that may arise, so you start off having to build yourself up in that way. Wishing you the best.
