My Recommendation _ pls help [#permalink] New post 25 Mar 2011, 07:22
Hi,

like lots of candidates, I am not planning to disclose my MBA plan to my current manager. (She is quite tough and i dont want to put my current job at risk)

I've convinced my previous boss (same company but different department) to write recommendation for me.

for the 2nd one, I am thinking to ask my project sponsor, who has directly supervised one of my major projects and provided guidance and coaching. the duration of the project was 6 months. During this period of time, we worked closely on the proposal, analysis, development and final delivery presentation to senior management.

Do you think my project sponsor can be a good recommender?

Thanks,
Vince
Current Student

There are some reasons why immediate supervisor isn't suitable for recommendations. Poor writing, over-worked with tendency to miss deadline or slave driver like your manager. choose sby who can tell about key areas BSchools look for:

1) leadership and career progression
2) professional impact you made
3) Teamwork
4) Organisational skills
5) Dealing with adversity, problem solving

A good recommendation can't get you automatically into BSchools, but a poor one can keep you out. Choose recommenders wisely
