Need Direction! PLEASE HELP!!! [#permalink] New post 15 Jun 2005, 21:45
I graduated from Columbia College in 1996. I have sense held positions in Customer Service (supervision), Fundraising (department coordinator), Management (Office Manager) and am currently an Executive Assistant.

I am interested in organizational development and human resource management. I don't remember exactly but i believe my GPA was 2.8. I will take the GMAT in September of this year.

I would like to become an HR/Organizational Consultant and do Staff Training and Development.

What steps should i take? Do I need to get an MBA to do these things?

Please offer some advice to a person who never thought they would end up in school again.

And is the GMAT as hard as people make it seem?

I actually don't think that you need an MBA for those things. An MBA definitely doesn't hurt, but what you're talking about sounds fairly specialized. If you're not sure about an MBA, I think some schools offer other graduate programs in Organizational Behavior and related topics. You can get a Masters or even a PhD in those fields.

As for the GMAT, it's definitely not THAT hard! Our advice is just to give yourself a lot of time to prepare. Hopefully you've already started. Buy a book or two, including the Official Guide for GMAT Review. If you still feel unprepared after reading those, then consider taking a class such as Kaplan or Veritas. But, with enough time to prepare you should be fine.
