Please help me find a solution [#permalink] New post 12 Jun 2011, 18:07
I have graduated from a big 10 university couple of years ago. My degree is in Biology, and down the road, my goal is to gain admission to a top business school (top30). However, I am finding it difficult to even get entry level job offers with my degree. I am interested in the securities markets, but since I didn't get my degree in computer science or another quantitative field, it is extremely difficult for me to break into this field. I am willing to settle for sales, advertising, marketing and consulting jobs. Again, my degree doesn't allow me to break into these fields easily. However, I can easily become an insurance agent, financial sales representative, and a real estate agent. Do business schools see these careers as "sleazy" or view them unfavorably? I ask, because these careers are terribly easy to break into. Any individual with a high school degree can enter these fields. Lastly, what can I do to increase my chances of working for a Fortune 500 company?

Thank you.

Hi same7,

To break into any industry you are interested in, I recommend you leverage your school's career center and alumni network, and use your own personal network. Attend as many related events as you can, and continue searching through various sites for open positions. Your hard work will create opportunities.

With regards to jobs that business schools are interested in, business schools are most looking for candidates who have made an impact and who have had leadership experience. If a position allows for this, for you to potentially manage and lead others, then it can be a good opportunity.

Hope this was of help.
