Hi,

I am a graduate with 63% aggregate in Engg and 4 years of work exp with 2 in IT industry, 1.5 in my father's production(manufacturing) industry and the last 5 months in a PSU in the production line.. I'll start pursuing part time M Tech from june this year. Am planning to give GMAT this year and apply for a college after 3 years from now and i will be in the production(manufacturing) line till then.
I feel my profile is very diverse and lacks anything significant, viz. paper presentations, academic achievements and extra curriculars.

Please suggest ways to improve my profile.

P.S. I'm aiming for the elite MBA colleges

Can you tell us a bit about your father's firm? How big it is? What it does exactly? what your role is? What you expect to do in the future??

This will help us evaluate your profile.

At my father's firm, we manufacture critical components and assemblies for missiles for the army. My role was scheduling the load as per priority, preparing quotations for tenders and ensure that the man and machine utilisation was as high as possible. It had 50 people working and is a moderately big company with an annual turnover of about INR 35000000. I was technically involved with the company too.

we are sub contractors to the organisation with which i'm presently working. the reason i took up this job is because it was in the same line as my previous job and working with a government organisation is a very educative experience.

In the future, i'd like to look after my father's business and increase its customer base to the national and hopefully international regions.

Sounds pretty good actually. Well the first thing you need to do is PROVE success. In a family business this can sometimes be hard because you don't really have the same boss oversight like you would in a corporate situation (it's most likely a dad or uncle or something), so the question is how can you CONCRETELY prove that you are doing a great job? Very often this will be through your work - Did you l and the biggest client in company history? Did you double sales? triple the workforce size? REduce overall costs by 30%?? All such things are very helpful to prove that you are a strong candidate. Beyond that, yes, it's a very good idea to do whatever you can to increase your involvement outside of work. Join/lead at least one community service group/event regularly over the next years. If you have any other projects like startups or advising, it can be good too.

Then of course, rocking the GMAT helps a lot too!

Hi k9xlara2rr,

You have an average profile but you can make your application strong by working on few things like achievements in family business you are doing currently. You should also make your contacts with the alumnus of Schools you are targeting and based on the requirement you can improve on your extra curricular and GMAT Scores.

For online GMAT Preparation visit http://tinyurl.com/cp46f9x.

If you happen to be based in Delhi, you can attend a MBA workshop by the alumnus of ISB along with alumnus of various top global B-Schools during the dates mentioned in this links http://tinyurl.com/cjy62uh

Feel free to post further queries if you might have.

Cheers!!
Neha Singh
