Hi,

Thank you in advance for taking out the time to evaluate my profile. I am sharing below my background so you can
i) evaluate my profile,
ii) identify strong areas and improvement areas (and subsequently how to address them)


a) Work Experience: I have 78 months of work experience in the IT and Consulting area. I currently work for one of the Big 3 IT and Consultancy company. I currently work as a project lead for a 7 member team and has been promoted twice in the organization.

b) International Work Experience: 10 months of consultancy and lead experience for a leading insurance client in U.S for a million dollar project.

c) GMAT: 660 (Q: 47, V:34)

d) Education:
I have
-a Bachelors in Computer Science Engineering with a GPA of around 3 to 3.2 with a first class with distinction
- Two technology certifications

e) Activities outside Profession:
- I have been an active organizing volunteer for the CSR wing of my organization and college for which I actively teach for school kids
- I have won two software presentation competitions during my college days.

f) Programs considered: Technology management in ISB ,NUS, Nanyang, S.P Jain.

g) Goals: I would like to work as a product / program manager for a product dev company.

Also please answer my question about my international exposure?. Is the exposure good enough for the target schools?. I may get an opportunity to work in U.S again as a consultant. can you please let me know whether working as a proj lead at offshore / as a consultant at onsite will improve my chances?.

Hello sir,
Your international exposure is very good. There will be many candidates who you will be up against who won't have any. And 10 solid months is great. If you have anything else too, you can dig around to pull that out (i.e. virtual leadership or collaborations over borders).

But right now your weak spot is your GMAT. There are gonna be a ton of candidates out there with 50 70 points higher applying tot he same schools, and really since you have time, the best favour (wrote it british style just for you ;) ) you can do yourself is to retake and get a bunch of points higher.
