Hi

I need some help before i start writing my essays for the fall 2013 applications. I've been trying to connect my passion and interests with what I would do post MBA, partly because I'm still not clear as to what career is the right fit. I know this is something i need to figure out myself at this stage but i need some help with that

Any suggestions/references in this direction would be very helpful

Here is my Profile:

Hi, SrikrishnaChavali,

Thanks for your post. I think you are asking for advice about identifying career direction. You could start by thinking about your strongest skills and experiences. You could talk to contacts who work in your fields of interest to narrow down the right role for someone with your skill set. You can also research these roles through professional associations, the internet, informational interviews, classes, or other outlets. Once you have decided on your career direction, you can use examples from your experiences to date to show that this path makes sense for you. It is essential that you communicate your career goals clearly to the admissions committee, so I encourage you to really work to get those nailed down.

Good luck,

Susan Kaplan
