I would like you to evaluate my profile please and if you could guide me on how to improve my profile to increase my acceptance rate in top 30 MBA colleges.
10th - 87%
B Tech - biotech - 80%
GMAT- yet to be given
work exp= 2 years TCS (software engineer) 1 year HP ( business consultant) till date.
looking for opportunities outside IT industry- NGO or Startups. Will quiting corporate and joining NGO or STartup help increase my changes to get admit. Also, I have heard that worknig with corporate for 1 year is too less. If I quit HP and work in NGO my profile will be:
2 years TCS
1 year HP
1 year NGO
Will this give n impression of instability in my profile. ?
please suggest how do i improve my profile.
