1) Brief description of your full-time work experience. What do you do?
I am 25 years old, white male, NYC resident. I have been working in internal audit for a large insurance and consulting firm for a little over a year. I travel around the world performing operational and financial audits across diverse business units. I recommend process improvements and identify control issues which need to be remediated.
Prior to that I worked for nearly 2 years in external audit at a Big 4 firm. I specialized in financial audit for large multinational technology corporations.
2) Your GMAT.
I think I could score a bit higher if I retake.
3) College info: The name of the college, your GPA or grade average, your major, year of graduation. For any graduate degrees, please provide the same info. If you grades are low, please indicate if there were extenuating circumstances.
Seton Hall Univ 2011, Accounting Major, 3.5 GPA.
4) Significant college and post-college extra-curricular activities or community service, especially leadership experience.
A bit weak in this area. Fraternity Member in college. Participated in a 2 week study abroad trip which traveled all over the country of India visiting business schools and large corporations.
Any ideas for a young, NYC resident to improve in this area?
