Stacy,

This will be a non-profile evaluation post (phew!), and I thank you in advance.

As I am currently looking for a new job after 1 year of experience at a big 4's advisory sector (graduated from a top public school last May), I'm looking into something more suited for my background and interest - strategy consulting, nonprofit consulting, development organization, media/entertainment sector or consulting, etc.

I got in touch with a friend of mine working in WB's Junior Professional Associates. I was wondering how this JPA program (2-year contract) will help position oneself for application to top 5-7 MBA programs with a focus on nonprofit management & entrepreneurship?

I plan to apply in 3-4 years as I just took GMAT Jan 2012.

Thank you Stacy!

Hi tititalin,

Thanks for posting. The JPA program you mention is a great program. What is most important, regardless of what you decide to pursue next in your career, is that in your application you explain why each step is a logical one in your path to an MBA and longer term goals.

If you'd like, we have school specific tips here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/business-school-hub/

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
