I am in a dilemma with regards to my post MBA sort term goal:
1. Initially, I had written the goals statement straight from my heart (as everyone suggests) - I want to be a Management Consultant for a top consulting strategy firm with a focus on Energy sector (I have worked in Energy throughout my career, and want to transition to MC).
2. But then I realized that no that the top firms hire only for generalist roles, and allow their employees to find their niche in due course of time.
3. So I changed it to plain jane Management Consulting. But this doesn't sound too specific. Though there are some transferable skills that I can speak about, but not very relevant to my past experience.
My question is: When the question asks about my short term goal: Can I mention 2 short goals: Either MC with a top firm OR Business Development/ Strategy in Energy industry. This makes my goals look more credible. They are specific goals, yet shows my flexibility.

Yes, you can do that. It shows awareness of the reality of the post-MBA employment scenario and also shows strategic career planning. The key to making it work in the essays is to make a convincing case for both, and also show your preference – plan A, with plan B being another appealing and feasible way to reach your long-term goals.
