Small Company vs Big Company Job experience [#permalink] New post 21 Dec 2011, 21:03
Hello Stacy,

As my understanding is working in a big firm is better for an MBA admission than at a smaller company (less than 200 employees).
I work for a small company and intentionally declined the opportunity to work for bigger ones because it would give me more responsibility, ability to interact and understand the management's strategic moves in improving the firm.


If I was working in a big firm the admissions committee knows before hand about more about me as the interviewing or working for a big firm itself sets a standard. My assumption it is harder for the admissions committee to judge the potential a candidate working in a smaller firm and his contribution.


Is my assumption correct, if so how do I working in a smaller firm compensate for it.

I appreciate your time and effort.


Merry Christmas

Thanks,
Suresh

Hi syalaman,

Thanks for posting. Admissions teams are looking for diversity in their classes, so they will not necessarily prefer candidates coming from larger companies. If you work for a smaller company and are looking to stand out, you should focus on your personal essays and recommendations and discuss your accomplishments. Business schools are looking for applicants who have made an impact.


Best,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
