Work experience [#permalink] New post 07 Jan 2013, 11:07
I have 3 years work experience in Telecom domain with Market Research and Analyst role. I have also worked as content writer for some news papers, magazines and websites and hosted my TV show on Astrology domain(worked as domain expert) for 4 months.
other than that arranged several camps for students, employees to give them free consultation and helped NGOs also.

Can I add my writing experience to my corporate experience? and I don't have very strong acedemic record(above average) so, can my works in different fields fill that gap?


Plz help.

one more thing I want to ask, As I mentioned I have just average or above average academic record with 75% marks in B.Tech but I have published one Research Journal in International Journal/magazine. Is it enough to fill that gap.

Content Writing is a real job, so why not add it? And it's great that you published something and you should totally write it also, but I don't know that it covers up for academic experience that is under par. Getting a higher GMAT would be FAR more effective.

Hi Visshu,

Please mention about what your skills, headship qualities & professional achievements. Your low/avg. GMAT, GPA and acads can surely be make up by positioning well in your application essays & working hard on interviews.

Let me know in case of other concerns you might have. Would be happy to resolve.

Best,
AK

Thanks AK. I'll surely ask you for guidance.

Can you please tell me whether I can add my writing experience to my corporate exp because I have done most of my writing work during my B.Tech days.

I think you absolutely can. It shows another side of you to the adcom, especially if you had a leadership position, or can show strengths etc. Try brainstorming ideas for essays. If you're applying to HBS, then maybe you can talk about wanting to be involved in a leadership position with The Harbus etc. Just a thought.

Good luck ;)

Well it doesn't count for extra months of work, but of course the skills you gained and the experiences you had remain relevant!
