B-Schooled Podcast Episode #161: Write the Essay That Scares You

stacyblackman 0

The things that scare us—especially in the context of MBA essays—are often the things that make us feel vulnerable, uncertain, or insecure. In short, things that force us to take our armor off and be vulnerable.

Vulnerability in MBA essays also offers you a powerful opportunity to connect with your reader. It allows you to demonstrate self-awareness and/or EQ, and—most importantly—tell a memorable and compelling story about yourself.

In this episode of B-Schooled, we talk about how to choose an essay topic that offers opportunities for candor and vulnerability, including sharing a range of examples and categories of essays that might be a good fit for you. This podcast is a must for anyone interested in writing more boldly and more authentically.
