Hi there,

I hope I'm posting in the correct section of the forum. I am a fresh graduate, just out from school days ago. My biggest concern now is choosing a career that would lead me to a good biz school eventually.

Just a little about myself:
1) National University of Singapore, Bachelor of Arts (Economics & Chinese Studies).
2) Im hoping to get a GMAT score of 700ish or around there.

Two job offers I have gotten right now:
1) SME in shipping (liner),
Position: Trade Executive. Job scope are as following:
- pricing & slot/allocation management.
- communication with overseas offices/ agents to ensure compliance with company's policies/guidelines and problem solving.
- communication with partners on issues related to co-operations and joint ventures.
- responsible for overall profit & lost of trades/ services in control
- key account management
- strategize responses to changes in competition/ social/ political / economical affecting the biz environment
- keen lookout for new business opportunities and development.

2) A listed (in SGX) SME F&B Firm, to be exact, i will be working under their fine dining chain that usually deals with mid & upper markets (from the interviewer, they deal with government officials, diplomats, high net worth individuals etc..).
Position: Business Development Executive. Job Scopes:
- dealing with events managements, weddings, banquets,
- assist in projects such as Moon Cake Festival (important festival in singapore), F1 Race, etc..
- dealing with media, promotions.

I would really appreciate any input, as this is likely to be the job that will provide substantial amount of volume to my resume when I apply to schools. My area of interest is Marketing. I do not know whether to pursue MBA or just a Masters yet, but I would really like to set it right when I start. I'm also wondering what other things do school look for? Is criteria for Masters admissions less strict? Does speaking a third language (or any other particular skills) something really advantageous?

Much much gratitude,
