Hi,

I am an Indian female with 10 years of work experience in Energy sector. I am from Project Management background. My GMAT is 690. I am applying to 3 schools in USA - Fisher, W.P Carey ASU & Smeal MBA Penn state .
For my goals I am juggling with 2 options.
1.Option -Supply chain in E-Commerce industry
Issue Faced - Role is quite relevant to the work I do (Transferable Skills) but i donot have strong personal motivation for industry switch. Most of the info is general like fast paced - upcoming in India etc etc. So after 10 years sudden industry switch is not very convincing.

2 Option - Supply chain and manufacturing operations function in consulting industry.
Issue faced = I have client experience and skills relevant to the profile but then I am not from a hard core consulting background. Also writing consulting after 10 years work ex - Is it advisable.

Pls help. I am really stressed out here!
Thanks.

It's a bit too hard to say without more details but I will say that goals are an art form - you want to be as genuine as possible but at the same time you want to name goals that sound credible based on your experience so far. If you don't have a strong motivation to pursue option 1 then that is probably not the best choice. It sounds like there are some issues with option 2 as well but in order to really give you our opinion on that one (or suggest some alternatives!) we'd need to get more info from you. If you'd like to set up a free consultation definitely reach out to Claudia at claudia@admissionado.com & we can get you set up!
