Hey all,

If you were to leave your job the day you apply to business school, would you mention that you're leaving your job in the application?
Would it be wrong not to mention anything? (technically I'll still be considered an employee when I apply).
And if I don't mention it and get admitted - would that create a problem in the background checks?

Thanks

Imagine - Everything is going fine, you are about to marry the girl, the dates have been decided, and suddenly you mention- HEY- I am thinking of quitting my job :) . Your future with the girl may not get impacted but you will definitely have everyone's attention for sometime.

Last year, one of my applicants quit his job in October( right after the Application submission). He did not even mention it to me till November. A week before his interview, he asked me - "Do I have to update my resume as my latest designation has TILL DATE on the resume?" . That was the time I panicked. Well ! Yes! We did change the date to - TILL October. Technically, he walked into three interviews without a JOB. Two of the interviewers were really chatty ( it was their job :) ) .

SIR- A Strong recommendation- DO NOT QUIT Your job! If you walk into an interview room with a PAST TENSE for the last designation, a lot of people tend to Fixate on your career switch. It is like- You are really handsome but have a Big MOLE on your face. People who are nice would ignore talking about it, but would keep thinking in their mind and make stories. People who are straightforward will get to the point and will ask - HEY! Why did you quit? What happened ?

Don't do this! Wait for your last interview to get over Buddy.
