I'm a senior level communication major and I'm currently having a hard time obtaining an internship. I left a ft entry level credit sales job at a Fortune 500 financial services company ( corporate hq job / not retail or branch. I left after two years experience thinking I could easily find a ft summer internship in marketing. I didn't land one, so now I'm going backwards and looking for a pt. job so I don't deplete all of my savings.

At this point I'm looking into plan b. That is to, forgo an undergrad internship and get another full time job during my last semester to make up for the money I lost from my savings. I will continue to look for internship as my plan a.

I'd like to know, is it feasible to obtain an mba level job post grad school, on the strength of mba internships alone? I plan to jump into mba program immediately after undergrad since I have professional experience. I'm not about to waste my time, if all I can get is a entry level job( i.e. $35k) due to lack of experience. That is what sucks about the business world. A college degree by itself is of no value.

P.S I live in Philly area but I plan to go back home to Florida for my MBA ,as school is less expensive there in general.

I would recommend you not to go ahead with the plan of doing an MBA after your Btech.

Well, even i had a plan of doing the same when i was pursuing my engineering, but realized that its going to be a waste of time and money if would pursue then. But i still haven't given up my plan, I am currently working on getting into a top B school in 2018 after working for about 2+ years.

I would suggest you to do some internships which relates to your Btech and then work for about 3–4 years and then do your MBA. Once you have a about 3 years of experience, good grades in you 10th, 12th and UG and a good GMAT score and some additional experience in management it would be great to do MBA, these factors would increase your chances of getting into top B schools which would help you boost your career.

But never give up, If you really want to do your MBA now its your call, Its just that you would probably have to work very hard to have a great career.
