I am currently in sales and planning on applying for business school this fall for 2019 intake. I have been offered an opportunity to do what I am doing now but with 50% raise for a better firm. Should I make the jump of would this hurt me on my application and letters of recommendations?

Hi there - no, since it's a more highly reputable firm and much higher compensation, it would only help your application - the AdCom would understand the reason for the move. Regarding recommendations - you can get both from past companies/supervisors. Just explain briefly in the application why you've chosen to do so (essentially, since you are relatively new to your current role and your past supervisors can speak more closely to your performance/potential).

Hope that helps - best of luck! :)

What if I was in the job I have now for less than a year, but worked at the same firm for 4 years through school. I just want to make sure I don't look like a job hopper.
