BOOKMARKED
Just in case anyone was wondering (if at all), I'm still alive, barely. Sorry for the "spam" here, but I figure people can ignore this thread if they don't care. I'm still active on the Berkeley-Haas threads though, haha.

School's been a bit insane since just before spring break. I surely signed up for way too many things this semester. Here's a warning to all of you going into b-school, LISTEN to your 2nd years when they tell you to only participate in leadership for maybe 1-2 clubs and don't take on too many project courses. I didn't listen and now I'm suffering (but loving it at the same time... maybe I'm a masochist? :wink:)

Let's see, I'm taking:
- 3 core classes (Spring B turns out to be the hardest and most time consuming of the 4 core half-semesters, and all of my classmates are barely surviving this half-semester)
- 3 project classes, one consulting project for a foreign client (for our Int'l Biz Dev program), one business plan for our entrepreneurship class, and one independent study paper for a C-level exec at a big gaming company. Everything is due the 2nd week of May, ugh! :shock:
- 2 major leadership roles - Together they take up about 10-20 hours of my time a week
- 2 minor leadership roles - still take up probably 3-5 hours a week
- Job search - each interview is like a 2 full-day market research prep to sound knowledgeable during the interview. I am happy to say that I finally got an offer from both Facebook and LucasArts, and will be working in my dream industry this summer in SF with LucasArts. Woot!

So, hopefully that explains why I haven't been able to keep up with GMATClub and have been MIA (plus my email notifier is not working, weird). I still love you guys and plan to be back to help out this summer!

Drop me a PM if you ever want to reach me quickly, as long as the email notifier works again. :)

BTW, I'm very proud of what all the new leaders of GMATClub have done so far. Keep up the good work!

Kryzak

the title of your thread scared me a bit...after being in a bad car wreck and spending a night in the hospital (where i fortunately had only minor injuries), i now am more sensitive to such things.

congrats on your job offers and i'm happy that you're still alive :)

Aw, Rhyme. Don't put Monkey Island in my mind. I have to find work, and that will consume days.

Congrats, kryzak.

I had the same reaction like peaceyall when I saw that. I was like...hmm I just saw Kryzakk 2 weeks ago..and..errr..what happened?!..

Glad you're actually doing more than ok..... Congratz on your intern !!
I think you'll enjoy Lucas. My friend is spending 1 year in SF office for 'training/intern' purpose in Lucas as well and he likes it a lot (he originally work for their Singapore office). So hopefully you'll find it enjoyable too.

thank you everyone for the good wishes! Wow, Monkey Island, old school is right rhyme! :) I was more of a Loom and Grim Fandango fan back then, haha!

The internship process for tech this year has been a bit crazy, and since I haven't seen a topic written for it in the Career or B-School Life forum (point me to it if I missed it), I'll write up something like what river and rhyme did (for energy and consulting/VC) for technology recruiting in the summer. I'm glad to say that many of my classmates looking for tech has found something that they are excited about.

peaceyall and cul3s, thanks for the note and sorry to scare you like that. I hope nothing like that happens for me or anyone here. peaceyall, was this recent? Glad to see you're ok!

With that, I leave you one of my favorite games of all time:

So many memories guys... I never understood Loom and I think I never managed to copy this one. But Monkey Island 2, Space Quest 5, man did I like these games!

It is like flashback; I am going to try to find an emulator for these tonight :) It is time to have fun again.

Good to see you back Kry and congratulations on your internship! I would definitely be interested in hearing about tech recruiting. I am headed to Anderson in Fall and have heard the same - startups & small tech firms have started posting more internships in the last 3-4 weeks. So, will be looking forward to your post.

Also, can you tell more about your internship function i.e. is it product marketing or buss. development?
