Hi,

I will be applying in Round 1 for Business Schools, but i will be changing jobs after I apply owing to my notice period.
Job change from DellEMC (will be 3.5 years by the time i change) to NCR Corporation, Same Industry - IT
Reason for Job Change - Larger Responsibility, which is in line with my short term goals and mid term goals
The new job will start right around round 1 interview timeline
Please advise how should i approach the situation with admissions committees?
How will schools look at this situation?
Could they advise me to join after a year?




Regards
Admissionado

It's definitely tricky to change jobs at this stage of the game. The adcom will worry about your commitment & integrity - in their eyes either 1) you may not be that committed to b-school since you just took a job that you will only be at for ~1 year before school starts OR 2) You were not above board with your new hiring manager since very few managers will hire someone who plans to leave in a year. Generally speaking, it takes about a year for you to start to really make an impact and give back.

The one way around this can be if you say you want to rejoin the new employer immediately following your MBA. Then you can make the argument that you will not be leaving them in the lurch but instead will be coming back, ready to have big impact once armed with the MBA.

If you're not able to do that, I'd say that unfortunately it will have some negative impact on your application & you can expect some concerns from the adcom.
