Kellogg application - job stats [#permalink]

Hi,

I was trying to fill the Kellogg application and I saw that I had to enter the "reason for leaving my previous job". How important is this information? I dont know if it is better to write "personal reasons" or "job dissatisfaction" or "to start a family". The actual reason I had left that company was because I didn't believe in the ethics of the organization anymore, I decided that it is time to take a break and start a family.

I would write that you found you didn't agree with the ethics of the company. That's a lot stronger than the ever ambigious "personal reasons" line.

I agree with Omari, and I'll add that "Started a family" is also a very valid reason. Don't worry about anything like adcomms looking at you like you're not serious about your career. Just the opposite... It will help show an additional dimension of you. And it's a much clearer, more valid reason than writing "personal reasons" in your app!

To be honest, when I read the "ethics" explanation, I partly don't believe it. It sounds like an excuse ofr getting fired or something (I believe you when you say that's not the case). You're proud about starting a family... Tell them!
