Hello Sir/Madam,

Please evaluate my profile and give your valuable feedback.

Nationality- Indian
Undergrad- B.Tech. from NIT, Warangal
GMAT Score - 680 ( Q-48, V-35, AWA-5.5, IR-6)
Industry Experience - Energy/Renewable.

Work Exp: I am a 28 years old Male, presently associated with GE as Contract Specialist for Asia Pacific region. My past employer was L&T and MHI. I started my career with selling individual oil and gas/power plant equipment, and then moved on with turbine generator sets to individual EPC contractor ( India/other south Asian countries). Then I spend some time with business development and corporate strategy, where I was involved in discovering sustainable new business prospects as my company was looking for new field to expand its business (post 2013, when the power scenario in India was slowing down). Moving on, for the last 3 years, I am into contract and risk management - finalizing contracts, creating claim strategy, and so on. Total experience of 90 months by Aug/Sept'16.
( I could substantiate all of the above with figures/Order book status in my detailed application resume )

Post-MBA, I would either like to continue with my present organization ( In which case, I may get some sponsorship), or would like to move into Energy consulting.

Volunteer Experience/Extra Curricular:
1. Successfully set up an NGO with my Uncle in 2012 – mainly concentrating in providing education to the underprivileged. The NGO is based in West Bengal, India. My sole responsibilities, more specifically, range from fund raising to fund allocation in required departments, in consultation with the team members.
2. Associated with another NGO, run by a friend, working on providing education to the tribal people in remote locations in India. I have successfully raised funds of more 0.014 million USD. We are also working with them on entrepreneurship skills to make them self-reliant.

Target School: Yale, Fuqua, Rice (because its in Houston), INSEAD ( can arrange a recommendation from an INSEAD Alumni), HEC Paris(can arrange a recommendation from HEC Alumni) St. Gallen, Mannheim, Rotterdam, ESADE(can arrange a recommendation from an ESADE Alumni), HHL Leipzig and IESE. Please suggest any other business schools that fits my profile.

Thanks for sharing.

It is good that you can substantiate with figures, choose the ones that are most impressive, in terms of scale, complexity, or leadership involved. It would also be good to play up international and cross-cultural dimensions of your work. These would help you stand out from the competitive pool of Indian applicants.

Connecting with alumni of your target programs to gain more insights into the school communities and cultures could also help you create compelling essays that would help boost your chances.

All the best!
