Hi,

I wanted to get my profile evaluated for ISB/Kelly/TAMU Mays.
It would very helpful if you can give some insights on my profile.

Name: Rahul Kumar Singh
Degree: B.Tech (SRM University)
Company: KPMG India

10th :71
12th:72.8
CGPA:8.9
GRE:313(Q160,V153)

My work ex would be exactly 4 years by the time I will apply to ISB.
I started working as a database developer in wipro and worked there for 2.5 year and currently I am working with KPMG for last 1 year as Associate Consultant.
In KPMG I am working as a Qlikview developer and manage all the activities of KPMG with the client.
I am the front face of KPMG at the client location having delivered more than 3 projects successfully in the span of 1 year.I have lead the team of 3 people for one of my projects in developing the dashboard for financial data control team of the client.

I have won two awards one in wipro for the automation work I did to streamline the process and one in KPMG.

I was a part of two r&d projects in my college and also organised many events in the college.

Completed one course from Coursera for Strategic Management from IIM B and also planning to complete the Operations Management course from IIMB.

What I learned from Wipro?
I learned the technical bend needed to cater to a business problem.

What I am learning from KPMG?
Apart from the technical knowledge I am also developing an understanding of the business of my client which is needed for providing them the accurate technical guidance.

I want to get into consulting again after my MBA thus I am planning to hone my business skill to cater to the clients need in a much better way.

Please let me know if any more information is needed for evaluating the profile above.

Regards,
mbaMission Admissions Consultant

Hi Rahul,

Thanks for reaching out to us. The admissions process is holistic, so thank you for providing your stats and some of your accomplishments too. I think your technical background, plus the client facing exposure you are gaining right now, are a nice combination. Definitely highlight the project management, client relationship management, and any presentations with the client, especially if they have involved client executives. Having a Big Four brand on your resume is a nice plus too.

I think there are two challenges that you should be focusing on: 1) Your GRE score, especially your verbal score, is on the low end. I would retake if possible, especially for the US schools where they want to see strong verbal scores from international applicants. Also perhaps add a Business Communications or Speaking course to your plans. 2) Do you have leadership / activities outside of work that are current? If not, that could be a weakness. You can list college activities but schools prefer to see that you are involved in activities or giving back currently too.

Hope this helps and best of luck!
Kate

Hi again Rahul,

Thanks for the extra info. That's great you've trained others and worked with Director level at the client. The CSR activities will be good to include on your resume too. Even better if you can take on a leadership role within those activities! (If you're still looking for ways to improve your profile).

Thanks,
Kate
