I'm interviewing for a few GM roles, and while some are in industry, others are in the non-profit arena. Is anyone considering a similar path? Aau, have you sold out yet?

LOL. Aau's a total corporate hack now. When she visited a few weeks ago she was using terms like "leveraged" and "buyout" -- and using them correctly -- and she didn't have a hippie t-shirt.

That reminds me...

Always worth bringing that one back out!

In visiting - any of you folk come to NYC, give me a shout. I can find the invisible but omnipotent Johnny x9 if that swings the deal.

In answer to Lepium - I was always going for the worst of the worst as far as not-for-profit interests, and little has changed. Except sub-prime, I suppose.

I always knew you were a lost cause. But I expected more from Aau.

Hey, i missed this post and it was all about ME! How can that be?

But first, a brief word from our sponsors: I AM SO FREAKING GLAD I AM NOT DOING TAXES THIS YEAR!!!

Anyway, I AM going corporate this summer. I think you bottom line freaks sometimes get a few things right, and I am going to steal your knowledge to use it against you in the upcoming war between my kind and yours. I am building an army and you will all be destroyed.

Really, my thought is that I came to b-school to learn about business. I figured I might as well go into business and get my head wet, instead of just my feet. And I think that everyone should at one point work in retail, wait tables, do something in the private sector, and do something in the social sector. It's like learning a foreign language or going on exchange. It's just a good idea.

Lepium, what kind of NP work you thinking about? I just heard a great presentation by a guy from Common Good Ventures, essentially a nonprofit consultancy in Maine...pretty Maine, lovely Maine, all summer....they get MBAs each summer - lots of dukies, but he said they'd had HBS and Wharton as well.

Aau, your plans do make a lot of sense. In my case I'm considering Endeavor and a couple of similar projects in Africa. Basically consulting to entrepreneurs as a means to foster economic development or consulting for social projects. I'll look into Common Good, as well. Thanks for the heads up.

are you on the net impact list? It costs about \$25 a year, but there are lots of NP jobs, and CSR jobs too.

lepium, what are you doing this summer?

And I think I will be in Beantown sometime during the first week of June. Ndhlp is scheduled to do something science-y at some kind of science-y conference. Since I will be in the great northeast for the summer and starting the second week or June, i thought I'd tag along.

You gonna be around?

Lepium,

I was quite interested in Endeavor but they got back to me after I had already accepted an offer. I am sure it will make for an interesting summer if you decide to go with them.

Aau, I´m still fine tuning the job search but it's unlikely I'll be in Boston in June. Last final is May 21st and I'd be travelling somewhere righat after that. I'll let you know if I happen to saty around any longer. Enjoy Beantown, it's a great place to be in the summer.
