Needs career help

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by membership [?]

This review is for Purdue Krannert

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2017

Experience during the program

Krannert's biggest downside are their career services, provided the Krannert Professional Development Center. If you are willing to sacrifice your goals and expectations, then you will have no problem finding a job, as the KPDC is very rigid and 'cookie-cutter' in their job advice. Essentially, they will tell you to hammer the pavement, while giving you a rubber hammer. Their ability to provide meaningful and personalized career advice is nonexistent.

The best example I can provide: I've met with my career coach throughout the MBA Program. Recently, I seriously approached her with a unique job suggestion. Rather than helpfully encourage or work through a solution with me, her response was: "Maybe you should go back to what you were doing before you started the program." As with most MBA students, a primary goal is to elevate your job status - not fall backward. This type of feedback is not helpful in any way.
