Choosing an MBA: Aim as High as You can Reach

Standard

Explore and stay open-minded during the MBA selection process.

đ

The MBA degree has long been considered as a ticket to success, a gilded highway to a high-flying international career and significantly higher income. Achieving these goals is guaranteed by a great variety of MBA programmes, not just a few top-ranked business schools.

Suppose you have set your heart on an MBA programme. You envision yourself climbing the corporate ladder, switching careers or even starting your own business. The MBA can indeed serve as a stepping stone to a bright future in the world of business.

But before all that becomes a reality, you first need to take care of a more pressing task – gaining admission to the programme that is the best match for you. This takes two steps. First, find the programme that offers the teaching and career focus you need. Second, make sure you fully meet the stringent requirements for gaining a seat in the MBA class.

Understanding MBA admission and selectivity

The first logical step after you have decided to pursue an MBA degree is to familiarise yourself with the requirements and the set of documents needed to apply to a typical programme:

  • An MBA application CV/resume
  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent from a recognised college or university. Bear in mind that admissions’ officers will assess your academic background and your academic performance.
  • If you are a non-native English speaker, you need to submit a score from an English proficiency test such as TOEFL and IELTS. Some schools require native English speakers to sit a language test, too. Ensure that you check the language policy of your target business school.
  • GMAT, GRE or other school-specific test scores
  • MBA participants typically have an average of five years of working experience. Yet more important than the length of your professional life is the nature and quality of your achievements. Also, admissions’ officers will be looking for evidence of your leadership potential.
  • Motivation Essay(s)
  • Interview(s)
  • Business schools have increasingly been looking for applicants who possess a certain degree of international awareness and understanding of the complexities of business in an international setting.

Aim as high as you can reach

So, once you make sure you can fully satisfy all these requirements, research the competition that you will face. Thus, you will be able to select programmes with realistic chances of admission that fit your budget or potential to qualify for scholarships.

Many aspirants target only the most prestigious business schools without realising that competition to get there is severe. The average acceptance rate for the top 10 business schools in the US, as ranked by U.S. News, was 15.7% in 2018. The acceptance rate at Stanford is 6.1%, which means that only 6.1% of applicants gain admission. This is very, very selective.

Cost is also a major barrier. Participants in top MBA programmes pay tuition fees in the six-digit US dollar range and you need to ask yourself whether you are able to foot such a bill.

While it is fine to have one or two dream schools, the shortlist of MBA programmes where you will apply should include carefully selected realistic options. Otherwise, why apply if not to get admitted?

Read: How to Select the Right MBA Programme for You and Your Career

How should one measure reputation?

One of the biggest mistakes you could make as an MBA aspirant is to choose a programme based on its position in rankings. Rankings should not be viewed as the most important aspect when picking a school. They are simply one element to consider and you should always research whether they actually matter in the region and industry where you are heading after MBA graduation.

In addition, in order not to be misled, you should take rankings into account only after obtaining a deep understanding of their methodologies and only in cases where they reflect your essential MBA selection criteria. Different rankings employ different methodologies. Since none is conclusive, aspirants need to understand the methodology behind each one before deciding whether what it measurеs is important for them. The Economist’s MBA rankings, for instance, are heavily weighted toward career outcomes. Bloomberg Businessweek ranking, on the other hand, gives priority to compensation.

A much better strategy would be to look at accreditations instead of rankings. Accreditation serves as a stamp of class guaranteeing high MBA quality and academic standards. The top three international MBA accreditation bodies are AACSB, AMBA, and EQUIS. Some programmes are accredited by more than one of these prestigious organisations, the “Triple Crown” accreditation being the most outstanding.

Read: Do Rankings Reflect the Quality of Business Education

Remember that your project should be at the centre of your MBA search. Think about the company or industry you want to work in. It’s useful to examine the career or recruiting reports of MBA programmes to see which one corresponds to your preferences.

Don’t limit your options

Finding the MBA programme that 100% covers your ambitions and preferences is a much better strategy than going for a course just because it’s considered elite.

Sure, that diploma from a top school may turn heads and get you a great starting salary, but studies have shown that salaries of graduates from some mid-tier programmes can grow faster and higher than top programmes over a twenty-year span,” according to Kaplan.

There are numerous examples of successful business people who graduated from business schools that do not top the rankings. Rajiv Bajaj, managing director of the world’s largest autorickshaw maker and India’s second largest motorcycle maker, Bajaj Auto, has a degree from the University of Warwick (UK). Anshu Jain, former co-CEO of Germany’s largest bank, Deutsche Bank, holds an MBA in Finance from the University of Massachusetts Amherst (US).

Instead of focusing on several top schools, it is worth casting a wider net to include schools beyond the tiny list of top-ranked ones. This will boost your chances of finding the MBA programme that suits you best and where you stand a much higher chance of admission and where you will get great value for a much more reasonable sum. The diversity of MBA programmes around the globe has been growing, and so are your chances of taking your career to the next level.

The choice of an MBA programme should include a number of factors, not just the reputation of the school. The more thought you put into the selection of your programme, the more likely are you to steer your career in the desired direction. Why limit your options in advance? Explore and stay open-minded during the MBA selection process. Then your best options will really illuminate themselves.

The Dos and Don’ts of Resume Editing

Standard

Marketing for Startups(7)

Usually, practice makes perfect, but in the case of resume writing, meticulous editing and fine-tuning are what’ll lead you to the perfect resume. However, keep in mind that refining your resume requires a very unique set of lenses to be able to see its flaws and imperfections. With so many contradictory guidelines and common misconceptions about what makes a job-winning resume, it’s hard to know for sure what to change or where to even begin.

To demystify some of the ambiguities surrounding the resume editing process, here’s a hand-picked list of some of the most important dos and don’ts to be aware of during this stage.

The Dos

Do list your most impressive and relevant achievements first

While you might have jotted down the different sections of your resume in whatever order they happened to pop into your mind,this is not always optimal. Instead, you want to move your most impressive accomplishments to the top of your resume. That way, your resume will make a great first impression as soon as the hiring manager begins reading it.

Do optimize for applicant tracking systems

No matter how good your resume looks to the human eye, it might still have trouble getting past applicant tracking systems. These resume robots are used by large organizations (and sometimes small ones too) to weed out unqualified candidates during the initial hiring process. They work by scoring your resume based on how well it matches the job description and meets the predefined requirements.

Some common tactics to get past these robots include incorporating the appropriate keywords, formatting your resume properly, and utilizing standardized resume headers.

Do include soft skills

You might have forgotten to include them in your initial draft, but they’re important to mention. Soft skills refer to the intangible assets that employers look in candidates, such as communication skills, problem-solving prowess, and teamwork ability. While you shouldn’t list these soft skills in your “Skills” section, the bullet points on your resume should be written in a manner that implies that you possess them.

Do tailor your resume for different jobs

Resume editing isn’t a one and done deal. In fact, often times you’ll need more than one resume at your disposal so you can submit the most appropriate one to the job you’re applying for. This is why professional resume writers often craft multiple resumes for a single client.

For example, suppose that you’ve had working experience in both finance and accounting, but you’re currently applying for a job that is strictly finance. You’ll definitely make a stronger impression and appear to be a better fit by emphasizing your finance-related accomplishments while downplaying your accounting experience on the resume you submit.

Do try getting your resume to fit exactly one page

With your initial draft, your resume is usually never exactly one page in length. While you might read from other online sources that this is all fine and dandy, I always suggest that job seekers make the extra effort to get their resume to fit on one full page unless they have over 15 years of work experience. After all, why take the unnecessary risk of irritating a hiring manager who’s fussy about resume length.

Admittedly, sometimes it’s hard to get it just right. Maybe you’re having trouble filling the page up because you have little to no work experience. If you haven’t already, consider adding in the names of the most impressive courses you’ve taken in school, or perhaps include a summary or objective statement at the top.

The Don’ts

Dont mention the obvious

While it’s great to have the mindset of leaving no stone unturned, everyone already assumes you have experience with Microsoft Word and Outlook. There’s also no point in mentioning that you know English if it’s obvious that you’ve worked in an English-speaking country your entire life. Instead, save your precious resume real estate for more technical skills that are far more impressive.

If you do know a second language though, be sure to mention it, as it’s currently a very sought-after talent that companies love.

Dont get overly fancy with pictures and colors

Unless you’re in an industry like fashion or graphic design that openly encourages resumes with unique and aesthetically pleasing layouts, it’s almost always better to stick with a basic resume template.

This is true for a number of reasons. For one, hiring managers are used to seeing standard resume formats. They don’t want to spend extra time getting accustomed to your unique layout. To be quite frank, some hiring managers won’t even bother reading resumes that aren’t formatted according to industry standards. They assume the resume is all style and no substance.

On top of that, let’s not forget that resumes need to appease the resume robots. As you might expect, robots are heartless and they don’t care for pretty colors or aesthetics. In fact, they might have trouble processing your resume, and this could severely hurt your chances of moving past the first stage of the hiring process.

Don’t use weak action verbs

You didn’t “help lead” a group initiative. You “spearheaded” one. Always look to use stronger and more impressive power verbs at the beginning of your bullet points, while avoiding weaker ones like “help” or “assisted.”

Dont be inconsistent

I see this all the time. The resume begins every one of its bullet points with a verb, but then suddenly, out of nowhere, one lone bullet point decides it’s perfectly fine to start itself off with a noun. While it may seem like no big deal, some recruiters can get really ticked off by this inconsistency and conclude that you’re not a detail-oriented job candidate. Just remember to keep things consistent – it’s not hard if you look out for it!

Dont forget to ask someone to proofread

It’s great that you took the time to edit and refine your resume. Now let your friends and family members help as well. If even professional writers and authors have editors to proofread and make changes to their works, then you should too.

It’s easy at times to think that what you wrote makes perfect sense, because after all, you wrote it! But unfortunately, we’re all prone to making some mistakes or suboptimal writing decisions that we simply can’t catch and fix ourselves. So never skip this final step – it might just be the most important one!

5 Tips To Edit Your Resume Like An Expert!

Standard

Marketing for Startups(6)

The last few years have seen the evolution of the resume. So much so that job seekers now hire professional resume writers to write or edit their documents.

A resume is no longer a list that collates your professional experience and responsibilities. It has been reinvented as a smartly crafted marketing pitch, created with the singular aim of selling you as a candidate to prospective employers.

How does a professionally edited resume differ from its unedited counterpart? An editor approaches the document from the point of view of an outsider — usually an employer. This way, he knows instinctively which parts to embellish and which to leave out. With the deadwood out of the way, your resume appears more polished and focused.

Resume writing may be a specialized skill but it can be learnt. Give your resume a professional edge by following these tips:

Focus on your achievements
Employers are mainly interested in one thing — the value you can bring to a company. Your resume must address this question in detail. Don’t emphasize only your roles and responsibilities; focus on your accomplishments instead. You want to tell the company what you can do for them by citing examples of what you have achieved for your employers in the past.

Create a sales pitch
Gone are the days when a resume was a laundry list of your career and responsibilities. Resumes these days are aggressive sales pitches intended to grab the reader’s attention and convince him or her that you are the best fit for the job. Think like a marketing person and adopt creative strategies to make your career look good. Your resume is like a display in a shop window. Showcase only the best. Change the slant or perspective of what you want to say to make it more appealing and word each entry carefully to elicit the best response. Be careful not to stray from facts at any point.

Weed out all extra information
Keep chipping away at all the extra details until you get a focused document that’s relevant to the job and company you are applying to. Hiring managers spend only a few seconds on each resume so supplying extra information may sometimes lead to employers reading only those bits and missing out the more relevant parts.

Use action verbs
Using action verbs such as administered, analyzed, delegated, controlled, addressed and exceeded add dynamism to your resume and tend to catch the reader’s eye. Use action verbs liberally – and appropriately – to make your resume compelling.

Grammar and consistency
This is the easiest part to address and the most important. There can’t be bigger eyesores than spelling, grammar and punctuation errors in a resume. Be absolutely sure there are no language errors and keep the style consistent. If you write 25 December in one sentence and December 25 in another, you may be marked as either lazy or careless.

In today’s competitive job market, garnering the attention of hiring managers is a must. That’s where the resume comes in. A well-crafted document that provides relevant information to employers puts you one step closer to the job you seek. Edit your resume like a pro. Begin by looking at your resume with a fresh unbiased eye – preferably that of your prospective employer – and work out a sales pitch that sells you. Cull unnecessary information to put forth a focused document – one that makes you appear to be the perfect fit for the job.

How to Update Your Resume in 5 Easy Steps

Standard

Marketing for Startups(8)

If you’ve lost patience with your current boss or you’ve lost interest in your current job (for any reason), you may be thinking about stepping back onto the job market. In this case, leaving your current employer will be your own decision, and you’ll be able to make the transition on your own timeline. But not every exit from the workplace happens in such an organized and predictable way. More often, the transition from employment to job search comes as a surprise, and the faster you can find and revise your existing resume file, the faster you can get your job search underway and get back on your feet.

How often do you need to update your resume?

Always update your resume when you start a new job (to keep it current). Even if you’ve been in the same job for several years, updating your resume annually is a good idea. Your responsibilities may have changed, or you may have taken a class or gotten a certification. Your resume should reflect these changes.

How do you edit your resume?

Instead of rewriting your resume from the ground up, follow these five simple steps and update the file you already have (full details below).

  1. Change your visual style
  2. Revise your summary
  3. Add to your education section
  4. Update your work history
  5. Update your skills
  1. Change your visual style

Give your resume a style makeover. You can reuse some of the text you’ve already written, but now is a great time to develop a new layout and a new template. Explore the style and presentation options on LiveCareer and choose a font, color palette, and visual theme that fits with your personal brand. Remember that simple style elements are usually more effective than complicated ones, and your colors and font styles should be limited to two or three. Watch out for fancy elements that might confuse resume scanners, and don’t include images or photos.

2. Revise your summary

No matter what you were looking for during your last job search, you’re probably not in an identical state of mind this time around. People change and grow as time goes by, and career ambitions shift and evolve. Make sure your recent growth is reflected in your new resume summary. If you were looking for a mid-level position the last time you struck off in search of work, now may be the time to start reaching for senior roles and pitching your readiness to lead and manage others. As always, state your ambitions and expectations briefly and clearly, and focus on what you have to offer, not just what you want.

People change and grow as time goes by, and career ambitions shift and evolve. Make sure your recent growth is reflected in your new resume summary.

3. Add to your education section

You previous degrees and training qualifications will stay the same, but you’ll want to add any new courses you’ve taken or certifications you’ve earned since your last stint on the market. If you have lots to add, go back to your earlier qualifications and remove the following:

1.) Your high school diploma
2.) your college and high school GPAs
3) Training courses and certifications that don’t apply to your current job or industry.

4. Update your work history

Since you now have more experience than you did when you drafted this earlier version, you’ll need to tighten the summary of your entire career timeline. Add your most position title, your employer’s name, and a bulleted list of your most important accomplishments in this role. Then move down your list of past positions and remove at least one former job that holds minimal relevance to your current goals.

5. Update your skills

Have you increased your proficiency levels with specific software applications? Have you moved from basic competency to “expert levels”? Have you added new skills to your repertoire that you couldn’t claim in the past? Make sure each of these are represented before you re-launch your search.

Editing Essays? Easy!

Standard

Marketing for Startups(5)

Essay editing is a common thing when you are involved in the academic life and are overwhelmed with papers on different subjects including literature classes, language classes, psychology classes etc. A lot of websites are full of tips to help you achieve your goal. Every time you are faced with the task to edit your essay remember to have narrative essay checklist. It will help you to avoid common mistakes and not to forget essential points.

What is Essay Editing?

Editing is basically a process of preparing any written, audible, visual content for the readers by remaking it, deleting some parts, etc. The modifications involved in editing may be the following ones: correction, structuring, condensation and many others. The result is a completed, comprehensible, accurate text for perception.

Editing process is a two-tier one.

It is a cooperation between the author and editor. Important things for an online paper editor are general style of articles and its main purpose – what author wants to evoke into the reader’s mind and imagination.

You may do your edit from different perspectives. You can correct grammar, stylistic, spelling mistakes as well as make the structure more coherent and language more vivid and understandable. Topic sentences and main argument always need revision because they are the foremost hooks for the audience.

How to Edit an Essay: Basic Steps

  1. Skim through the essay in a swift manner and identify some conspicuous mistakes that a common reader may notice. Reiteration, grammar, spelling, and syntactic mistakes are not hard to detect.
  2. The second step would be searching for stylistic mistakes. General style depends on its type. The literary paper may have a more elevated style that includes sophisticated language and rigorous structure pattern. The paper on a free topic sometimes tends to be less restricted which means you are free to add some colloquial phrases but not a lot. Persuasive essay would encompass a wide range of persuasive devices like rhetorical tropes and figures of speech, rhetoric questions, addresses to the audience, at times statistical data and the scientific outcomes in order to persuade the reader to your point of view.
  3. Take breaks between revision sections. You need to evaluate your work from the distance in order not to be too prejudiced.
  4. Next, take care of the structure. It usually encompasses three core parts. Transition between paragraphs should be smooth and coherent – reader should easily follow the thought. To make everything clear, use cohesive devices like substitution, ellipsis, omission, introductory phrases etc.
  5. Proofread, again and again, to make a paper a perfect piece of writing. If you still need essay help, give your paper to somebody else to have a cursory glance. It happens quite often when after a thorough work somebody else detect several minor errors but still errors!

Typical Mistakes While Editing Papers

The main mistake is when you add your own style and point of view to the essay that is not yours! Skipping grammar and spelling mistakes while trying to make the style perfect. Being too meticulous and deleting the whole paragraphs or sentences that are important to an understanding of the main idea! In addition, find some practice worksheets to practice!

Good luck with you papers and do not forget to have your own checklist that will help you to create a fully-fledged paper!
