Science Student Struggling to make a connect in Business
how we work
Our client, Jasmine, was from South East Asia, and had moved to the US 4 years back to pursue her undergrad in a niche science field, graduating with an impressive score of 3.4 GPA. She further explored job opportunities in this field but found her calling towards the managerial aspect of things, in short, she was determined to switch her field to Business.
The problem in this case lay in her limited exposure to the business field evident through her academic and professional path chosen. Moreover, she scored a 620 on GMAT which weighed her profile down further and made it difficult to show why she would be a good fit for a top MiM school.
- When Jasmine contacted us the biggest confusion she had was if she should retake GMAT.
- Other than that, whether she should go for business management or MS considering her prior experiences and graduate coursework.
- She was also puzzled about school selection.
How we Implemented it
Having discovered the reasons behind all her endeavors, some interesting elements of her profile began to emerge.
We discovered the reason for her interest in the niche sciences field was connected with the aim of discovering means to improve the standard of living in her home country, and she was slowly moving towards this goal and even had an idea of a start-up.
We capitalized on this to showcase her interest in business and give it a strong backing by linking with endeavors she had taken to pursue her long term goal.
Further, she was actively involved in several extra-curricular activities from NGO’s to student bodies, & had spearheaded some activities in the same, via this, we showcased her strong leadership and team skills.
Lastly, we concentrated on how she was able to showcase management aptitude even while working in a core engineering company, by highlighting the teams she led and how she went above and beyond her work responsibilities.
Putting together all these elements of her profile lead us to draft a pitch perfect application!
