EssaySnark is pleased to announce our new Military MBA microsite, and we’ve got a special guest post today from a successful military candidate who is headed to a Very Good School in a few months. While the advice offered here and the process that this STBBS has to offer are both relevant to BSers of all stripes, we’re making this one available specifically to other vets.
As a transitioning military officer and career-changer, I thought the most challenging essays to write were the career goals essays.
When I started the application process, I wanted an MBA because I knew I wanted a successful “business” career and I thought most high-level executives have one. (I know EssaySnark probably wants to smack me right now…) I only had a very vague idea, though, of what I actually wanted to do post-MBA: Maybe general management and become a CEO? Or an investment banker for the nice bonuses? Or would I be happy with consulting because I like collaboration? How about PE or VC—and what is the difference even? Truthfully, I was hoping an MBA would delay the decision making for two years, so I was a little disappointed when confronted with the career goals essay.
However, as an opportunity for reflection, no essay has been more valuable.
