TWO YEAR VETERAN REFLECTION

Submitted by Benjamin Feldman, U.S. Army Veteran and Two Year 2016 alumnus. Co-President of Goizueta Veterans Club 2015-16. I’ve just finished my 2nd year, full-time MBA at Goizueta, and previously I was an active duty, U.S. Army infantry officer for 7 years.   For many reasons this past  semester was a great one, but the biggest reason was that I decided to accept my full-time offer from Citigroup here in Atlanta, and so my wife Alison and I are very excited to settle down here in the city. I had a great internship experience with Citi this past summer, and...

THE TWO-YEAR PROGRAM: STEWART’S EXPERIENCE

From Stewart Winslow, Marine Veteran, Two-Year MBA 2016: What began two years ago is now about to conclude in less than one semester.  That journey which started with the miserable balancing act of managing responsibilities at 1st Marine Division Headquarters while studying for the GMAT/GRE, while researching multiple MBA programs, while standing overnight posts is actually about to end.  It has flown by.  Similar to the stresses of military schools, training programs and deployments, the Emory full-time MBA program has been a series of stressful deadlines, crunch times, and “times to prove yourself”.  What a lot of people do not realize...

One-Year At Goizueta: Brett Patterson – How To Lose A Job Offer In 5 Easy Steps

Editorial Note: This post is satirical.  To successfully secure a job offer, please do the opposite of what is described below. Recruiting season is upon us!  One by one companies are coming to campus for company presentations, networking events, and on-campus interviews.  They are scooping up candidates left and right.  Some of my classmates have been missing for days, being kidnapped and flown to cities around the country for final round interviews.  This recruiting is demanding, time consuming, and should be avoided at all costs.  With 98% of Goizueta students receiving an employment offer within three months of graduation,...

Yes, the Summer is over. So, what next? In the coming semester, the academic rigor of our electives won’t dilute and the recruiting season will be in full bloom. Networking efforts are ramping up. This blog might make it look like I am looking for a job at a Career Management Center of a business school. Even though I do not want to sound preachy, I still want to share some of my most important learnings with anyone and everyone who is serious about securing an on-campus job offer in an organization that interests the student and provides her the launch pad for...

CAREER CONNECTIONS SERIES : DJ SINGLETERRY – Looking Back on GCC

CAREER CONNECTIONS SERIES : DJ SINGLETERRY – Looking Back on GCC

The Goizueta Career Connection was a great experience. Going into it, I was not entirely sure what to expect in regards to interactions and conversations with recruiters/alumni. I think the atmosphere created by the small breakout groups; high percentage of GBS alum by attending firms as well as structured preparation, led through the CMC throughout our Professional Development coursework, all positioned my peers and I for success during the event. It all began with the atmosphere. Students were broken into small groups of 5 or 6 and then rotated around to small tables with typically 2 people from each...

CAREER CONNECTIONS SERIES : MARK THOMAS – The Goizueta Career Connection Event

CAREER CONNECTIONS SERIES : MARK THOMAS – The Goizueta Career Connection Event

Prior to the Goizueta Career Connection—our first foray into the world of formal recruiting—my approach to these events was to keep my head down and hope any faux pas committed went unobserved. I’m proud to report that not only did I survive and get a few free drinks (possibly correlated), but I’m emboldened by the event as I stare down the rest of the recruiting process. To give everyone a better idea of how it helped me, I’ve provided a brief recap of the event. We spent the first half of the evening rotating through a series of structured...

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: ERIN NUSBAUM REHM – Before Holiday Season, there is Recruiting Season

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: ERIN NUSBAUM REHM – Before Holiday Season, there is Recruiting Season

Well, friends, we are officially in full-tilt recruiting season! Company representatives (and usually some alumni) are visiting our little corner of the world to show what their companies have to offer and what kinds of jobs they have available. These presentations are usually followed by a day of interviews for the afore-mentioned job opportunities.  Doing the math with my hp12c calculator (that I bought for school and now use as a paperweight), I have calculated that ambitious students can have up to 10 interviews a week! Most don’t, but there is a buzz around campus about who is interviewing...
