    Hey! I could totally connect to your post above and agree 100% with getting on that brand name early on in ones career. I graduated from a decent University in Philadelphia, as an international student in 2010, probably one of the worst years to graduate with the economy (in addition to the visa hassles I had to face, when almost no one was hiring). I had to get a job within 3 months, or had to return back to my home country and so I decided to join an unconventional German start-up marketing premium energy drinks in the US. It was a catch-22 for me back then! But the team was great and I got the opportunity to work and live in NYC (a dream come true in early 20s! Haha), but when it came to switch jobs, I always felt the need to explain so much more than my friends who were working for say a PWC/Deloitte. Fast forward 6 years since graduation, I still don’t have a ‘brand’ name/logo on my resume, and I always have to do so much more during the ‘So, what do you do?’ question during networking events etc!! I am will be going to Queen’s University in Canada soon to get my MBA, and I am soo determined to have that brand company on my resume, for as long as I can take it! Sorry for the long post, but I could totally get what you were saying, I just had to write. Thanks for penning down your thoughts!

      Hey GettingThere, thanks so much for sharing! It’s good to know that there are others out there facing similar challenges. Getting an MBA is a fantastic way to get your foot in the door at a brand name company, if that’s what you want, so congrats on taking that first step! I wish you all the best in b-school and beyond. 🙂
