What does ‘Create the best career opportunity’ mean?

It means that you are not waiting to get the jobs to come to your campus. You are, in fact, utilizing your knowledge, skills and network to uncover opportunities that most MBA students, mistakenly, don’t even look at.

Focusing only on MBA placements is like…

a herd of sheep leaving their stall. There is no fence, only the gate.

You don’t realize that there are opportunities you aren’t even looking at

Off-Campus Placements

Companies looking to fill up vacancies need not always wait till college placements. Nor they might come to campus for one vacancy

Global Consulting and Freelancing

Businesses around the world are eager to work with young Indian MBA talent. This course tells you how to get them to hire you

Digital Entrepreneurship

A side-hustle from your MBA days could turn out to be the start-up of your dreams. Learn how to build a business around you

And, on-campus would just become a by-product of your brilliance and new-found knowledge and digital skills

But, what’s wrong with depending only on MBA placements?

While you may think it to be so, but placement might not be the best outcome that you may get from your MBA.

You could be in a B-school that you didn’t want to be in

which means most of your dream companies and job roles are already beyond your reach through the placements

The economic environment of the country is beyond your control

which means how is the job market in the country that year is going to determine you fate (for e.g., the Pandemic)

Which companies would come to your campus is beyond your control

which means you have to settle for the companies which finally come and assume it to be the best you could have got

Whether you would even get shortlisted for the company of your liking is unpredictable

which means you being a CA doesn’t guarantee you a finance shortlist, and you having relevant experience doesn’t guarantee you a marketing or consulting shortlist

And, needless to say, what happens in the interview may not always be as per your script

which means absolutely nothing about the placements is determined by your own efforts

Moreover, how could placement be the ‘best’ outcome when you have not experienced all the other options?

How to make all of that happen?

You can make this happen when you stop seeing yourself as an MBA student and instead start seeing yourself as a
Practitioner of your knowledge and skills. Five Steps Ahead makes it happen in five steps.
