When searching for a new job, it takes significant time and effort to truly understand what motivates and actually find companies and positions that match those criteria. Utilizing the resources available for Smith MBA students and other job search programs was a tremendous help. From scouring MBA Exchange, meeting with our Career Consultant Adam Shpall several times to networking and somewhat stalking contacts on LinkedIn, it takes dedication to find the right position. Although it can seem overwhelming, don’t be defeated. Keep pushing through, and you’ll land the perfect opportunity for you too!
