Let the Games Begin

So the jub hunt is officially on. Two weekends ago I made a trip to NYC for the Asian MBA Career Fair, the first annual in fact. It was a really good practice to get back into the swing of things and telling people my “pitch.” However it definitely was overwhelming to see the enormous amount of attendees, which I think is expected considering the way the job market is. I think (or at least hope) that I had some great conversations but it was a good kick in my butt to remind me not to loose sight of all the effort I need to put forth for my job search. Then tonight I went to a really interesting session from GE to the students about the ECLP (Experienced Commercial Leadership Program) that they are looking to recruit for. It is really inspiring to see so many Smith Alumni as successful graduates of the GE ECLP. There were so many qualified second years (and first years) there so I know the competition will be stiff since Smith is full of lots of intelligent and competent students. I think being positive and having lots of energy throughout the entire job searching proccess is not only the way to survive but crucial to landing a job.
