Advice for the Early Career Candidate (from Chicago’s Blog)

今回は、U of Chicago, Booth SchoolのAdmissions Blog (Booth Insider)より下記の投稿記事を紹介させていただきます。

MBAを取得するタイミングは個々のキャリア開発事情によるものの、留学に関する相談へお越しになる方々からは、「キャリア的に考えてもそろそろ取得しても良いのでは?」、「それとも早いでしょうか?」等の質問が寄せられます。そうした自らの留学に関する適性時期に関して判断を下すためにも、まずはビジネススクールのカリキュラムを調べてみてはいかがでしょうか?

Carving out the pathway to your future career requires significant self-reflection. Sometimes you need to look back in order to go forward. Think about the building blocks of your career thus far. What are your strengths and how do they align with your interests? How can you remain open to new possibilities and opportunities that you may have never even thought about? And what might those logical next steps look like?
Some of you may be thinking about an MBA– maybe next year, or five years from now. Some of you are what we refer to as an early-career candidate; individuals who have three or fewer years of full-time work experience, including students currently pursuing an undergraduate degree. Whether you’re preparing to graduate from college, new to the workforce, or thinking about an MBA in the future, we wanted to offer some insights on how you can explore immediate growth opportunities that will set you up for future success.

Presentation/Essay Guidelines:

  • Choose the format that works for you. Want to illustrate your response visually? Submit a slide presentation. Like to express yourself with words? Write a traditional essay. Use the format that you feel best captures your response, the Admissions Committee has no preference.
  • Determine your own length. There is no prescribed minimum or maximum length. We trust that you will use your best judgment in determining how long your submission should be, but we recommend that you think strategically about how to best allocate the space.

【MBA 2017年入学用推薦状課題】 Chicago (Booth)

出願締め切り日やエッセイ課題の確認も大切ですが、推薦状課題内容も確認していきましょう。レジュメやエッセイにて述べたコンテンツに信憑性を与える役割を果たすのが推薦状です。
http://www.chicagobooth.edu/programs/full-time/admissions/apply/letters-of-recommendation

Q. How does the applicant’s performance, potential, background, or personal qualities compare to those of other well-qualified individuals in similar roles? Please provide specific examples.

Q.Please describe the most important piece of constructive feedback you have given the applicant. Please detail the circumstances and the applicant’s response.

  • The first letter of recommendation should come from a supervisor. We prefer that you use a current supervisor for this recommendation, although we understand that this may not always be possible. If you are unable to use your current supervisor, please explain the circumstances in the optional essay. Overall, we are seeking objectivity in the letter, and we want to hear from someone who can assess both your strengths and your weaknesses. If you work for a family business or own your own company, please try to secure a letter from a client or outside party who does business with you and can provide an objective assessment of you.
  • The second letter can be professional in nature or come from an individual who has worked with you in an organization, club, or on a volunteer project. These letters can give us a different perspective of your skill sets outside of your professional environment. There is no preference on who supplies your second letter of recommendation; our only guideline is that it should add new and valuable insight to your candidacy.The letter of recommendation form is available electronically through the online application system. Once you access that system, you will be asked to provide the names and email addresses of your recommenders. We will then send them an email that includes the link to the online form that they will have to complete. Chicago Booth does not accept letters of recommendation via mail or fax.
