Getting Closer to My MBA
I only have two more semesters left and I will have officially earned my MBA. What a feeling, what an accomplishment. I will be the first person in my family to achieve a master’s degree. As I start looking at my future, I have begun to interview for positions in Santa Barbara, Portland and Las Vegas. Unfortunately, Santa Barbara did not work out; as they hired an internal candidate; however, I did receive a very nicely written note from one of my interviewers letting me know that I was their first choice for an external candidate. That boosted my confidence, as my self-esteem was run over by a mack truck…
Not too sure about Vegas and my phone interview for Portland is on Wednesday. Keeping my fingers crossed for Portland, the opportunity is an AHHH-MAAAZZING one. For a kid that dropped out of high school because my teachers told me I would never reach any kind of academic success… Here’s to you! Not only will I be getting my masters, I will be graduating with honors (AGAIN).
Shifting careers in the middle of your life seems almost impossible, but I am coming to find that my background and schooling are actually giving me an edge against my competition. I have been blessed to work and be mentored by some of the best executives in this country who provided me with a solid foundation of the world of business.
People always ask me, “What Next? Will you go for your doctorate?” Honestly, I don’t know what is next. If I go for my doctorate it will be definitely be in the field I am most passionate about – Sociology.
