Career changes can be daunting, but can also be rewarding. There’s no law committing you to your career field for the rest of your life and if you’re not happy doing what you’re doing, it’s probably time to make a change to one of the many other career paths out there. Jumping from one field to another can be overwhelming and difficult, but luckily, there are resources out there to help facilitate your transition. When your professional life hits a brick wall, an MBA may be the tool you need to dig your way through.
Most MBA applicants are seeking a career change of some kind. The most obvious factor in an MBA’s appeal to individuals wishing for a career change is the knowledge it offers. It would be unwise to begin applying for jobs in a foreign frontier with only experience in your former occupation, even if it is somewhat related. An MBA will help you develop the skills, expertise and know how necessary to thrive on your new career path, while the time you’ve put into readying yourself will prove to potential employers that you’re serious about learning the ropes in future MBA jobs.
MBA jobs and networking
Career switchers are also drawn to the valuable networks embedded in MBA programs. It is wise to dedicate a fair portion of your time as an MBA student networking with students, professors and alumni. Forming bonds and acquainting yourself with both future and current players in your desired field may offer you the leg up you need to slide into a new career. Many business schools also help you with your networking by arranging trips to companies in your desired industry, during which you can learn about the business and MBA jobs on offer as well as interact with employees and make valuable contacts.
Another aspect of the MBA that can help with your career swap is the MBA internship each student is expected to complete over his or her summer break. Most programs assist their students in finding intern positions by hosting recruiter events or reserving MBA internships with various companies. This often built-in feature of the MBA will provide you with the experience you need in your desired field as well as a chance for a possible career in the company once you’ve earned your MBA. Many companies give priority to their pool of former interns when hiring new employees, so making a good impression during your MBA internship can go a long way.
