TAG A MENTOR TUESDAY ✨

This week's featured Admit.me Fellows Mentor is Tracey Fetherson.

Q: What is one piece of advice you would give to prospective students applying to business school?

A: “Once you have completed all of your test prep, I highly recommend that you think hard about the piece of your life story that compelled you to pursue business school. That piece of your life story should be the thread that surfaces throughout or grounds your entire application."

Q: How has your experience in the military impacted your business career?

A: "During a pivotal moment in my military career, I realized that I wanted to scale the impact that I could have on issues that I was passionate about--namely, the public-private influence on the US education system. The military gave me a phenomenal leadership foundation and a strategic lens to view the world with, and I believe that business acumen will enable me to be a better strategic thinker and advocate for issues I care about."

This week's featured Admit.me Fellow is Priya Srinivasan.

Guided by her passion for veganism, Priya’s dream is to create a more sustainable food system, harnessing the power of business for positive environmental impact. Today, she works in international trade financing at Export Development Canada, helping small businesses grow into new markets. With a finance background, Priya enjoys working with companies in the clean-tech and food and agriculture sectors and hopes to leverage this in her career pivot. She was born in Ottawa, Canada to Indian immigrants and was raised in a very culturally traditional home. Priya started learning Carnatic music at the age of six, and what began as an extracurricular that she was actually embarrassed about, she has now used to develop confidence as a cultural torchbearer in her community and a music teacher. As Priya seeks an MBA to launch her career in food sustainability, she also strives to be a role model for South-Asian girls and women of color hoping to become business leaders. As the first woman in her family to pursue an MBA, Priya is excited to be a Fellow for the support system of other talented, diverse, and inspiring individuals--all on this journey together.

How to Engage with Business Schools Virtually Amid COVID-19

"What was a highly experiential, interactive, and dynamic process seems to have devolved into something static—at best—and virtually nothing at all—at worst. But the truth is that business schools, much like every other organization trying to operate during a pandemic, are shifting in how they engage with their target audience."

Founder Eric Allen talks about how to engage with business schools virtually amid the current pandemic in a recent GMAC article featuring thoughts from Shari Hubert of Duke University's Fuqua School of Business: https://bit.ly/3iEvEQg | Duke's Fuqua School of Business #Admitme #GMAC #Duke #Fuqua

5 TIPS FOR SUCCESS IN A TOP-TIER MBA PROGRAM

1. Establish a long-term career goal:
Having a long-term career goal makes it easier to determine what summer internships and, ultimately, what first post-MBA job to pursue. Many new and exciting job opportunities will come your way, and by taking the time up front to identify your career aspirations, you can focus your efforts on the short-term ones that will matter most later.

2. Benchmark against yourself, not peers:
It is important to benchmark your success based on where you* were at the start of your program. The learning curve of an MBA program is unique to each and every arriving student, so it is critical to appreciate what you learn and how much you grow versus constantly measuring yourself against your peers.

3. Take a holistic approach to academics:
It can be easy to get wrapped up in understanding each and every concept taught in business school. But it's not all about becoming "the expert." It's about acquiring a top-level understanding of key tools and skills that will allow you to identify risks, identify opportunities, ask good questions, and make good recommendations.

4. Step up, take risks:
Take classes that are outside of your comfort zone, attend meetings for clubs that you haven't considered joining, introduce yourself to students you don't know. Push your boundaries both academically and socially. It will expose you to new ideas and ways of thinking, it will help build your network, and it will keep you energized.

5. Continue pursuing your outside relationships:
A lot goes on in every MBA program, but don't forget to maintain relationships with pre-MBA friends and family. If you have a community that supports you and cares about you, allow that to help you maintain perspective and optimism as you face challenging times and celebrate successes along your MBA journey.

This week's featured Admit.me Fellows Mentor is Sebastian Garcia.

Q: What is one piece of advice you would give to prospective students applying to business school?

A: “Show your authentic self in your application. Your essays are an opportunity to convey your motivations, passions, and values (not just your achievements). The admissions committees are looking to bring together a diverse group that will bring unique perspectives to the classroom. Ask yourself: what do I uniquely bring to the table that can enrich the personal and professional experience of my classmates?"

Q: What excites you about being a mentor for the future generations of business leaders?

A: "I would not be here today if it weren’t for teachers, friends, and mentors who took me under their wing and invested in me at various stages of my career. I’m excited to be a mentor because I’m passionate about paying it forward and helping others achieve their goals."

Q: Name one of your most memorable moments from business school.

A: "Planning a trip to Colombia for 200 of my classmates. I loved having the opportunity to show my home country to my peers and experience Colombia through their eyes."

We appreciate you, Sebastian! #AdmitmeFellows #MentoringTheFuture

5 TIPS FOR WORKING FROM HOME

1. Maintain a morning routine:
Having a ritual is one of the most effective productivity tips for working at home. It can help reduce decision fatigue, preserve cognitive bandwidth, and become more efficient and effective. Find your groove, and stick to it.

2. Have a designated workspace:
Every physical space in our lives has associated behaviors. Designate a space where you'll do your work, and design the environment to be one that is conducive to productivity and free of too many distractions.

3. Understand your ebb and flow:
Your motivation will naturally ebb and flow throughout the day. Capitalize on your more productive periods of time; save difficult tasks for when you know you'll be in the right headspace. At slower points, handle easier, more logistical to-dos.

4. Take breaks and remember to eat:
It can be very easy to get caught up in your work and forget to pause. Take moments away from your desk, walking outside or spending time with a roommate, for example. And make sure you factor in a lunch (not just coffee) break.

5. Plan and manage your time:
Spending time figuring out what you'll do during the day can take away from actually doing those things. Try having things planned out beforehand. Be decently flexible with your agenda, but it's equally important to commit to a set of assignments to complete.

This week's featured Admit.me Fellow is Frantzceska Cheron.

Nothing worth having in life comes easy. Growing up, Frantzceska was taught the power of hard work and the importance of perseverance. As a first-generation college graduate and a Haitian immigrant, Frantzceska adapted to the American culture and overcame odds to achieve greatness while maintaining a zest for life. After attaining a degree in Finance, she worked at leading investment banking institutions. She spent a great deal of her professional and undergraduate time working with the underrepresented population, and it was through these experiences that she began to unfold the economic and educational disparities within communities of color. Career-wise, Frantzceska finds extreme importance in discovering opportunities to create sustainable growth in developing countries. An MBA will provide her with a competitive advantage and the ability to pursue careers within the global environment. Frantzceska will have a seat at the table and make contributions as an influential decision maker around the global economy roadmap.

This week's featured Admit.me Fellows Mentor is Michael Hoyos.

Q: What is one piece of advice you would give to prospective students applying to business school?

A: “Once you get to business school, you will feel a little overwhelmed and like you're getting pulled in a million directions--in particular, when it comes to recruiting and career plans. My advice is to stay true to why you decided to go to business school in the first place, and tune out the noise around you. The decisions other people are making for their careers do not apply to you, and only you know what is best for you. Don't feel like you're doing something wrong if you're marching to the beat of your own drum... the world needs more of that!"

Q: What excites you about being a mentor for the future generations of business leaders?

A: "I have had to figure out a lot of things for myself throughout my academic and professional career and always wished I had more guidance from folks who had come before me. It's nice to be able to provide that type of guidance for others now that I am in a position to do so."

We appreciate you, Michael! #AdmitmeFellows #MentoringTheFuture
