Are your career goals more than hot air? Photo credit: Austin Ban

Over the past year hundreds of applicants have come to Touch MBA to get profile assessments and find their best fit schools. One of the most common problems I see is weak career goals.

Career goals are important – and necessary – for you to figure out your best fit schools AND to improve your chances of acceptance.

In this episode, I cover 5 ways adcoms evaluate your career goals so you can make yours bulletproof.

  1. Are your career goals defined?
  2. Do your career goals reflect a sense of purpose, passion, meaning, and significance?
  3. Can adcoms connect the dots between your prior skills/experiences and post-MBA goals?
  4. Do you have convincing motivations for pursuing an MBA?
  5. Can you make a rock solid case for pursuing an MBA from the school(s) you are applying to?
