10 interactive modules to complete at your own pace
The importance of a career strategy
Module 1 explores the value of having a career strategy, and why this essential if you’re to achieve the level of success you expect following your MBA investment.
Learn what drives you
In Modules 2,3 & 4 you’ll start the process of identifying your key skills, values and interests. Each module is supported by an online exercise that provides step-by-step guidance on how to identify and prioritise this vital information; allowing you to consistently evaluate career options against your unique criteria.
The right environment
Module 5 explores the type of work environment you prefer, and what attributes you need in a manager and colleagues to help you take your career to the next level.
Establishing your long-term goal
Whilst you’re completing your MBA you’ll be engaged in one of the most intense years of your life. In these circumstances it can be difficult to look beyond the end of the course itself, however it’s important to have a vision of your long-term goals in order to ensure your career choices keep you on a path to achieving them. In Module 6, you’ll work on visualizing and defining your long-term goals, and armed with this information you’ll be able to make important strategic decisions throughout your MBA year.
When it comes to pursuing your ideal career and long-term goals, there is usually more than one path you can follow. In Module 7 we’ll introduce you to the Career Farm “Matrix”, a tool designed to pull together all of the criteria you’ve identified in earlier modules. The Matrix will give you a powerful structure for evaluating the different career options you may be considering. This is where you will start to define your career strategy and identify the information you’ll need to find out to build your target list of companies.
Research, research, research
Modules 8 & 9 focus on the three different areas of career research, why each one is important, and how each helps you focus down on what you need to find out. The modules also include advice on how to get meetings with contacts for research, a sample script to use, and suggestions on how to use your MBA project or internship in a strategic way to further your career.
Refining your strategy and avoiding common mistakes
Finally in Module 10 you’ll decide which of the four methods of getting interviews is most appropriate to you. You’ll also learn the common mistakes to avoid during the interview process; drawn from our many years of experience working with MBA students and senior management teams.
