I recently returned from the National Black MBA Association career fair conference and that has left me buzzing with a ton of inspiration and insights. Career fairs can be a goldmine of opportunities for MBA students looking to kickstart their professional journey or advance their existing careers and as an MBA student, attending such events can be a game-changer, but making the most of them requires careful planning, strategies and etiquette.
I may not look like it, but I was born in Moscow, Russia. Celebrating Christmas was one of my family's favorite traditions back then. When we moved back to Vietnam, the atmosphere just wasn't the same without the snow and the cold (very odd reasons), so we just stopped enjoying the occasion altogether.
This year's Thanksgiving was a little bit more special than the other four because this year, I got to spend it with my sister, who is currently working for PwC (I'm a very proud little sister) and my brother, who just started his freshman year (also a very proud older sister). After a long, intense, and very rewarding first semester in the Fisher SMF program, this was a welcome occurrence.
About a month ago, I traveled out of state and traveled through CMH, Columbus's airport. While traveling, I got to spend plenty of time in the Columbus airport, which I had not been to since my visit day last year as a prospective MAcc applicant. It brought back plenty of memories, as my dad and I ventured through this same airport last February when we visited Ohio State and its MAcc program for the first time.
