Right now I am doing masters in Personnel Management and Industrial Relations. Should I go for SBI PO or opt for the job of HR trainee in a PSU?

I want to get into one of the ivy-league business schools. I think SBI PO would be a good option because the job roles are more diverse and general. I am planning to start my own consultancy (recruitment, training, stress management and soft skills development) along with a job in SBI PO.

Hi all !

After burning my fingers with CAT last year i decided in Jan 2014 that instead of wasting my time CAT i would rather try for the world's top 10 colleges (including, obviously, and especially Harvard). So i started my preparation right away and just 2 days back i gave my GMAT. My score split up is as follows-

Section: Scaled Score

Quants- 49
Verbal: 42
IR: 8

Overall Score : 750

My AWA scores are awaited. Unfortunately my past academics are pretty bad-

10th: 76%
12: 69%
Graduation (B.Tech CSE): 6.4 CGPA.

I have work ex of 2.5 years (as of today) and have been active in a bunch of extra curricular activities ever since i started my job. I am also a weekend volunteer at a famous NGO and have helped my company(a top IT company in India) with their CSR (corporate social responsibility) activities for which i got special recommendation from my company's HR.

I also have 2 L.O.R s- one from my boss at work and one from my NGO.

Now based on all this can anyone tell if i have even the remotest chance of getting into Harvard ? Or should i not apply at all ? Any and all guidance is appreciated !

Experience would still be on the lower side....However, it may be compensated with factors more than 1. ...it may be difficult to elaborate here. You could PM us your details for a discussion on the same.

@jaydevk

Hello, I'm Jaydev currently pursuing my under-graduation, just completed B.Tech 3rd year.



What would be the best possible strategy to get into top-most B-Schools like Harvard, Stanford... ?


I know a minimum work ex is required (varying from 19 months to 2yrs) ....

Would to suggest me to give GMAT in this year itself or should I wait??

Top notch schools require anywhere between 2 to 6 years of experience, so you should aim to take your GMAT once you are 1 year into the Job. Technically GMAT scores are valid for 5 years but it would be great if you take GMAT within 2-3 years period prior to your application. Focus on your post-B.Tech job and profile building for now.
