Wendy Tsung, Associate Dean of MBA Career Services at Emory University

“Speak with people in your aspirational roles to better understand the skills required and the different career paths to that role. Inventory your skills to see what gaps exist and be prepared to address. Use the knowledge gained through your conversations to highlight key skills and identify different channels to achieve your career goal. Reach out to your alma mater’s alumni career center for career support and your alumni network for contacts. Share your interests with as many people as possible since you never know who might be in a position to help.”
