Today I registered for Winter term courses. It’s hard to believe that I will only register for classes one more time! Now that I’m in my second year of the PMBA program, I can see the end of my studies drawing near. It’s officially time to switch my focus from internships and informational interviews to job hunting and interview preparation.
While there are still seven more months until graduation, I am feeling the pressure of the real world start to infiltrate my studies. I’m always thinking of how my classwork could be talked about in an interview, shown on a resume, or highlighted on LinkedIn. Networking has also taken on a whole new meaning as I start to think more strategically about the next few months.
While it’s exciting to imagine what will come next, I am already feeling nostalgic. Soon, I won’t be able to see my friends and professors every day. I will miss being immersed in a culture that engenders so much curiosity and critical thinking. However, I look forward to continuing to foster these special relationships and to seeing what everyone does next!
