So here's the deal. I just graduated from a not great MBA program in December. I've just started to really wade into the job search. What are your best job searching tips?

I'm thinking of getting in contact with as many local recruiters as possible in addition to applying to anything I'm remotely interested in online. I'm trying to average 10 applications per day.

Your thoughts?

you are fucked. if you didn't have a job already aligned, your chances are slim to none. that's why internships are for.

try mcdonals, or costco.

MBA is worthless unless your employer encouraged you to go to get promoted and will pay for it if you come back to them.
>>
Did you do any internship or part time jobs before?
>If no, take any job you can and keep applying until you find a job better suited to your qualifications. Take in priority the jobs using any kind of ERP or software.
>If yes, and you still can't find anything increase the area of research (or see above).

not so, there's lots of MBA internship programs that aren't particularly competitive at most large firms

but if you didn't bother with any of those then gg

>not doing internship while in school

Go back to your school and find what kind of resources they have for career placement. Maybe there are some alumni they can put you in contact with or they can alert you to recruiting opportunities at your school. You need to make a personal connection with someone at the company you want to work at. You will get zero call backs just applying for things online if you are applying for jobs that are actually good. The people who get these good jobs have had someone who works at the company tell HR to move their resume to the top of the stack.

You got a MBA before planning a career...?

The fuck dude?

as an economics undergrad, would you guys recommend pursuing a master's in economics over an mba? specialize or diversify?
>>

I think an MBA would be more in demand, however you should really find a job first. Just having an MBA or other Master's doesn't mean you'll find a job. Get some experience and preferably find a job that will pay for you to go get your MBA or whatever.

Learn SQL, Tableau, SAS, R, etc. on your own time.

An econ major who knows his way around a database will make 20-30k more. You don't even need a formal education to back it up.

t. I did this and make way more now.

I do believe a PhD in Economics was called the best overall degree by Forbes, that + >>1742264
= fucking yooge stacks of cash. But yeah, hope you like math.

You get an MBA when your company wants you to move into management, not before you have your first job.

This is the truth. I would apply for 100 jobs per month and would be lucky enough to get 1 interview/month. Then, I'd go to them, and they'd pretty much ask "are you the internal candidate?" "No" "okay know anyone in the company?" "No". "Hahaha oh look, this is the one who *applied online*!" You get treated like trash when you apply online.

Sorry to highjack OP's thread, but I currently do management in retail and got promoted pretty rapidly. However I only make 41k and I'm not sure how to find a regular office cuck job that pays that much without experience, any advice or routes?

Be a broker. Really easy to do.

Apply less, apply better. Ihad an interview only when I rewrite my cover letter from the begiinning for any single vacancy
