You’ve paid a considerable price for your eMBA in money, time, and effort. Now that you’ve graduated and recovered from the ordeal of earning your new degree, an eMBA that sets you apart from an MBA, you have to make that clear in all your communications with hiring influencers. Use your school’s reputation as additional leverage, too, all while putting that eMBA to work opening up new opportunities for you.
Your eMBA takes you from a functional business perspective and a narrow skill set, such as marketing or supply chain, and transforms you into a leader well versed across all general management functions capable of managing people and business at the next level.
Here are four tips on how to optimize your job search now:
- Rewrite your resume to highlight your new knowledge and experience, using the proper format.
- Use your school’s ranking or prestige to advance your standing as a job candidate wherever possible. You may not be the only candidate with an eMBA.
- Be ready to move, to take advantage of your new opportunities. You qualify for a higher level position now, with companies that span the globe. Especially with a degree from a University with international connections.
- Be aggressive during your job search, research and target companies you’d like to work for and use your eMBA as a carrot to get hiring influencers interested in you.
