Over the past few years I have consulted numerous MBAs looking to start tech careers or shift into different roles or companies. I wanted to pass on some thoughts that seemed to resonate across my conversations. I also wanted to share my own job search story as I hope it is helpful to those of you still on the trail.

I am graduating from the Ross Weekend MBA program in a few weeks and I’m happy to report that I made it through in one piece with some of the best experiences, memories, and friendships of my life.  A question that I get all the time is: “How do you juggle everything?” I wish there was an easy answer, but there isn’t.

One of my primary goals coming into business school was to get hands-on experience applying design thinking and innovation strategies to solve problems.  For those unfamiliar with design thinking (or user-centered design), it’s a process for creative problem solving that keeps the end-user of a product or service front and center as problems are defined and solutions are considered.

Three months ago I landed a job at my dream company, Anheuser-Busch InBev. Being a Master of Supply Chain Management student straight out of undergrad, I would have never imagined I’d be offered a leadership role responsible for one of the world’s largest beer productions at such an early age. But, this job did not come easy.

Peer coaches help first-year students foster a great relationship between an experienced Ross student and a first-year Ross student. Freshmen in BA 100 learn that they can come to their coach with questions about anything — from questions related to academics to questions about social life to questions about sporting events at Michigan and everything in between.
