No, I know UVA has a good MBA program but you don't have to have professional experience. It helps but it isn't required.

I know it's not technically required. Just from what I've heard, unless you're a premier student with a great resume coming out, you're better served working for awhile if you want to get into the good MBA programs.

I've kicked around getting an MBA to try to transition my career a little bit, but the opportunity cost is pretty huge. Hard to get out of actuarial work with almost exclusively a numbers background though.

In the process of writing a curriculum vitae and it is so boring. I understand the need, but I highly doubt I would need one.

Do you want to work in academia or medical? If not, probably a waste of time.

*shrug*



Thanks for confirming the stuff I have heard about MBA. My current theory will be use the free tuition on another bachelors just to increase my grades so I can hopefully get into a better MBA program down the road or whatever program I will be looking at. I just accepted a internship at northwestern mutual so if I am still with that company we will see what they suggest.

I absolutely do. I had a chance to take a job in Orlando. Unfortunately, it would have been about a 10K pay cut. I turned it down and now I'm still living in Alabama.

They were pretty much the same. I was currently in an Army internship program that I started in 2009. This would have basically been a different program that started in 2012. Pretty much it would have stalled my career three years, lowered my total earnings for 4 years by about 55K (but my wife would have better earning potential) but it would have been where I wanted to be and probably a job I'd like more. It was also for a slightly larger organization so opportunities for promotion might have been higher.

This is normal, if you aren't one of these people you are one of those obnoxiously lucky people who actually likes their job. I do wish I could go back and kick 14 year old me's ass into gear so I could have done something I like. I at least have the positive of making good money, can't imagine how much it would suck to do something you don't enjoy and get paid like crap for it.

Someone I work with who's more senior than me is apparently looking around trying to change career paths a bit and basically told me wherever they land they'll try to bring me along. Given I'm looking to change career paths as well and it's a bit tricky, this would be ideal.

That's what happens. Build out a network of superiors that love your work and you will never be jobless.

So I work in radio, and I currently work two part-time jobs for one company which owns two radio stations. Both are music.

If I stay in radio, I definitely want to move to sports radio. My friend is pulling some strings at the sports radio station he works at, and it's technically the highest rated local sports station in the US. The only problem is that it is also a part-time job.

So if I get the job, I'll be working 3 different part-time jobs for two different companies, and like 7 different radio stations. Crazy.

I just hope they won't mind as they aren't technically direct competitors of one another.

The unfortunate thing about my current job from that standpoint is almost everyone I work with is extremely risk averse. I see value in taking calculated gambles and the next six months or so is a perfect time for me to do so, but it's just a matter of how I roll the dice.

If this individual ends up leaving that'll make things very easy.
