Course description

YOMO is the MBA's guide to getting that dream job.

If you've ever wondered...

Can I make my dream job a reality right after the MBA?

How do I show my target company I’ll fit in with their culture?

If I’m not sure which industry or function I want to end up in, how can I demonstrate authentic enthusiasm to recruiters while pursuing multiple recruiting paths?

Don't worry, you're not alone.

We all confront these questions, because we want our careers to matter. We want to do work that's meaningful, we want to achieve success, and we also want to be happy at work.

YOMO helps you master three critical skills that will help you maximize the value of your MBA: self-awareness, communication, and relationships.

After completing YOMO, you'll have charted a realistic, achievable course toward your next career step and your longterm goals. Plus, you'll be equipped with a suite of tools you can carry forward to get more of what you want out of your career.

Best of all, we'll be having fun along the way! Because we believe that work should be fun, and YOMO is no exception. Here's some fun stuff we've got in store:

  • Connect with the rest of your #YOMO classmates in our Career Protocol Slack channel
  • Parachute into our monthly SnackChat conference calls where we'll answer all your career questions
  • And bust a move at our spontaneous #YOMO dance parties (you'll see what we mean, but be sure to bring your dancin' shoes!)

Here's the YOMO curriculum.

Introductory Module: How to be happy at work

You'll find out why it’s critical to connect with emotions, as well as intellect, when you're pitching your fit for a job opportunity to a recruiter. I’ll also share my job search prep checklist and a cool framework for creating a powerful personal introduction to recruiters and networking contacts.

Module 1: What makes you uniquely you?

Session 1: What makes you awesome

I’ll walk you through a simple, step-by-step process to generate a list of your top ten most successful experiences, encompassing every area of your life.

Through this lesson, you’ll begin to build the self-awareness and confidence you need to make the most of your career.

Session 2: What makes you awesome (part 2)

Did you know that confidence comes from knowing who you are? If I asked you right now to give me a detailed account of your top 3 accomplishments, would your answer inspire you?

After taking a close look at your achievements to date, you will be confident that you can add value to any organization and impress in any interview.

Session 3: Your true values

By the end of session 3, beyond knowing what you have achieved, you will understand your deepest held values. This will make it easy for you to convey who you are and what you want. If you’re worried about “impostor syndrome,” this is your remedy!

Module 2: Identifying the right jobs for you

Module two is all about mapping your goals and values to a realistic, achievable action plan and then gaining the tools to execute it.

Session 4: What you want from your career

In this session, I’ll be with you step by step as you contemplate your long term and short term must-haves. By the end of this session, you’ll have defined what you want now and over time and what you want next.

Session 5: Developing your career strategy

Here’s your crash course in post-MBA jobs. By the end, you’ll be knowledgeable about the MBA recruiting landscape and ready to target a few opportunities that are right for you.

Session 6: Making connections!!!

Now I’m going to arm you with all of the tools that you need to get the job that you want. We’ll cover company research, informational interviews, networking, skill-building, and even a little bit of interviewing so that by the time that recruiting comes around, you’re ready.

Hi, I’m Angela!

I have spent decades helping people get what they want: as a teacher (of English as a Second Language and later of the GMAT with Manhattan Prep), as a strategic HR and training manager at KPMG, as a management consultant and recruiting manager at the Boston Consulting Group, and as an MBA admissions consultant with mbaMission.

I've helped thousands and thousands of people

  • Identify their PASSIONS
  • Pursue their GOALS
  • Improve their SELF-AWARENESS
  • And increase their CONFIDENCE

I have advised some of the world’s most important, high impact and high potential individuals, and I've had the honor to hear my clients call me an empathetic philosopher, masterful story coach, expert confidence builder, and even a “guardian angel.”

I got my own MBA from the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business, so I've been in your shoes, and I can't wait to help you find your unique path to career success, impact, and joy.

Please join me for #YOMO!
