Do you find yourself hopeful, maybe even excited these days? Though my inbox is on a perpetual 1-2 week delay (truly working to get it together), things seem to be looking up. Call it cautious optimism, but between the nicer weather, hearing about graduation & post-MBA plans, or perhaps even seeing vaccine rollout numbers (and the thought of carefree dinners and travel), it’s definitely more… upbeat around here. Are you feeling the same? What’s your take on things?
Last week we had a great talk about the MBA & Side Hustle Life with our guests from Harvard, Rice and Wharton. Truly appreciate you joining and keeping the Zoom chat buzzing, as usual. Thank you again to Farah, Lizzie and Saniya, and congrats to our IXORA Apparel giveaway winners, Sidney and Ariana. 🎉
As I mentioned, we’re focused on stacking the calendar, so today you can join our partners at Access MBA to learn about MBA/EMBA programs and, if you like, virtually meet with IE Business School, Esade Business School, Hult International Business School, SDA Bocconi and others. Reach out if you’re attending today and if you want more prospective student events and information.
Are you looking to brush up on your Excel skills or pick up a few new tricks before bschool this fall? Join us Thursday for a 30-minute deep dive on Data Cleaning & Advanced Formatting with Miss Excel. The MBA grad has trained over 300,000 professionals and is sharing with us her tips and techniques for creating powerful and professional spreadsheets. Her brand has exploded across TikTok and Instagram and she recently left her consulting role to pursue Miss Excel full time… so you know we’re definitely going to have to speak with her about her own career journey and building her brand after this deep dive. Send in your Excel questions and we’ll see you on Thursday.
Finally, we have yet another exciting discussion happening next week with two VIP guests on the topic of Workplace Wellness. Will let you scroll down to check it out and sign up, and will share more with you in next week’s note.
Speaking of wellness, some of us are baking more Peloton rides and runs into the calendar, so join us if you can. Taking Alex’s Club Bangers ride tonight at 7:30pm ET and planning a later ride on Tuesday evening. If you want to join more, reply back with your favorite times to ride or run and we’ll get it together. Join #MBAchic.
PSA: If you’re job or internship searching, companies like Aday, Pipeline Equity, Rosetta Digital are hiring – and more are waiting to tap into our growing Resume Bank on MBAchic. Join us if you’re not yet inside.
Whatever lies ahead of you this week, you’ve already got this. Good luck and catch you here next week.
