Although I haven't made much progress on the before school TODO list, I decided tonight was the night I would take the CareerLeader.com assessment tests.

According to the CareerLeader site, here's the purpose:

CareerLeader is an integrated approach to business career self-assessment. Developed by Drs. Timothy Butler (Director of Career Development Programs at the Harvard Business School) and James Waldroop of Peregrine Partners, CareerLeader is used by over 260 top business schools and corporations worldwide to help guide their students' and employees' careers.

After about an hour of answering questions about what kinds of jobs I would like, what kind of environments I like to work in, and what kinds of rewards do I find...rewarding(?) the system developed a bunch of reports and opinions about me.

Interestingly, it seemed to have me pegged for someone who would enjoy general management and entrepreneurship. I would say both of those functional areas are certainly of interest to me, so maybe this tool knows what it is talking about!

The best thing about it, however, is that there is a venue for anonymous 360 degree feedback so you can have current and former coworkers come in and rate you anonymously. This is an area that unfortunately I haven't had the chance to participate in thus far in my career. I picked a good mix of people who report to me, my boss, and those who I work with but are not in my reporting structure. Once four or more people respond, I will get to see the 360 degree feedback. I'm looking forward to it!

I chose J-term as a reapplicant. I applied to a bunch of places the first time around (seeking Sept 06 entry) but didn't get in anywhere. Reapplying to CBS J-term made the most sense as a) I could stay in NYC, keep same apt, not have to uproot myself and my wife b) I would graduate in May 08 -- same time as if I had started in Sept and c) good fit for me -- strong in finance and entrepreneurship.

Is it possible to get the employment list for J-Term folks only. I would like to know how many people from J-term were hired in Mckinsey. My impression is that J-term recruitment is much weaker than full term. Is that true?

You'd have to ask the career services office for that info. The J-term folks get recruited along with all the other folks at the school at the same time so there really is no difference from what I can see. Only thing is that if you are j-term you aren't able to do a summer internship (helpful if you want to career switch) since you're in school for the summer semester.

Hello there,

I plan to apply for Jan 2008 intake. I live in Ohio and plan to fly back to Ohio at least 2-3 times a month to meet my wife over the weekends.

My question is that Do you think it is practical time wise to travel to Ohio every other weekend.

Do you have classes on Friday?
