As a budding project manager at Delta Air Lines, Joy was rising up their ranks developing digital and e-commerce solutions. But even though Joy had a love for her career and all of the opportunities it offered, there was still something more calling her—and Joy knew she had to hone her business skills to find it.
“I wanted to pursue something that had a broader strategy focus.” Halperin says. “I knew getting an MBA would help round out my business skills and open up some opportunities to make a career pivot, I just didn’t know how.”. With the help of her career coach at Goizueta’s MBA Career Management Center, Joy plotted out her path to a career in business consulting, and crafted a course load that would give her the best chance to find her calling. After applying for a role at The Boston Consulting Group, she reached out to several alumni who were connected to the company, and spoke with them at length about their experiences at the firm. Their insight proved invaluable, both in helping Joy glean more understanding about the position, and in preparing her for the forthcoming interviews.
