the impact of financial crisis on MBA

A lot of people asked me how the global crisis affect a MBA. In fact, the impact is much bigger than expected. A lot of companies canceled their campus recruiting, while even companies came are hesitated to give a full-time offer. I heard a lot of consulting firms only hire one or two people in a regional office, which is much fewer than they used to hire. Not to mention banks and private equities. I had lunch with a friend today, and our conclusion is that the MBA job market will not recover quickly even if the economy turns better.

People started talking about how difficult to get a job now, though Stanford MBAs don't usually take the offer from campus recruiting. Entrepreneur career seems more attractive since at least you can start cheap. Luckily, I am on this trek.

one year older

Just celebrated my birthday this week. Time flies. It's already a year since I first came to Stanford. and I've now learned so much.

An old friend came to visit this Saturday. We talked a lot on the Internet in China, and especially social networking website. To me, there's still a lot of potential to explore. Now I have this dilemma if I should stay or go back after the graduation. My heart told me to go back, but there's still a lot of things to learn here. Hope I can get a sure answer very soon.
