Hello again! Anyone got any advise for a graduating MBA student to land a job even internships? I feel like Linkedin isnt doing me any good since im not just focused in a single area of expertise. I really dont care about the pay at this point I JUST NEED TO SURVIVE!!!
Industries im interested in are (in no particular order;
- Product Management
- Data Science
- Data, Cloud &/or Software Engineering
- Business and/or Data Analysis
- Customer Success
Was recently accepted to two competitive courses at the same time, one focused on Product Management with real-life simulations, and the other in AI/ML via Samsung. Not sure if these certifications will lead me to actual jobs in the field but I thought since they're so competitive might as well add their certs to my resume when they're completed.
Even paid for a short entry level IT course to see if i can gain the skills quickly to land a help desk job. As you can see i'm doing A LOT but thats because I dont have the luxury to be picky when i'm unemployed and these bills wont pay themselves 😭.
Sorry for my long rant. Any useful advise and mostly referrals would be helpful! 🙏
I have attached my resume. Any advise on that too would be very helpful. Thank you all!

I appreciate you thank you so much!
A note on Linkedin, I know money might be tight but if you can subscribe to Linkedin Premium for the in mail credits that can be a huge help. When you find a job that you want to apply to message an individual at that company in that role and ask if you can hop on a call for ~15 minutes to ask them about the position because you are interested in it. At the end thank them for their time and ask if there is anybody else who might be able to share more information about the role with the goal of them hopefully referring you to the hiring manager.
You got this! Make sure to carve out time to relax, make sure you have somebody close who you can vent to every once in a while. Won’t be long till you have a great position.
