Prior experience (yay or nay)

Post Mon Oct 09, 2017 2:40 am
Hi all,

Hopefully this is the right area to post.

I scored a 730 in my gmat, but won't be applying until next year. My work experience is 1 year internship at Big 4, then 3 years at the same company after graduation (advisory). I recently joined a large advisory company doing strategy, which I hate....I am thinking of going overseas to Australia from June/July 2018 before commencing an MBA in 2019. Have been promoted within Big 4, and a further promotion moving to the strategy position. Tons of extra curricular things, run own marketing business on side, board member on two large start-up communities in London.

Experience would then look like:
Big 4 (advisory): 2012-2013, Sept 2014-May 2017
Strategy: June 2017 - July 2018
6 month FTC - August 2018 - January 2019
6 month FTC - February 2019 - July 2019

MBA - Sept 2019

I'm worried the sudden jumping around will look bad on my application? Anyone agree/disagree?

Looking at Booth, Harvard, Columbia.

Thanks,
M
