Working during a full time MBA -- recommendations?

Post Mon Apr 22, 2013 2:32 pm
Suggestions desperately needed. I am starting my full time MBA this fall, and have been saving away for the last two years for tuition and basic living expenses. Unfortunately, over the last year, I had to blow through a lot of the money due to some family and health-related problems.

Now, I am really concerned about living comfortably while I am at school. Does anyone have any ideas for good jobs while you are still enrolled full time in your MBA? My friends recommended bartending since it is a flexible schedule, and decent money, but I really don't want to get into that kind of scene. I want to find something with a flexible schedule and pays decently. Any recommendations from those who have gone through the ranks? I really don't want anything too intensive, since I really want to focus on my studies and getting to know my classmates. Would appreciate any insight and/or recommendation.

As I'm sure you realize that will be tough. One thing you could consider doing is some part time consulting work. I had a number of friends who got part time jobs that looked great on their resume during business school by going around to local companies that they thought sounded interesting and seeing if they could get a semi-internship like experience. Not impossible, but you'll definitely find yourself sacrificing some schoolwork in the process.

Hi th3509,

I whole heartedly agree with EssaySnark on this topic. I strongly advise my clients to avoid working during their MBAs if at all possible. I don't want to restate everything they said so I will throw out one more option should you consider this path.

Tutoring privately or through a specialized company can be a good option. Schedules tend to be flexible and while the number of hours may be low in a week, the overall rate makes it a compelling offer.

I hope this helps and I do absolutely understand your situation. Please give it careful consideration but, either way, I'm sure you'll do wonderfully.

Good luck at Stanford!

Bhavik
