I'm back

Hello world... it's been a while since my last post. Don't think I have anymore readers, but I'd like to still use this as a forum to reflect on the past 5 years. Let's look at the quick highlights:

1) Tried out investment banking in New York - great experience but no thanks

2) Had a baby girl - I'm a dad!! life changes forever

3) Graduated from Tuck with that coveted MBA - ready to conquer the world

4) Moved to California to work for one of the big 3 consulting firms (McKinsey/BCG/Bain) - started out with a ton of energy... have had my share of ups and downs over the last 3 years

5) Spent 6 months in Tokyo on an internal transfer - awesome experience paid for by the company

6) ... looking forward to the next step

Did I make the right decision to take the $150K plunge? Did I truly accelerate my career? What is consulting really like? Do I see myself staying in consulting? Will talk about all this and more soon. If you're read this, leave me a comment so I know I'm not talking to myself. Till next time.

Yes - some people are still reading. I just checked my news reader after 5 years too :-)

Hope things are well with you!

Thanks a lot. I have read your blog in the past. I am glad I came across this blog again. You are very insightful. Your insights are of great help. Please continue penning your thoughts and reflections.
Kindly share your insights regarding post-MBA career choices based on your own experience, particularly with non-US, Asian students in mind and given the current employment scenario. Wish you good luck.
