Hi, I'm 2.5 years out of college currently working in the IT industry as a QA engineer. I plan to join an MBA program 1.5 years from now. I want to know what could be a good intermediate career step for these 1.5 years that'll help me get a consulting job post MBA. Thanks in advance!
Some career options that I've thought about:
IT Business Analyst, QA role on site (international experience), Entry level role in tier 3 consulting firm, Non IT Business/Data Analyst role, Volunteer at consulting NGO
Tier 1 engineering undergrad (Average grades), research publication, international internship, stong analytical orientation (GMAT 750), college leadership, state level sports
