@SauteePan- I totally agree. When I used to be a recruiter for a technical staffing firm, I would always spot the professional student resume a mile away. They often had MBA’s and advanced degrees and always wanted to take on project manager positions but they had no working experience.
They would have been more marketable if they had gotten the bachelor’s degree and some experience in the information technology field before getting a master’s in business because in the technology field experience along with certifications is what is marketable.
I had to tell these applicants that despite their advance degree they would have to start at an entry level position, and we really didn’t have too many of those because our clients wanted contractors with experience.
