New MBA graduates should focus on networking with alumni and highlight their skills and experience to land a job, advises Scott Shrum, the director of MBA Admissions Research at Veritas Prep. Find alumni working in fields of interest and get to know them, Shrum and other experts suggest. In addition, resumes must also feature experience, not just a degree, they advise. "An MBA helps to highlight your strengths and fill in some knowledge gaps, but there is never a substitute for great, relevant work experience and a track record of professional success," Shrum notes.
