Job Market Improving for Business School Graduates
With all of the bad news about the economy, it is comforting that prospects are improving for at least one group of people-business school graduates. According to the Graduate Management Admission Council, this year's crop of business school graduates are more likely to already have a job offer before graduating than 2010's graduating class. Salaries are also on the rise. Graduate Management Admission Council

For prospective applicants, this means that there is no time like the present to forge ahead into a post-graduate, business-school education. With hiring slumps prevalent across the board for graduates with other professional degrees, this positive change for business school graduates should serve as inspiration for anyone who has ever had a serious interest in getting their MBA. If this upturn is good for hopeful students, it will probably also mean an increase in competition for slots at prominent business schools. This is where the personal statement can be so compelling. Most people seeking entry into an MBA program can boast impressive credentials. Yet in a competitive market and a world where personal interviews are increasingly less common, the personal statement may be the best chance for a student to set themselves apart.

Writing a personal statement is always a good intellectual exercise. It forces the candidate to hone in on their writing skills, but, more importantly, teaches them how to sell themselves. Learning how to spin and put a positive shine on one's capabilities is nowhere more important than the business arena. So for business school hopefuls, now is the time and place to make a move. Using a well-crafted personal statement and a willingness to take a leap could offer a big payout, especially now.
