MBA News: MIT Grads Consider Alternative Career Paths

The Boston Herald recently reported that graduates from the Sloan School of Management at MIT are adapting to the changing job market. The head of career development at Sloan estimates that 80-85 percent of the class has a job offer at this time, only a 5 percent decrease from last year. What is noteworthy is the type of jobs that students are pursuing. Without offering too many details, the article illustrates that students are shifting away from traditional industries or the latest fad and are instead pursuing personal interests, with one student joining a musical instrument company and another a Chinese start-up. Is it possible that a silver lining might exist in this tough job market – less pressure to conform and pursue banking and consulting jobs?
