MBA Salaries: How Much Do Consultants With An MBA Make?

One of the main reasons that people go
get an MBA, is they want to have somebody show them the money! And we’re here today to talk about the MBA salary for consultants. Specifically, if you get an
MBA and you get an offer, how much can you expect to make? First of all, I want to
talk a little bit about our methodology for this. We have the only primary sourced
research, that focuses on getting actual content from people that are in the
field. And we get hundreds, sometimes even topping a thousand responses, from folks
that are going into multiple firms after graduation. We can verify their base,
their bonus, their “relo” [relocation], their 401k match, everything that is involved with your
compensation after graduation at the MBA level. And this is really exciting
because there’s so much that goes into deciding whether you want to pursue a
job in consulting, there’s a lot of case interview
preparation, there’s resumes and cover letters that need to be absolutely
perfect and pristine. And so sometimes when people are thinking about, should I
invest in this or not, it’s really helpful to know, from the source,
how much firms are paying and why. The second thing that’s helpful to
understand, is why consulting firms change what they pay, and when they make those changes. Consulting firms usually do compensation reviews, right before the
offer process. So for example, for MBAs during the internship, they will make a
comp review, between when they give out the interviews and when they are about
to prep for the interview process- usually in December or January. But
before they give out offers. And if they’re going to escalate what they’re
going to offer, they’ll usually do that review and then make that public in the
offer process. For full-time, because that happens at the beginning of the year,
usually they make that comp review just before the end of the MBA interns, that
are in office. Because when they hand out offers to return, they’re gonna want to
make them on the next year’s salary. So for MBA interns, it’s
December & January when they make their changes. And for full-time MBAs, it’s in
the summer, usually in July they make their changes for the upcoming year. So
in 2018, they would assess for 2019, and 2019 they will assess for 2020. 2020 they
would assess for 2021 and so forth. MBA consulting salaries are a big hot
topic, and we are here to pull back the curtain on what you actually make. You
can read about all of this on a report online. But just at a high-level, it’s
good to throw out some numbers, right? MBAs at MBB firms, which are the targets
for many folks that go into consulting, are about $165,000 base. And
that has jumped recently because firms are facing increased pressure from
internal strategy groups, which offer a similar programatic benefit, the
ability to work on different projects with X consulting staff, but the ability
to stay home. And with tech, which offers a fast-paced escalation in pay, some
equity compensation, the ability to have free lunch on campus, and also the
ability to stay home. So $165K base which has escalated in their competition, versus
tech and internal strategy. About a $150K at Big 4 firms, and about a $140K at boutiques. One of the notable exceptions to this is that LEK is a boutique firm, but they pay the same
rates that MBB does. So overall if you are thinking about getting your MBA and
you want to know what will be my MBA salary for a consulting. We’ve laid it
out here. We lay it out by firm, by office, in even more detail on our website at If you like this content follow us on social, and

Good News 😄 A Study Plan that Works

If you’re not learning English as quickly as you would like to or if you feel like your Fluency is stuck at the same level then It is partly because of your study routine in this English lesson I am going to share with you how to improve your study routine to Facilitate your English learning so that you can learn English easier and much faster The best thing is that it’s actually enjoyable to have a good study routine and it’s free Creating a good study routine doesn’t cost anything So follow my advice if you’d like to improve your English speaking skills. I’m going to share my own suggestions for your English study routine I’m going to share a special formula that I’ve created for my own study routine and what a study routine should be and should not be if you’d like to learn more with me in the complete go natural English course for Fluency and confidence in English. The wait list to join is now open. You can join the waitlist at Pre-reg you’ll get information about the benefits of the course and a notification when registration opens now Let’s talk about your study routine. What’s really interesting is that study routines are? Really not talked about in most English classes or any kind of classes at all Yet they are so critically important to successfully learning any subject So this is a very important thing to master a study routine Means time that you set aside to study Consistently a routine means something that you do over and over so it’s not a one-and-done Activity a study routine could refer to how you study by the hour The day by the week the month the year, but hopefully you’re studying more than once a year So we’re gonna talk more about how to develop your daily study routine It’s proven to be more effective to study a little bit Every day than to cram once a week or before a big event The idea is to make your routine consistent over time so that it becomes a habit Something that is easy and automatic for you something that becomes part of your lifestyle Let’s talk about what a good study routine is and is not you might think that a study routine is painful and boring but it’s not a good study routine is actually enjoyable and easy Something that you can do consistently over time So it’s actually better to commit to less study time That would be easy for you to meet and exceed Rather than trying to commit to too much study time and set yourself up for failure So let’s set you up for success if you think that you could dedicate 30 minutes per day to studying English well Let’s start with 20 minutes a day because that’s something that I know you will be successful at and then if you exceed 20 minutes and study for 30 You’re gonna feel really good about yourself. So it’s better to start shorts or small with your study time and develop consistency so that each day builds on the last a good study routine means you’re focused on one thing only you’re not checking social media or email or Reading something while you’re listening to something else multitasking is Really bad during study time. So make sure you’re not talking to a friend on the phone or Unless they’re helping you study, but you really have to be focused on one thing and the really interesting thing Is that the more you focus the last? It takes to master that task your study sessions should be building up Towards a larger goal over time one big mistake that I’ve seen a lot of English learners make is that they just sit down at their desk during study time without any real goal and they say Okay. I’ve been sitting here for 20 minutes. That means I’ve studied for 20 minutes. Why am I not learning? Well, it’s because you don’t know where you’re going with your studies. You don’t have a goal in mind And so that’s why you’re not really learning Just having your butt in your seat at your desk is the first step, but after that We really need to have a plan I’m gonna talk more about that towards the end of this lesson and really your study routine should be enjoyable Some people think that studying has to be difficult. It has to be painful has to be a challenge Yes, it can be a challenge. But how about a good challenge? Have you ever enjoyed? Achieving something that was difficult I think actually we enjoy achieving things that are more difficult if it’s super easy Well, we still can enjoy them, but maybe not as much So anyway, you should make your study time enjoyable by having some Consistent enjoyable thing that you do while you study for example I enjoy having a cup of coffee or tea or maybe you start your study session with some music that you enjoy Preferably music that does not have lyrics in it because that can distract your mind while you’re studying so maybe some some classical music or electronic music that you enjoy a good study routine is not Actually super ambitious because this sets you up for failure Don’t write down in your calendar that you’re going to study for three hours every day when you know, that’s not realistic Make sure that your study time is super realistic and achievable For you in your present life Don’t try to do too much at once Because you might get burnt out and that is not the result that you want a good study session is not Just sitting at your desk. Remember we have to have a goal and a good study routine is Not painful. It should be something that you actually look forward to doing as I mentioned You can help train your brain to look forward to your study routine by involving a cup of coffee or tea or a song that you enjoy or Always have a special space that’s consistent for your study routine Maybe you make your desk really pretty by putting some pictures on it that you like for my own study routine I’ve created an acronym that spells used Too because I get used to my study routine and that makes it a habit. I Understand my bigger goals. I Schedule my studies for the same time each day that helps me to build a routine. I Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea. I develop my skills over time I try new materials to challenge myself and I own my Results, I understand that I’m responsible for the outcome of my study sessions that spells used to So you could use this acronym if you find it helpful for you to here’s an example of how I would suggest You set up your English study time first write down your big English goals may be something like you want to be fluent in English so that you can give a presentation at school or at work or Whatever your big goal is don’t be shy write it down to break down that goal into weekly and daily Study sessions that will help you reach that bigger goal over time. Take your time with this again It’s better to write down your study sessions moving more slowly Than to rush yourself and maybe not give yourself enough time third choose materials that can help you reach your goals Watch go natural English videos or outside of go natural English. You could find TV shows movies Podcasts songs or other media in that help you to develop your vocabulary and fluency next test your understanding How much of these materials are you really understanding 5 try your own? Examples, of course when you’re learning English You don’t only want to be able to listen and read right? You want to be able to write and speak to express yourself as well? Now this is where you need help from someone else But there’s one way that I do suggest getting feedback on your own which is to record yourself Speaking because often when you listen to yourself on playback, you can catch your own mistakes similarly with writing you can Proofread your own writing and you often will catch your own mistakes This is a great way for you to give yourself feedback even before consulting your teacher next give yourself time to reflect on your Accomplishments how far you have come in English so far how much you have learned and then decide? what you want to learn tomorrow and Finally number 8 build each day after you reflect on your progress You can decide what you want to work on more tomorrow as you build a really successful great study routine be patient with yourself and Understand that when you enjoy the journey of building your English skills, you will be more successful More easily much faster it all comes down to building a good habit and a good study routine So, I hope that this was helpful for you.

Scientists Reveal New Study Tips That Actually Work

have a test coming up and you should be studying but you’re procrastinating, distracting
yourself by watching the Infographics Show. Luckily for you, this episode is a useful
one for your situation. If you’re struggling to figure out how to
study more effectively, we can help you out. While we’re at it, we may as well go into
depth and cover the science behind learning to better understand how to absorb information,
not just memorize. How do we learn and what are the mechanisms
of action that lead to a new level of understanding? Also, what did a bobo doll in the 1960’s
show us about human behavior? What we’re about to explain to you is powerful
information so we suggest you use it wisely and don’t abuse it! In the late 1800’s, Russian Psychologist,
Ivan Pavlov, was studying salivation in dogs in response to food when he discovered something
utterly unique for the time. He had already predicted that his dogs would
salivate in response to being given food. That was a given! But what Pavlov did not anticipate was that
his dogs would salivate just from the sound of the footsteps of someone delivering the
food. That’s when he had the idea to measure salvation
from stimuli associated with food, not just the food itself. With this, the concept of classical conditioning
was born. The ring of a bell on its own isn’t going
to make a dog’s mouth water. But what Pavlov discovered is that you can
teach a dog to react by pairing the sound of a bell with food. When associated, the dogs learned to start
salivating at the sound of a bell. This was not done consciously. Rather, it was the inner workings of the dogs’
minds that figured out that the ringing was an indication of the impending arrival of
their dinner. In this way, the dogs learned to adopt a new
behavior without realizing they were doing it. This can also be applied to humans. If you’ve ever watched the popular show,
The Office, you may remember the episode when Jim offers Dwight an Altoid every time his
computer reboots. After repeated exposure, Dwight holds his
hand out, not realizing why he suddenly expects to be given an Altoid after hearing Jim’s
computer reboot. Jim asks, “what are you doing?” and Dwight
answers, “I don’t know. My mouth tastes so bad all of a sudden.” Dwight was unknowingly conditioned to anticipate
fresh, minty breath every time he heard the familiar sound of the computer across from
him. Following Pavlov’s infamous experiment was
John Watson in the early 1900’s. In a time before ethical considerations, a
baby known as “Little Albert” was introduced to a furry, little, white rat before being
subjected to the obnoxious, distressing sound of a gong. At first, Little Albert was not afraid of
the rat. He was even initially amused by the creature. But after numerous pairings of the rat with
the gong, the baby began to cry upon seeing the animal, learning to feel afraid. This taught us a lot about how we develop
phobias to various things. Watson asserted that we are not born afraid,
but that fear is induced in us through association. For instance, you may be terrified of cockroaches
but that may only be because, when you were young, you watched your mother react by screaming
every time she saw one of those creepy crawlies. In this way, she taught you to be afraid of
them by pairing the sight of the cockroach with a fear response. But don’t be too hard on your mom for this. Odds are, it wasn’t intentional. She was just behaving naturally. And who could blame her? Anyone would do the same. Those things are gross! Unless you give it a diamond studded collar
of course. Now, let’s move on to psychologist, Albert
Bandura’s social learning theory. He believes that learning is a social process,
conducted through observation. To demonstrate this, he used a bobo doll. In 1961, the famous Bobo doll experiment was
conducted on children to measure the extent at which behavior was learned by watching
others. Some children were assigned to watch a clip
of an adult being nice to a bobo doll while others watched an adult committing violence
against it. The children were then placed in a room with
the bobo doll in order to see what they would do with it. Findings showed that the kids imitated the
behavior they’d seen prior to interacting with the doll. Some even improvised, adding their own creative
ideas along with the process. For example, a kid might have picked up a
toy gun and pretended to shoot at the doll despite only witnessing the adult punch and
kick it. This was huge in demonstrating how humans
learn to adopt observed behaviors by watching others. With this, the concept of a role model is
taken to a whole new level. Bandura explains four processes to learning. First there is attention or the degree to
which the behavior is noticed. In order to imitate a behavior, that behavior
first has to grab your attention. This is pretty straight forward. Next is retention or how well the behavior
is remembered. You may initially notice the behavior but
perhaps it doesn’t entirely sink in or register for a long period of time. If it isn’t remembered, you don’t imitate
it. Third is reproduction or your ability to perform
the behavior that the model demonstrated. Sometimes we’d like to imitate someone’s
behavior, but we are limited by our physical ability and can’t. You may see someone do a back flip and wish
you could do it, but you’re stumped. Finally, there’s motivation, our willingness
to perform the behavior. If the reward of performing the action outweigh
the cost, we are more likely to do it. For example, if you see that a guy dressing
well attracts a lot of girls to him, you may feel inclined to also start dressing better
because you’ve witnessed the reward from doing so. Okay, so now for the big question: what do
all these theories tell us about studying? What does the science behind learning teach
us with regards to how to study more effectively? Don’t worry, we’ve got your back! We rounded up some tips drawn from decade’s
worth of research. Here’s how the science says you should study
if you want to better assimilate the information and get that big, fat A+ on your next exam. First, it may surprise you to know that cramming
for a test last minute is not helpful. Trying to squeeze in a bunch of information
into a one- or two-night study session will not do you any good. The consensus states that spacing out study
sessions over time is way more effective for long-term learning. So, for instance, if you need to spend a total
of 12 hours on a subject, it’s best to spend three hours per week across the span of a
month before your test than to cram all 12 hours into one week. Now, maybe in the past, you’ve done just
fine on your tests after cramming but, odds are, you don’t remember the material as
well in the long run. Thus, if you want the cost of your college
tuition to be more worthwhile, space out your time in the library. At any rate, spending three hours at a time
hitting the books and then enjoying the rest of the night off binge watching videos on
YouTube is way more fun than a long, brutal, drawn-out 12-hour session. We should also mention that you’re more
likely to remember the first and final parts of what you study. The time spent in the middle tends to get
lost in the shuffle more easily. You can see this for yourself if you try to
memorize a large list of numbers and then try to recall what you remember. Chances are good that the numbers you spew
out mostly come from the beginning and end of that list. Thus, a longer study session means that less
information is retained in-between starting and finishing. That means more time wasted. Next, mixing subjects is best. If you have to study for more than one class,
the science says it’s better to switch on subjects while studying rather than focus
on a single subject for a long period of time. Why is this exactly? The explanation for it is that mixing or interweaving
subjects is key in learning, forgetting and relearning, which helps cement information
in the brain for the long term. You may study the answer to a history question,
move on to something else and then you relearn the answer to that same question and think,
“oh, right! I knew that.” The more often you have to remember something,
the more important your brain considers it. Thus, it becomes better stored for easier
access and future retrieval. Mixing subjects while studying also forces
students to pay attention to similarities and differences between the things they’re
trying to learn, which gives them an improved understanding of the material. So, don’t just block your study sessions
based on the topic. Feel free to switch off back and forth between
them. The learning theories we covered also centralize
around an important theme. That is, we tend to learn and remember lessons
that are more emotionally provoking or that are significant to us in some way, shape or
form. Try to incorporate some meaning to your study
materials. Find a way to connect some aspect of what
you’re learning to something personal in your own life. This will help the information feel more real
to you and make it more memorable. Applications of theoretical material to real-life
situations and scenarios also make the content easier to understand. For instance, if you’re trying to learn
a difficult math concept, try relating it back to something in your daily life. If you’re trying to figure out a percentage
question, for example, think about when you go shopping at the mall and you have to calculate
prices in your head when something is advertised as half off or 30% off. Then relate that information back to the question
in front of you. If you’re studying vocabulary, consider
the meaning of each word and try to use it in a sentence or two that applies to a situation
that is relevant to you. Let’s say your word is “misanthrope.” You could say something like, “My neighbor
is a ‘misanthrope’ because he surrounds his yard with a barbed wire fence to keep
others away. That and he wouldn’t hand out candy during
Halloween, which I’m feeling pretty salty about.” There you have it. Now you get the idea. Teaching others is also a useful tool in cementing
the information into your long-term memory. This is because, when you have to teach a
subject, you’re forced to think in-depth about it. You have to describe it in a way that will
help the other person understand, which, in turn, strengthens your own knowledge. Also, your student may ask questions that
push the bounds of your proficiency, forcing you to think deeply about the answer, further
grounding the information into your head. The final tip on this list is to test yourself
on your knowledge. If you just engage in repeated reading, without
quizzing yourself on the chapters, you get a false sense of familiarity. You feel like you know the material. But retrieving the material is an entirely
different matter. Thus, testing yourself on your knowledge by
forcing yourself to ask and answer questions lets you know what more you still need to
cover and what you’ve already grasped. Do you find this information helpful to you? What did you find most interesting about the
theories behind learning? Let us know in the comments! Also, be sure to check out our other video

Consulting Salary Structure

Hi, I’m Jenny Rae La Roux, Managing
Director of Management Consulted. And we do an extensive salary report
every year, where we cover multiple firms and multiple positions. Today I’m gonna
aggregate some of our learnings together, so that you can understand how salary
structuring works at consulting firms. Let me start at the beginning. The
beginning of every aspirational consultants process, is to think about an
internship. And consulting firms hire interns mostly from two places. Juniors
and undergrad, and MBAs in their first year. The internships are summer
internships and they’re pretty similar. They’re paid at very different rates, but
the structure is the same. The internship is prorated for some of the strategy
firms as a percentage of your overall salary. It is usually not included with a
signing bonus or with a bonus, unless you succeed in the summer internship than
the you’ll receive a full signing bonus for your full time salary. And then
you’re expected to work an unlimited amount of hours for that pro-rated
amount. Now many other firms like big four firms, do pay by the hour for the
summer. And so if you’re going to do a lot of overtime, those can be attractive
places to work for the summer. Interestingly, you do have full benefits
when you’re on the job in the summer but there aren’t bonuses, relocation, and
other benefits like 401k matching that kick in as an intern. All of that changes
when you get hired full time. And so undergrad full-time hires coming out of
your senior year in undergrad, and MBA full-time hires coming out of your
second year of MBA, are paid very much the same. And this is where the bells and
the whistles kick in. You have your base, but you also have your bonus and the
target bonus is a pretty good approximation of what you’re likely to
make. It’s not like some firms that will promised a certain bonus, and then scale
back significantly. You can certainly underperform, but most
people don’t, most people perform on the target or slightly above the target. In
addition, you have 401k matches. Consulting firms are very generous with
their 401k matches. In addition you have relocation bonuses, you have signing
bonuses, and then sometimes they’re even firm-wide profit sharing bonuses. So you
have multiple different elements of your compensation. On top of all of that, your
travel will be entirely covered, sometimes per diem, so you can pocket
some of that of you’re frugal. And sometimes just on an expensed basis. But either way, you’re going to get some additional perks and benefits beyond the
standards of your job. Now it starts to get interesting when you move beyond
those initial analyst roles, into Engagement Manager or Manager Positions, where your compensation begins to be scaled back on a guaranteed level, and
adhering more to your performance basis. You also, in some firms, begin to gain
equity in the firms. And you will either have to pay toward getting some of that
equity, so you’ll pay into it, or you’ll receive it as a portion of your
compensation. Once you move up to the final senior levels, the Partner, the
selling levels inside the organization. The ranks really begin to flip-flop. Your
base compensation, levels out. And it’s still very attractive, it’s in the high
six figures, but you’re still working on
bonuses that will become the majority of your compensation. And your bonus will be contingent on the volume of projects that you sell, the way that you up-sell them, the way that you cross-sell them with other organizations, and projects that
you work on as an expert that you didn’t sell. So there’s a highly variable
portion of compensation once you move into the partner ranks. Consulting firms
sometimes will require a buy-in, but not always. Sometimes the buy-in will be
staggered over time. So they operate a little bit differently than engineering
consulting firms, or law firms in that way. It’s important to understand two
final things about compensation in consulting firms. First of all, you can
expect a pretty significant jump in your base salary and commensurate to that, your bonus, in every year that you work in a consulting firm. It’s accelerated
versus other places. So, it’s 15 to 20 percent in a standard year, and then 30
to 40 percent in a promotion year, which is usually every two to three years. So
you have these huge accelerated jumps in your compensation over time. The final
thing that’s really important for you to understand, is that negotiating for
consulting salaries is pretty unheard of internally, and it’s also unheard of when
you come into a consulting firm. You don’t negotiate on the numbers, you
negotiate on the position. Because the positions are pretty clearly defined.
This is meant to keep a team oriented attitude where the people that are
performing the same roles, are compensated at the base in the same way. And they simply allow for your performance feedback to be the variable
portion of your compensation. Ultimately there are these four levels: 1) Pre-mba and post MBA, which operate very similarly. 2) Managers who are a blend between the more junior style of compensation, and 3) the more senior style of performance compensation. 4) And then finally Partners. Who are really incentivized along with how much they sell and how much they deliver for the firm. If you’re interested in joining a
consulting firm, or want to know if your salary is fair, where you’re currently working, we would love to work with you. If you’re interested in doing a salary study, across multiple firms we also can help

One Day All Those Late Nights and Early Mornings Will Pay Off – Study Motivation

The reason people change
is because of pain. The reason we grow
is because we get uncomfortable and we embrace being uncomfortable. But being honest with
the pain that we feel is usually the prime mover for people
to do the work that is necessary to push to the edge. Embrace the pain that you’re going to feel when you’re trying to do something great you have to understand,
you have to know that with greatness comes pain. Stop listening to the opinions of others
around us that are saying “Oh, you’re never going
to make it, it’s impossible you can’t do it, you will never make it.” Acknowledging our suffering,
being in touch with the pain that’s enough to say “I can’t do this,
I don’t want to do this anymore.” like this is not the person
I want to become. Like I used to sit there then look at
my class, my teachers and I’m like, I’m going to show you,
I’m going to show all of you. You think I suck? I’m going to be the biggest,
best person on earth. You need to immerse yourself
in school, you need to go in deep. All you’re doing every
single day is studying. You’re going to get
distracted from your goals and all these things like arrows
are going to come at you all the time. Whatever your goal is you have to get there. Even though people are
going to say you can’t do it even though people are going to throw
different opportunities, you know you know, I’m sure your friends
went out a million times to Happy Hour when you had to stay late Find out what it is you want and go after it as if
your life depends on it. Why? because it does Thoughts become things,
whatever you put out into the universe you are going to get back. You have an opportunity
to still be achieving. So get up and get on it because the weak will struggle. Success is reserved for
those that are the strongest But you still got time to pass that class you still got time
to finish strong, all right Repeat after me, education education – equals opportunity
– equals opportunity – one more time, education
– education – equals opportunity
– equals opportunity School is like a privilege,
learning is a privilege, getting your education is a privilege not a lot of people can have that surprisingly, I know the people
in your city and in your school all have that and it may seem normal
to you at times, but it’s not. You know people wish to have education people wish they can go to school
and learn and grow as an individual. You know, it’s not about just one
math test that you have tomorrow. It’s not about one grade. It’s that if you do good on this one test you’re going to do good on another
test and then another test and then you’re going to get an A and that’s going to raise
your GPA, and that’s going your GPA is what’s going to decide
what college you’re going to get into and then what your job
will be, like it all adds up. You know always, always try your best Don’t look at it as just a test. Don’t look at it as just a class, a grade. Because anything that you want in life, you know, you’re going to have to work for it
nothing is going to be given to you. See most people only ever
focus on problems. Alright, it’s the world we live in today. We live in a world of
media fueled problems, right? You can’t turn on the news
without seeing problems disasters, all the bad in this world Now most people focus on their problems and make them bigger
than what they actually are. All right, this is where
people are going wrong. If something bad happens and you make that problem even bigger
and tell yourselves things like “This is always happening to me” “This is never going to get better” “This is a big problem” Train your mind Train your mind not to focus on
the problem and make it bigger but focus on the solution to solve it. Stay positive, stay focused and most importantly stay strong. You know, I used to actually
do my homework on a Friday so I would enjoy the weekend,
mostly people do it on Sundays when they have to do it. But I just, I like to
just get over with it. So much better knowing you’re done and you have free time and you
can do whatever you want than have it on your mind while having
the free time, you know what I mean? It’s just so much better to get
it done, you’ll feel so good. Start off good, do your homework and do
the best you can do on every single test. I know I can I know I can be what I want to be be what I want to be If I work hard at it If I work hard at it I’ll be where I want to be. I’ll be where I want to be. I know I can I know I can be what I want to be be what I want to be if I work hard at it if I work hard at it I’ll be where I want to be I’ll be where I want to be Hard work pays off you know the classes that I just slacked off in and
I didn’t do that great in, it showed and the classes I worked really
hard on and I tried my best it showed. You know, it made me
realize that hard work really really does pay off in the end. Your results might not show
and you might feel like you’re failing you might feel like, you’re not getting anywhere,
that you won’t do good but just as long as you try your best just as long as you give it 100% Start off strong and finish even stronger. You got this my friend. If I could go back and give my younger
self just one piece of advice what would it be? Never give up If I could give anyone
just one piece of advice what would it be? Never give up It’s so sad to see so many people
give up on the life they want to live just because of the need to fit in. Fit in with parents, fit in with
friends, fit in with society. Too afraid to dream
of how great life can be because life and others have
offered plenty of examples of what can go wrong. Plenty of examples of how hard life is. How much of a struggle life is. Well, I don’t buy that I believe everyone is capable
of creating the life they want. I refuse to believe we are stuck. I refuse to believe in limitation. We are capable of anything if, only if we believe that because with belief comes action with belief comes possibilities with belief we’re open to opportunities. When we refuse to give up on our dream when we seek to find examples of those who have achieved
the life they want. When we want to learn how we
can make steps forward every day. When we are open to learn more. When we are willing to work for it. When we trust our intuition
and follow our hearts. When we have the courage to trust
the universe and reach for the sky. Well, then anything is possible. If you believe it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, there’s
no doubt you can be it. Believe in yourself Shakespeare said “Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good
we oft might win by fearing to attempt.” See most people fear failure so much they don’t even try therefore they fail by default Achieving anything of significance
in life will never be easy. But the only way you can
guarantee not achieving anything is if you never try in the first place. You do not know what
is going to happen in the future Anything can happen
if you believe in yourself and are willing to learn
how to make it happen It might not happen right away It might take you longer than expected But if you are committed
and maintain belief that in the end you will achieve
your desired outcome. You will achieve your desired outcome Never give up Never ever give up

Curtin’s School of Marketing | A student’s perspective

So my research was in collaboration with
an industry partner, which really gave the overall study a real-world impact.
More than that, we went on to explore different consumer responses to sensory
cues in a simulated luxury retail space. I think the current marketing degree is
as much theoretical as it is creative so you get a really good balance of both,
and you really get to apply that knowledge to again real-life clients in
real problems. I would say to really commit from early on because you can get a lot out of that from an early stage in the degree and to really work closely
with your tutors and unit coordinators. In this fast-moving world, technology is
increasingly crucial to the science of marketing. To be one of the best, it can
only be achieved by being immersed in revolutionary technology, such as The
Hive and Radian6. We, university students, have that golden opportunity with
world-class teaching and technology being able to collaborate with
industries that provide priceless opportunities in building and refining
our skill set. The School of Marketing at Curtin University pride themselves in
ensuring that what we students learn can be applied across different industries,
both locally and abroad, making for what is literally, a world of opportunity.

Enterprising Research: Socially inclusive employment practices

The creative industries contribute 86 billion
dollars to Australia’s Gross Domestic Product. That’s more than the transport industry
or the welfare sector. Our research project is looking into socially
inclusive employment practices in Australia’s Cultural and Creative Industries (CCIs). The lack of employment diversity in the creative
industries is an important issue, and has been subject to high profile debates. We undertook this project because the creative
industries are not only an important part of our economy, they help shape our sense
of both individual and collective identity. But while the problem is widely identified,
existing research in Australia and elsewhere has focussed upon the impacts, not solutions.
This is where our project seeks to make a difference. Our aim in this project was to
use census data to form an accurate picture of the diversity profile of Australia’s
creative workforce, and investigate how the recruitment methods within the sector can
be more social inclusive. To do this, we brought together an interdisciplinary
team, to identify that while some creative sectors are more inclusive than others – radio
for instance – it is important to not just look at the raw numbers for the ‘devil is
in the detail’, for while junior entry-level positions may be more representative of the
Australian population as a whole, the more secure and powerful decision-making positions
and the most desirable creative roles tend not to be. This is where intervention is necessary. There is a strong will for change in the Australian
creative sector; it is looking for solutions. Therefore, the next stage of this project
is to work with our external industry partners to test best practice innovative recruitment
strategies. Hopefully this will ensure that not only are
the best people being employed, but also that the products they produce better reflect who
we are as a nation today.

Office Administration

(Music) Wes Hill, Dean of Business/Applied Technologies
and Educational Partnerships: Office Administration is designed for students who really want to
work in any type of office environment. That could be business, it could be attorney offices,
it could be any place where you might would be an office manager, recordkeeping, and digital
formats. Students themselves will encounter a lot of computerized software. These are
students who really need to know all the ins and outs of how recordkeeping is now digital,
the use of iPads and other technical devices that people they work for need to know so
they can help with assistance with that and formats of different software in terms of
Excel, PowerPoint, timekeeping, there is some payroll involved as well and some business
classes too. I think that most students who really want to get into the secretary, administrative
assistant role, or office manager this is a good program for them. The Office Administration
Program would be a very good degree for a student who is not sure which type of environment
they want to go in but they do want to have some type of office experience. (Music)
