I'm at an interesting juncture in my career and would appreciate your thoughts.
[b]The Present Situation[/b]
I’m 26, have been with my current (and only) company for 3 years, have had increasing responsibility, diverse roles (Global EHS, supply chain/customer service, IT, marketing and strategy), and am seen as a HIPO. I am with a global mineral mining and processing company.
In my current position (of 7 months), I’ve come to the realization that I very much disagree with my new division manager’s mission, vision, and management practices.
Thus, for the last 6 weeks, I’ve been looking for new jobs and have an interview with a privately held industrial distribution company that is known for leadership development, but is strictly domestic.
Alternatively, my previous boss who has been relocated to our Group Paris HQ may have global projects available for me to be involved with.
Additionally, I plan on getting an MBA (1 yr program) beginning May 08, though that’s tentative.
My career goals are to manage at the highest levels in large, dynamic, global companies, preferably in an industry I’m passionate about (automotive perhaps). The MBA track I plan to pursue is in Global Management. I consider this an important step towards my goals.
If my goal is [u]global management in a different industry[/u], what might you recommend for my current situation to best set up for the future? [b]ANY[/b] feedback is appreciated!
