Should I tell hiring manager that I just applied for my MBA?
So I’m interviewing at Facebook for a finance role. Prior to this my initial plan was to focus on obtaining my MBA at Haas (PTMBA).
I’m not a student yet, I just submitted my application for Round 1.
I personally don’t think that I should because: 1) I’m not a student 2) it may be a detriment to my application because it shows that I MAY not be able to fully commit and 3) weird flex but okay
My mentor argued otherwise:
1) I should be transparent with the hiring manager 2) it may actually help my candidacy; the program wouldn’t start until the summer anyways (assuming that I get in) and 3) it shows that I want to continue expanding my toolkit and that I’m able to look beyond just this job.
What do you guys think?
