God’s hand is what you are going to sure enough need if you list your MBA on your resume among your educational accomplishments when the job does not necessarily require one. This is the most coveted, yet hated degree on the planet. But Why???
The reason is… most managers, directors, VPs and CEOs have made it to the top of the ranks without it. Its going to be very difficult to convince them why they should give you preference over a candidate who is just as eligible for the position as your are just because you have an MBA.
The first thing they are going to ask is, “What makes you a Master of Business? At that point, you should be able to pull out a portfolio of business ideas, start ups, and applications you’ve designed for yourself and others that could possibly and humbly stand you out as a candidate. In other words, what can you do to generate money for the company behind the degree?
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average salary for an HR manager with MBA is $99,720. I’ve had an MBA for 15 years and I’ve never received a job offer for that kind of money. There are a few of the BIG Consulting Firms that hire MBAs and if your are fortunate enough to get one of their names under your belt you may tout the respect are be sought after by large corporations, but for the most part for most MBA holders you have to prove that what you have is valuable behind the credentials.
I know plenty of managers who make between $95,000 to $235,000 and they only have a Bachelor’s Degree. Well, I forgot one of them has a law degree. What I’m saying is there is inconsistency of actually what the real worth of holding an MBA should be.
After years of observation, I noticed the true Master of Business Administration is one who can create his own shot. In 2016, I foresee 2 things happening in the life of MBA Holders.
- They are going to realize there calling to the world of Business and what this requires.
- They need to expand and go after work as contractors, authors, business consultants, church consultants, life coaches, entrepreneurs and creatively find other avenues to make money on their own in addition to the traditional 9am to 5pm. So, if you are in the middle of looking for a job opportunity, “Don’t Sweat it” you’ll come up with a solution you were born to do this:)
What I have decided to do in this season is change the meaning of my MBA. I rededicated it back to GOD. It now stands for:
Moved By the Anointed
Hand of God!!!
1 John 2:27, You are anointed of God
Kings were anointed. 1 Samuel 16: 3,13 says, “Invite Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will show you what to do. You are to anoint for me the one I indicate. So, Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of the Lord Came upon David in power.”
