    operate based on financial analytics That said I still think it s solid advice While I don t consider myself to be a finance person and am not going to b school specifically for that reason I do think someone with his experience has really valuable insight and I ll probably pick up some extra finance courses more than I might otherwise have taken Kellogg s most famous class is Entrepreneurial Finance which I will definitely take The comment also shows that despite the strong brand of both these schools and the caliber of the students reputation will play a part in how we are perceived in the workforce good and bad And conversely despite the fact that dozens of other schools teach the soft skills very well too many to name those school don t get the reputation for it that Kellogg and HBS get Personally I really value the soft skills so as an applicant I really liked the brands of both HBS and Kellogg I am excited to be headed to Kellogg and the JD MBA program this fall Thursday July 30th 2009 Business School TAGS Bain Consulting Finance HBS Kellogg 7 Comments to Kellogg and HBS Olive Tree Guitar Ensemble July 30 2009 Hi it s a very great blog I could tell how much efforts you ve taken on it Keep doing Jeremy July 30 2009 Olive Tree Thanks for reading and thanks for the nice words about my blog I plan to post regularly so hopefully you will keep reading Tiger23 July 31 2009 Jeremy Great blog you have Keep up the good work I visited Kellogg last fall and sat in on the Entrepreneurial Finance class I wasn t surprised to see alot of ex consultants in the class Anyways my advice to you is to take as many finance classes as possible A solid understanding of finance econ accounting and investments combined with your JD degree will make u stand out during interviews Best of luck Jeremy August 1 2009 Tiger23 Thanks for the comment I also sat in Entrepreneurial Finance and really enjoyed the class and Prof Rogers Finance definitely seems to be an inevitable part of my future Anonymous August 9 2009 Hey Jeremy Nice post Here s my 2 cents I think Kellogg has an advantage over HBS as far as teaching hard skills I am doubtful of HBS s case study all day everyday method I spoke to a HBS student recently and he pretty much confirmed what I had imagined it is a challenge to learn the basics of say finance by reading and discussing cases Also I had a friend who was at HBS and who had a bulge bracket investment bank fellowship She was a career switcher even though she had been in finance before b school When she started at bulge bracket firm she was getting her butt kicked She said she had a lot to learn I wonder if that had to do

  • Good Friday ... For Labor and Job Statistics - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    hunt for six figure jobs in their mid twenties if ever So many times that person may end up jumping through a lot more hoops to get to the promise land of finding employment ii And not only do these individuals represent a small percentage of the overall economy but they also have the advantage of undergoing a highly sophisticated recruiting process that starts well before interview season begins A process where employers have coffee chats luncheons mixers and receptions months before recruiting ever begins And a process where hundreds of employers accept resumes come to campus and interview dozens of students on campus all day And sometimes multiple days So taking a step back and looking at everything from a 30 000 foot big picture view I see that it s a privilege to have the process in place So with a 30 000 foot view in mind here are the objective arguments about the labor force from both sides 1 One on hand the hard numbers from BLS do suggest improvement i In total employers added 162 000 jobs in March the biggest monthly gain in three years That s always a good starting point ii Manufacturing payrolls have also reportedly increased iii This story is also true for heath care employers who added 27 000 full time jobs and 40 000 private sector temp jobs iv Surprising is that construction field held steady for the first time after losing nearly 865 000 last year v Further sources also suggest that the investment banks are finally starting to breathe again and that broadening their scopes of services has helped them to decrease risk and squeeze out more revenues vi And finally the unemployment rate is still down to 9 7 2 On the other hand context suggests that the grass may only look greener i I suspect we re all aware that the number of jobs and hence total payroll numbers continue to skydive in financial industry Venture capital and entrepreneurship numbers also remain low ii However even the numbers that are improving according to US News may really be more related to a reduction in labor force than an improving economy iii But despite these more nuance calculations even real growth number according to some sources are lower than expected For example forecasters expected 200 000 new jobs in March not 162 000 And that s in spite of the fact that BLS reported more census takers this year than usual Not only does that potentially positively change the accuracy of the reporting of the numbers but it also increases the number of actual jobs created And coincidentally these happen to be six month temporary jobs not full time permanent jobs While adding temp jobs is a good way for businesses to pick up and a good way for folks to earn a bit of cash it also may not be indicative of any real economic trend In a recent post Former Secretary of Labor said something

  • The Role of Local Counsel - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    If the deal takes place in a state where there lawyer is not qualified to practice law then the lawyers would not be able to work on the deal On the other hand if the deal takes place in a state where the lawyers are qualified to practice but parts of a deal may involve an additional state then a firm may hire local counsel to assist One reason local counsel should be a part of any relevant deal because without hiring them lead counsel may be engaged in the unauthorized practice of law Anothe reason to hire local counsel is because counsel should also have more knowledge and experience in the states that they practice Without getting too far into the weeds local counsel is very important because they provide opinions that give comfort to lendeers and induce them to move forward in transactions that ar eoutside their borders These opinions are relied upon to deem the transaction as valid to show that it complies with all aspects of local law and that the debt is secured by verifiable collateral in that specific state While the folks at many big firms on a deal are certainly smart enough to do such work they wouldn t be as close to the matters as local counsel would be and that s the role of local counsel Saturday July 13th 2013 Business School TAGS Law No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or comments as you read EducationMatters Share your education story
