    make a choice If you don t vote because you think your state is already determined then you might want to think again Because if everyone felt that exact way then the numbers could swing in either direction very quickly It s the voters paradox More importantly the margin of victory in your district could still be a factor in the momentum any candidate gets during the election If you don t vote because you don t have the time then make the time I m busy too but spending a few minutes to register and vote is well worth the time If you don t vote because you don t like the game of politics I understand but don t agree Half of the game of politics is a ploy by the news channels to get more eyeballs and make more money Another part is paid TV ads trying to get their party an advantage over the other But nothing unexpected given what s at stake in two weeks The good thing about voting is this Voting is free Or the price of a stamp if you mail your ballot in You can vote from anywhere and send in an absentee ballot if need be You can take part in the outcome You can help shape the next four years of our nation or of your local geography in other elections You can join the other thousands of people that will be doing the same You can influence other people in your community to vote You can exercise a right that people have fought and died for You can get smart about the issues You can take a stand for what you believe in You can get started learning and have a stronger voice next time The candidates are

    Jeremy C Wilson June 26 2011 anonymous Thanks for commenting Lotta Breyer July 5 2011 Great post Jeremy It reminds me that I should spend some time thinking rethinking my goals I feel like I m in a fork in the road and it would probably be smart to make sure my priorities are aligned with my basic values no matter which way I go I read between the lines that most of you goals are medium term about 12 months out or so Is that correct Do you also set yourself long term goals or do you feel that your short medium term goals automatically work you toward the future you want Also are your goals pretty concrete and is that something you find helpful Jeremy C Wilson July 7 2011 Lotta Breyer Lotta Thanks for your comment Great to hear you re thinking more about your goals these days Definitely something we do a lot of here in business school For WIGs I think medium terms make sense Being able to focus on a few big goals during the year gives you time and focus to really work hard to obtain them Likewise having medium term goals allows you to keep working toward longer term goals and to see tangible progression along the way On the other hand if you only had one long term goal the stakes would be pretty high and you might risk not making as much progress if you weren t able to achieve the outcome you wanted At least that s my experience I bet everyone thinks about it pretty differently though Jeremy JEREMYCWILSON COM Forget the Resolutions What s Your Wildly Important Goal January 3 2012 is a Wildy Important Goal you ask In a recent blog post about WIGs I said I use the term WIG to describe those things that I m most interested in Forget the Resolutions What s Your Wildly Important Goal January 10 2012 is a Wildly Important Goal you ask In a recent blog post about WIGs I said I use the term WIG to describe those things that I m most interested in JEREMYCWILSON COM Persistence March 10 2012 After you could do that without even thinking about it Instead persistence is pursuing your Wildly Important Goal over and over even when people tell you you can t do it Even when business plan Persistence March 13 2012 easy You could do that without even thinking about it Instead persistence is pursuing your Wildly Important Goal over and over even when people tell you that you can t do it Even when business plan JEREMYCWILSON COM The twenty golden rules of achieving success June 12 2012 a WILDY IMPORTANT GOAL and work on it The Twenty Five Golden Rule s Of Achieving Success June 16 2012 a WILDY IMPORTANT GOAL and work on it JEREMYCWILSON COM One in a million August 29 2012 the positive side it gives you a WIG to pursue and allows

  • Happy Thanksgiving. Here's What I'm Thankful For - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    a few of the things that I m most thankful for this year I m thankful for having the chance to get an education and the opportunity to be enrolled in a great graduate program today This is especially true considering where everything started Youngstown OH as my access and economic means were significantly limited It was certainly not something that always seemed possible I m also thankful for the opportunities I ve had access to as a result of being in school Great clubs great organizations and great job opportunities My goal is to continue to do what I can to help others from my community create those same opportunities I m also thankful for my parents who supported me and pushed me along to pursue a better education Sometimes it seemed hard but when I was young my parents made sure that I stayed on track In large part because they wanted me to achieve the things they never had the chance to I m also thankful for my great classmates many of whom are some of my best friends today When you re going through the fire in school it s always great to have classmates and friends you can count on and enjoy the experience with I m also thankful for the JD MBAs here in my program Not only a really smart group but also a group where every one of us undergoes the same process We have to take extra classes We all have limited bidding points and multiple sets of emails to manage We all have to move cities multiple times And worst of all we all have to get on the shuttle every day in the final year And finally I m thankful for the Internet where we can I share this message with lots of people Not only is the net revolutionizing modern communication but it s also helping democratize access to information for those who need access the most In sum I m thankful for education I don t take it for granted and you shouldn t either The jobs we have access to earning potential we can achieve and most importantly the role we have the opportunity to take on in society are all a privilege So we should treat them as such We should use them as a platform A way to give back to those that helped us And a way to improve access in our communities For every person that got into a great school there are tens of thousands in the US and millions other nations that would love to same chance The chance to have our seat in school To take the exam that we complained about afterward To go to the classes we thought about skipping So let s show the world we are thankful and that we were the right people for the seats Happy Thanksgiving everyone Hopefully it s filled with family friends and most of all with lots of Thanks

  • About My Blog - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    the way we found that having access to information also made a really big difference Not knowing enough about the college application process I only applied to Stanford because one of my best friends applied Luckily I was able to get accepted But I chose my major at Stanford Anthropology based on interest but little did I know that wasn t good enough for some job applications Two years later I couldn t even get first round interviews at any of the big banks when many of my friends and house mates got multiple interviews with their economics degrees I came to find that selecting the right major and taking the right classes just like picking the right school played a big role in determining what opportunities were possible at the time This is what compelled me to start my blog Today my biggest takeaway so far is that while sometimes raw intelligence and unique skills can be enough for admission into your top school or landing your dream job taking your career to the next level is also about having good timing finding committed mentors and most importantly having access to information during critical transition points So in high school when you re applying to college in college when you re looking for a job and after college when you re applying to grad school And so I want to use my site as a way to be a voice for those who seek it and over time to become a venue to democratize access to this information that for many is so hard to find and for others who didn t even know to look And my readers benefit immensely because many come from diverse backgrounds and from families where access is limited I have done all of this through the lens of a Northwestern JD MBA student I think this will continue to be useful to grow the wonderful JD MBA program here at Northwestern as well as to demystify the application process for the program It will also be useful more generally as people begin to see the different values that both degrees have and how all of those factors look at Northwestern versus other institutions Since I ve been blogging I have proudly taken part in helping people get admitted to great business and law schools and motivating people to pursue their Wildly Important Goals I ve also engaged in conversations about the education system and articulated my beliefs about what works and what does not work in business and in business school But it doesn t all end here A lot of work still need to be done in 2013 Access to education in disadvantaged communities is not changing The cost of education is on the rise And the gap between high and low income students is higher than ever before I look forward to not only blogging about these issues but also working on them and many others this year Among other things

    know if you have any specific questions about any of the programs Best Jeremy Kiran Menon March 14 2013 Hello Jeremy Thank you for taking your time and noticing my message I m an aspirant of JD MBA and I have narrowed down certain colleges which are considered among the best in what it caters to JD aspirants I m 28 years old and I m a full time trader Money Manager in Capital markets and I m still on my path in order to save some amount that would satisfy the 200 000 average expenses that is required typically to study for JD It is not easy for someone to save even upto half of the aforementioned amount as I m based in India and when a weaker currency is denominated into US Dollars a lot of sacrifices have to be made However this is not my main concern My main concern is would the school even consider my work experience as a Trader registered money manager such as myself as a pre requisite and considering I have already put in 7 years of my life into it will it serve to my advantage while applying to these colleges Secondly I could get an oppurtunity in US to work but that would again be for a Trader however I would be simultaneously looking to get an under Grad Degree in Mathematics in order to strengthen my chances to get into these schools but it would result into waiting some more years before JD happens will age matter while applying for these course By the way I m a CFA Level 3 candidate and I want to take up mathematics so that it would be relatively easier for me to even later on apply for courses in mathematical finance econometrics

  • Careers Question: Laid Off, New Job Offer & Networking. What do I do? - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    as I continue to progress in my own career Often times it feels like a herculean task with a lot at stake if you make the wrong choice The good news here is that there s not a whole lot of pressure given you ve got a job waiting for you if you decide to take it In any event here s how I like to think about the issues In context hopefully it s relevant for you as well 1 Nowadays many people are making decisions based on the economy In my view that makes a lot of sense especially for younger professionals like you who have not hit the two years experience threshold and that may not have quite as much cash in the bank so may not want to spend too much time off In my personal experience I know a couple of recent graduates who lost their jobs right after joining their companies and really struggled finding their next position because they didn t have the months years of experience to bring to the table In that sense taking the job might be compelling On the other hand there s definitely something to be said about taking your time having a little patience doing your research and really finding the right company and the right role One thing in your benefit is that it looks like you ve gained some real technical experience in your last role and in your academic career so some companies will really value that if you decide to hold out 2 Generally heading toward your dream jobis a multi step process including both the short term i e immediate next steps and the longer term years down the line The important thing here is to be sure that your ST goals align with your longer term vision In this case you have the option of hopping into another client services role at a different investment firm and although it may not be a substantial step forward toward your dream job as an advisor it is very related and seems to fit your story pretty well while also providing you with a unique set of experiences to draw from once you do become an advisor If I were in your position I might do some more fact finding and see just how related this role is to your last role degree of technical skill involved contacts with advisors actual client contact how much of a sales role and then reflect on how happy I d be in that role 3 A Many people choose to MBA when these sort of transitions don t work out according to plan But on average folks in these positions tend to have closer to 4 or 5 years of experience as opposed to one year And although some schools are taking early career candidates CLICK HERE for my post on early career candidates most still look for more than one year of experience and also a
