An American in Buenos Aires: My immigrant story

MBACM Including Every Student in the US Job Search

In the MBACM office we want to help every student achieve their long and short-term career goals. As is the Wharton way, we always start by looking closely at data to understand different groups and macro trends. At the same time, we work with every student individually.

Reflections of an International Entrepreneur in the US

After accepting the proposal to write this reflection, I forced myself to write down the first thing that would come to my mind from my entrepreneurial experience in the US. The answer was failure. I have failed at building a supportive network of Wharton entrepreneurs around me. The fact that my business (JuntoSalimos) is very

Recruitinomics: Get Rich While Getting a Job

Recruiting season has kicked into gear for 1Ys. To the uninitiated, this might elicit feelings of anxiety, TBD. But, to the shrewd investor, recruiting should be synonymous with one thing – money. Wharton’s annual 850-person scramble for 30 jobs from 3 consulting firms radically shifts students’ purchasing habits over a 6-month period. While others are

The Spirit of Wharton

Halloween season always reminds me of Arnie. Like all Wharton students, Arnie pushed the boundaries of the extraordinary. But to call Arnie a student would miss most of the story; Arnie, you see, was a ghost. You might wonder how a ghost wound up at Wharton. Arnie first haunted the halls of Huntsman around 2012

Making Personal Finance “Common Cents”

During Winter Welcome Weekend, a fellow admit broached an interesting question. What, if anything, could be a “silver lining” to his student loans? As a few of us began to debate the question, we rapidly realized that we were struggling to find a great answer. After leaving Philadelphia, I not only carried a wonderful set
