Three recommendations from MBA mentor

We have a mentorship program with the MBA program at McGill. I met with my mentor a few weeks back and three things came out of the meeting:

1) I should take some time off before school starts again (ok I will take 4 days off).

2) I should do the recruitement process for Montreal law firms.

I was hoping to start working outside Montreal after my degree, but it may be the better stepping stone in the long-run. I was told at the carreer office as well that I should not turn down Montreal so quickly. I am starting to be convinced. The work-life balance is more possible, the European, laid-back,lifestyle is more apparent here. Cost of living is lower in Montreal. Easier to network and becoming known in Montreal. We'll see how it goes.

3) I should get some brown dress shoes to match my grey suit.
