I was a Math major at an Ivy League school, and initially entered FinTech. I transitioned to People Analytics a year ago & love it, and I'd like to become (eventually) a CHRO. Right now I'm imagining that in the context of a tech startup, but mostly because that's where my experience has been so far. I've chosen each school because of personal connections. [As a note, my demographic info is: white / female / LGBT]
1: Would love to hear what your take is on a People Analytics candidate! Is this cliche or uncommon? 2: My GMAT is higher in verbal than in quant. Is it all right to rely on my academic / professional background to prove my quant abilities?
