5 Years Later

Today, Kwantum Leap celebrates its 5th anniversary! Looking back, we can't believe how quickly time has passed, and are extremely grateful for all the success we've achieved.

When we decided to start this business, we had a belief that despite all the coaches out there, we could do even better. We thought we knew our clients better, we understood their career hopes & fears, and would be able to give some tangible, candid & down-to-earth advice, to get them closer to their dream jobs.

    The Best Places to Launch a Career in 2009

    This week's (Sept 14) cover story of BusinessWeek magazine highlights their results of the 2009 edition of "the Best Places to Launch a Career"...and $10 says you won't be able to guess who it is. I'll give you a hint. I know this company better than ANY other one in the world.

    First, a caveat. This article is heavily biased towards the U.S. job market, and while most of the companies on the list are MNCs (multi-national corporations), some of the specifics that are mentioned in the article apply only to certain U.S. office locations, and not necessary to what is happening in all countries of the same company.

    And the winner for 2009...

    New English Test for B-School Candidates

    Ensuring that MBA candidates, who's English is not their native language, can handle the rigours of the classroom and academics is a big concern for the Admissions Committees (AdComs), especially given the huge increase in applications from both India and China.

    The new English test, known as the Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic), seems to be another way to help filter and legitimize the candidate pool. Endorsed by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), who runs the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), the new test will debut on October 26, 2009 for non-native English speakers.

    Part of this computer-based test involves providing a 30-second voice sample / recording for schools to assess your English proficiency. According to the official press release, schools already signed-up to accept these new test scores include London Business School, University of British Columbia, Queen's University Belfast, University of Edinburgh, HEC Paris and Yale University.
