Jose Colin began his post-MBA career as a Senior Program Manager at Amazon.


"I came to Boston College from Mexico City, where I worked in operations for a Mexican transnational company for eight years. When it was time to move to a position with more growth potential, I knew that a graduate degree in business was the best way to complement my work experience."

"As an international student without permanent work authorization in the United States, I expected the job search to be challenging. But I ended up with two job offers before graduation."

"The first offer was from New Balance in Boston, where I had done not only a summer internship but also a part-time internship during the second year of my MBA program."

"Then I got a call from Amazon, inviting me to apply to their selective MBA recruiting program for a job in purchasing. Several intensive interviews later, I received a competitive offer, complete with a relocation package and visa sponsorship.  My education at the Carroll School gave me the tools to compete for a job at this level, and the School’s good reputation in the marketplace helped my resume get noticed. I’m grateful that my experiences at BC allowed me to move into a position in an exciting company with a lot of growth potential."
