Is it appropriate to use the expression "gain employment" in the context of a business school admission essay?

I am confident that my MBA from my previous school will help me to gain employment in this position.

The reason for my question is that I am not sure if "gain employment" is a good enough expression for an essay to business school.

  • It's an essay to a business school about gaining employment in a position at the business school? It would be helpful if you could clarify the situation as it's unclear. Any research?

gain employment

is an understandable phrase. The question is in what context you are using it?

It sounds like it's for a job application, in which case you will want to describe how what you studied in business school qualifies you for the position. The mere fact you went to business school will not ensure employment. Even if you are applying to a company which has many alumni from the same school, they will usually notice this without having to mention it.

If, however, you are chatting with your friends and say

I am confident that my MBA from my previous school will help me to gain employment in this position.

it might be appropriate.
