Hi all, I currently have 1.5 years experience in IT audit and am wanting to make the transition to tech consulting. I came across this job posting at D but am not sure if this is a good fit as they are looking for snow dev/imp experience. My experience with snow has been primarily reviewing change tickets captured within snow. I do have an information systems degree. Is it worth applying or am I wasting my time/ setting myself up for failure?
