Have been looking at working for foundations on the banking side post grad (ie, GS, BOA, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley,etc.) or large family foundations that work on grants, community development and social impact post-MBA. I know Yale is well known for their social impact space but are there any other programs that come to mind I should explore? I was considering going an MBA + MPP because those really pair well with that kind of role.

Hi guys! I need a suggestion from all of you. I have total experience of around 6 years. In my career I never settled on one skill. Sometime I got work of python backend development, sometime automation and then from past 1.5 years working as elasticsearch developer. Now, my manger wants me to build recommendation engine using AI ML, as I have major experience in Python and I have done some certification. I feel insecure because I am not perfect as I have not picked one skill like many guys.
