I also have a math background and used to be a hobbyist software engineer of sort (need to build up my GitHub though) What's the best way to position myself to make the move from ex-consultant to PM, especially if you need visa sponsorship? I'm finding it hard because no one sees me as having any technical capabilities cause of my background in non technical consulting

Which company is better?

Do you ever get tired of people begging for referrals? Which cafeteria do you miss? ( I know most of them)

By PM do you mean program or product? If product, how did you do make the transition? I can’t seem to get my resume noticed. Thanks for doing this!

Why did you choose to go to Google, compared to another tech company (e.g. Microsoft)?

Which google office do you work at? Differences in culture btw offices?

Hello all! I am an MBA in Accounting graduate who has had a few AR jobs in my past professional career and in my current role, I do GL postings and reconciliations and ensure everything for my assigned account is entered and posted to the GL. I really want to transition fully into the Accounting world but when I apply for Staff Accountant jobs (in my mind a step above entry-level), I don't get many calls. What am I doing wrong? What should I be applying for with my education and experience?

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification.

How do you deal with draining family members? My wonderful mother takes on a LOT to keep the family life running back home (across the country with matters that can't really be helped from afar). She's stressed and every time we chat it's just an endless swell of negativity and problems - we all have our own issues and just having to listen can drain me for the week. She blows through boundaries because she needs to vent and I'm not sure how to protect my energy and still be supportive. Ideas?
