What kind of business applications?

Common applications or cases particularly in finance and supply chain. To throw out a few basic examples... pricing, costing, inventory management, make vs buy, procurement spend/order quantities, transportation problems, capacity planning, etc.

Not a book ... but a Udemy course - Use Excel like a Pro. I did it after I first got out of college. It teaches a good way to properly document a workbook and organize the analysis. EY has their own Udemy site and I see a lot of good resources there too. Not sure if yours has something like that.

Thanks I’ll check that out!

As a first generation college graduate, first one to land a job in Corp. America, there’s so much that I wasn’t prepared for like 401k, investing, along with other things that increase your TC that aren’t bonuses or your base salary or how to diversify your income. I’m 25 and I feel like there is SO much I still don’t know. Any good book recommendations/youtubers/podcasts that helps navigate this?

Book recommendations threads! Include title with a brief summary: ‘The Philosopher and the Wolf’ by Mark Rowlands. A book about connections beyond humans. Not just with animals, but the world. He does a phenomenal job of wrapping philosophical thoughts and theories into every day life. Highly recommend for those who love the outdoors, have a dog, or want a new outlook on life.

So if you're a GCD or up, 80% chance you'd love the ad scene here.
