I recommend the AWS Cloud Practitioner Course/ Certificate for cloud ( if you are looking for Google Or Azure they will have similar courses) If you are learning from online you need to be careful to avoid tutorial hell. List down your topics and learn them from established ( if required paid) sources.

All the major cloud providers have free training/videos/docs so don’t pay for anything. Look for the training geared for sales peeps as a starting point (understanding terminology and very basic concepts). AWS even has a free cert you can get. I would try to achieve something like that to start. The business application part can be a little more complicated. You’ll just have to research research research as it comes up. A lot of that comes from experience. If you’re really wanting to get a jump you can maybe take a look at some of the enterprise architecture type books like TOGAF. My recommendation is to stick to cloud basics for now. Figure that out first.

Looking for advice. I’m a sr. associate in cyber at a Big 4 on track for a promo to manager in a year. My old employer reached out to me about coming back as an Assoc. Dir., BISO. Concern is that this BISO role would not have bonuses (nonprofit), so I’d potentially be “throwing away” $ by leaving consulting now. Would opps later on be better having had an associate director role on my résumé before I’m 30? Should I stick it out in consulting? The job is a dream, but short term $ is def less.
