Anyone here take APICS CSCP? Is it worth it? What type of role are you in?

Will be taking exam at the end of the month. Currently working for a firm focused on procurement. Projects consist of P2P tech implementations and sourcing. In my opinion, unless you plan to transition to an industry role or are in a pure supply chain consulting role, I find the total cost for the CSCP hard to justify. If I could do it again, I would have pursued a lean six sigma green belt or expanded my skills in python. My degree is in SCM; the CSCP feels like a surface level review of topics I learned in college.

#SAP senior tech consultant vs #Snowflake SQL cloud support engineer?

Base/bonus are about the same. SAP has RSUs but not with the offer. Snowflake has RSU as part of the offer (not sure how much yet though). Both within a growing team with great potential, visibility, and impact.

SAP would be more sales support & client interactions more mplementation & sales engineering.
Snowflake would he dealing with tickets. Quarterly reviews with "quotas" and metrics. Weekend/holiday rotation as well.

Hi. I’m looking for advice. I recently interviewed for a job with the EPA. The hiring manager and team seems like it would be a good fit and I would be working on projects that would be what I want to be doing as a career. The job description has not been written up yet. How likely would the job be remote versus telework? My boyfriend has said he would not want to relocate. It almost seems like a cliché situation and I would be very conflicted about moving away from him.
