Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
Prepping for AWS Cloud Practitioner cert. Any suggested on sample test questions that best represent the exam?

Honing Bash and Shell scripting. Picked up certifications as a PMP, AWS Cloud Practitioner, and AWS Solution Architect Associate along the way. Already have an MBA. What is the best way to break into the cloud and/or DevOps community?
Is it too late to apply to MBA as a SC (apply with 5 years of experience)? Feeling REALLY time crunched to apply in 2019 but afraid I’d be too old to apply next year... please advise
Is it worth it to get a professional certification like SHRM/PHR? Not many of my colleagues have one and it’s not a requirement for my role, but I’m curious if it’s worth it in the long run
CISSP CPE question: Does anyone know if a Udemy AWS cloud practitioner certification course can be leveraged for Group A CPE credits on ISC2? Udemy provides a certificate with hour totals, but I didn’t know if ISC2 frowns upon these courses.
My job said I can expense AWS Cloud Practitioner certification but I don’t know where to go from here? Do I sign up on Amazon somewhere? Where do I get study material? Etc

What do non-MBA undergraduate campus hires with 3 years of consulting experience make? PwC: SA1 makes 99k in NYC. Some are SA2s and it'd be 105k. Bonuses are shit so ignore that lol.
Risk consulting 🐠, what do you think about the FRM certification? For those that have it, has it helped you on project work and do clients look at it favorably?
SAP consultants who are certified- has your certification put you ahead of the game with all the changes within the GBS?
Has anyone seen or discussed this Petition for SHRM must support Black Lives Matter & the LGBTQ community? I’ve grown increasingly concerned and disappointed in SHRM’s lack of vocal support for employment protections for LGBTQ+ and black and brown workers, especially as a black woman in HR. It seems like SHRM is overly focused on what is absolutely “legal” and not what is right. I’m of the opinion HR professionals must not only be “legal” but have a relevant and compassionate stance

Hi All, Hi I had a TP1 interview with HCL which was a technical round. Now I have another meeting scheduled named TP2. Does anyone know if this round will be technical or managerial round? Thanks
Can company ask for a COVID positive test results? HR is asking for "tracing" purposes. I don't really care to provide as I don't think they mean anything negative, but thought maybe I should be aware of what is allowed or not at least.
How is the interview process at Publicis Sapient for their management consulting practice?
Leaving Chicago at the end of this month. The job market here has been tough. Feel like every job that I apply to gets canceled or put on hold which I understand. Not going to fly back.

I love this city. Would like to stay here in Chicago.

Genuinely asking… Why is the media clamoring about COVID infection rates? I thought we only cared about infections because infections x A = hospitalization rate; and hospitalization rate x B = death rate However, in this wave both A and B have declined substantially given the vaccination rate. But the media doesn’t seem to be talking about it. The UK has the Delta wave a few weeks before us and is not seeing infection rates decline. Am I missing something? Genuinely asking.
I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
