As a tech consultant, is the AWS cloud practitioner good for an analyst or is the AWS solutions architect more necessary?

Also are there any other certifications you would recommend for someone starting out?

Cloud practitioner is kind of a joke, a very basic cert that is like being able to fill out an AWS cross word puzzle. Get the Solutions Architect Associate at the minimum

Have you tried using ACloudGuru to study?

I have so much mom guilt sending my baby to daycare. She’s 6 months old.

I know this is a first world problem, but has anyone done this?

When you are switching firms, what do you care about? What kind of questions do you have? Do you ask about where the company is going and what strategies they are taking? How do you ask about culture? Do you ask about happy hours or team composition? What matters to you other than compensation and WLB? I’m trying to be a more curious person, and not just focused on the money

In a tough situation and need some advice. I’m an audit associate who got passed up for senior promotion this year, but senioring a busy season engagement. There is another senior that is supposed to be on the job, but he hasn’t been staffed on the engagement the past couple weeks and is off this week. I now have the full responsibility of this engagement on my hands and feel like it’s pretty unfair considering I got passed up for promotion and am not getting paid to be a senior. What do I do?
