For my final round at Deloitte University, I was challenged to a cupcake eating contest by a Partner. He lost, I got an offer.

And the fact that you became principal only goes to show that the prize of a cupcake eating contest is more cupcakes :P

All, this is my first post and I just want to share that I passed the first Amazon interview for Technical Program Manager and am heading to on-site virtual interviews!

But the work itself is soul crushing and the industry is stagnant. To those who are 40+ years old, is it crazy to change now?
