I heard you could use the college savings 529 plan towards grad school. I've never tried it as I am currently pre-MBA. It was something my friend suggested. You can also find a firm that can cover a good amount (I heard Deloitte covers full tuition).

Should I stay at my current firm to get promo to manger in 4 months or move to Deloitte as SC and delay the promo by at least 18 months ? Compensation would increase by 10% in the first year and more in the subsequent years. I will be making approximately the high end of SC (MBA) comp at Deloitte.

Hello All.. Just want to get some feedback on the following : I recently obtained Administrator certification, plan to sit for Plat App Builder next week. Am enrolled for CPQ class in September. Mason Frank recently reached out to me for a position. This would be my first Salesforce position if I am successful in the interview process. I have heard mixed reviews for this practice. Would it do undue damage to my Salesforce career to have that as first Salesforce Practice in my resume?

Tips on staying in touch with old contacts? I have really good friends from college & mba, but I struggle to keep them in my life if I don’t see them everyday. I want to text them often enough to keep in touch but I feel like the conversation is awkward because we don’t have much to talk about now that we graduated and don’t see each other for months at a time. What do I talk about? How do I make the convo natural and flowing?

Monday morning and the only thing that goes through my mind is wow I hate my job. Between the strict requirement of releasing billing time daily, high billable goal and I guess a heavy workload (and everything that comes with living through a pandemic) it’s hard to start my day excited for work. And I hate it. Makes me question why I’m doing this for a living.

I am one one of those laid off from Deloitte on H1-b (stamped) visa. My question is, if I join a consultancy and initiate H1-b transfer with them, then in one month I find full time job outside. Can the consultancy stop me from joining the full time role? I have heard couple of instances where consultancies not releasing the i797 approval document. If the consultancy does not release my i797, can my transfer process with the full time job happen? Please help - I have 40 days left to find new job
