Can anyone give insight to what the day to day looks like for a workforce analyst and what skills would make them successful?

(Backstory) I was interviewing for an HR Business Analyst role with a company, I didn’t get the job but they referred me to a “Strategic Workforce planning Analyst” role they have open bc it would be a better fit. I’m an HR Analyst and have been working with HR metrics for a few years, but I’m not entirely sure what that transition would look like.

You should focus on your analytic and writing skills. It may get a little technical because you have to work in front of the computer most of the time. So you need to really have good computer skills too. A workforce analyst has similar job nature like with the HR. Since you have the experience on the field maybe that's why it was suggested that you give it a try.

I did this for a startup a few years ago. It entailed determining the best time to schedule people to meet business needs, identifying people who are being let go due to poor performance, determining if PTO requests are an issue, developing contingency plans in the event of a major disruption, quantifying top performers for raises and bonuses, and so on. My experience was broad due to the startup nature of the role, but it was also eye-opening.

Think of it very much as a high level role, you're going to be more of a storyteller and trying to make sense of the data rather than getting into the nitty gritty

Hey I’m wondering what Business Development Representative salaries at Google Cloud in Dublin are like — and how much do you think I can negotiate for a low level role.

Google Cloud seems to be a better long term career move even if pay doesn’t match up.

I got burned in the aftermath of the FTX Cryptocurrency bankruptcy. I know it was stupid of me to invest in something I know very little about, but all I can do is avoid riskier investments in the future. As of now, I lost $40k.

Now, I'm unmotivated to save though. I feel like all my hard work over the years was for nothing. Did anyone have a similar loss in the past, and felt unmotivated afterwards? If so, did you ever recover?

Any advice about my situation from the fine folks in this bowl?
