Can anyone recommend a reputable on-line training course for Microsoft Suite that includes Excel, Power Point, Outlook and Teams? I have been recently laid off and feel as though my skills aren't as sharp as we relied heavily on internal systems. I consider myself slightly below intermediate but I want to be proficient in all the above. I would also like to learn Sale Force as it wasn't required for my role but it seems to be the preferred CRM.

Check on coursera/udemy for courses that can provide you with certificates which you can show employers. Also personally find that YouTube videos also help.

Most of the Microsoft certs I've gotten, I've studied for directly from Microsoft's learn portal. If you're okay with readin/studying on your own, its free and you get an idea of Cert paths if you want to pursue any. This is just an example of one of the trainings on their site, but there are many more:

How do you transition from big 4 consulting to big law? My clients are all funds, and I do international tax consulting. I have used my connections to refer me into probably 10 big law firms and it’s not working. One most recently came back and said they aren’t interested bc I have no law firm experience. How am I supposed to get it though? I can’t go to lower ranked firms bc my clients are all “big.” … any suggestions appreciated!

Curious what’s a fair salary in MA? Was just told that there is likely not going to be a chance for a raise during my upcoming performance review due to my salary already being “above average for the industry” based on my employer’s questionable research. I’ve been with the company 8.5 years & am the only one in my role, which they can’t operate without. I execute tasks from two investment advisors and two financial planners - they make the decisions of what should happen & I make it happen.
