Do you know anyone already in pharma? I think their referral could bridge you that jump.

Being in the right circles– try reaching out to your contacts or mentors. Best of luck!

Hey fishes,

I currently work on SAP ABAP, 2.5YoE
I am a bit skeptical about the future growth and scope.

Based on my research i see most ABAPers with 5-7 YoE being paid around 12-17 lpa. (This is based on data from people i talked to in similar roles).

I'm a bit confused whether ABAP would be a good career option or should i try switching to Java Spring or Big data.

What are your views about ABAP opportunities compared to other tech stacks.

Curious to hear from people with med school debt: what is the best way to finance med school? Is taking on student debt a big deal if you get a high-paying job after school?

But he worked all through his undergrad degree and saved sine I was paying for the major expenses, so I kind of feel like this is his thing to take on now. AITA?
