Currently preparing to take the principal and superintendent certification tests. Are there any suggestions for great leadership books or pd for actual day-to-day roles/interactions?

I’m not sure about PD but I have heard that the test manual you can buy on Amazon is great. I have one but have not opened it. I need to take this exam, as well.

Hi Guys, Please help 🥺
I've joined ibm during Feb 2022 and assigned to a project on March.
I'm ABAP developer but doing data validation production support for one of the big client.
I don't like the work and also can say my tech lead is not happy for my deliverables.

Need advice on how to get a release from the project which I've worked for 4 months. And also wanted to know would this impact career in IBM?..

Thank you.


I’ve been a data analyst for a little over a year for my current employer. I manage databases, input new information, solve issues utilizing root-cause analysis, and I maintain reports on a daily basis. The only thing I don’t do is work with coding such a SQL. I’m currently enrolled in Coursera Google Data Analytics Certification to learn more about SQL.
I want to get a job in data analytics that uses SQL. How do I show that I know SQL without having direct SQL related work experience?


Hi everybody,

Looking for some insight/curious to hear how others would handle this situation:

I have an offer I want to accept; I was trying to negotiate for a signing bonus… but they’re not budging.

The issue is, the start date is in a month and I’m up for a promotion in a week at my current company. I would like to leave before I get promoted, I think it would be pretty low of me to accept and promptly quit.

Not the new employer’s problem? Or can/should I try to leverage this?


This job market is insane right now.

Now, with all of these layoffs... employers have the upper hand, and it's super competitive to land the job.

I work full time as a senior manager (L7) at Amazon. I've passed one the hardest interview that Amazon has to be a part of the executive team.

I started coaching on the side and really fell in love with it. I've helped a ton of people land their dream job!

If you need a career coach or help with prepping for your next interview. DM me or comment!


Wondering if a full time MBA still makes sense at my age/ current comp. Applying to programs this fall and would be 31 at matriculation. Current base salary is $75k. Is it still worth it at this point to leave the workforce for 2 years/ will the long term ROI still be worth it? Current post MBA goal would be a leadership development rotational program and wondering if I’ll be pinned as “too old” at 33.

Graduating from part-time MBA in May, have been working as a product manager in tech for 2 years and prior to that 5 years in BI/data analytics. I’m at a new company now and I’m disliking PM more every day. I’m thinking about doing JIT recruiting for investment banking to get strategic finance jobs in tech in 1-2 years but we’re having a baby in August. Is it stupid to try to pull off a pivot like that? I value WLB and want to be able to take paternity leave when our daughter is born

Over the last few months my job work load has increased to helping more teams and I have been brought on to be a major voice on a product transition (I am one of three non managers helping make the decision and have more responsibility on the project then half the managers. The company is global (30+ teams)) and I can see that it will increase over the next months. The company I work for is known for not promoting internally easy. Anyone have any advice on how to make the transition easier?

Need advice on what to do when you have a new partner and feel like it’s already not working out? I feel like I have to micro manage them or be their manager in general to make sure they get what we need done. But that is not my job. We should both on top of our tasks individually. If I don’t say something to them it seems like things don’t get done. Which in the end can make me look bad. Also realizing we just don’t have the same taste in things which will effect our work. Idk am I being crazy?
