This is the dream! I legit give the best feedback to the seniors who manage me, lol! I have a lot going on and a lot of client commitments that my seniors don’t see. Basically if you’re my senior and are trustworthy I am 100% happy to let you run with it.

That’s what a good senior does

As senior I think it’s important to steer your manager to the areas you need help with. Some engagements it could be report prep, some it could be complex work sections, or sometimes it could be communication with client on sensitive issues.

I recently shifted my career from data analytics to strategy and feel very passionate about this field. I would love to continue growing down this path, but I’m uncertain of what next steps are, specially to continue working in tech. Would love to hear what your career path has been and if you feel like an MBA is needed in order to keep growing. Thanks!

Thinking outside the box: need H1B renewal stamping, eligible for Dropbox in my home country. However, going there is still risky in case of a 221g and consulates closed. Can I send my passport to my home country through a friend for Dropbox stamping? Once the stamping is done, I can travel to home country (after they courier my passport back) Is this possible or am I going crazy?
