Hey Sharks,
I need some guidance on my career path.
I am a full stack developer with IBM serving notice period.
Tech stack is JAVA/SpringB/ Micros/Angular/ GCP.
I got an offer from Citi Bank / Wells Fargo which is a backend role only.
Now I got offer from JPMC but the tech stack is different, Its for Infrastructure team and technology does not have JAVA.
Its for React/ Node JS/ Python.
Also my biggest concern is it worth switching to JPMC for an infrastructure team and for a diff tech. YOE 9.

Planning to exit consulting to start an Ed tech venture that I am really passionate about. Have been doing this startup silently but not 100% involved because I have a full-time consulting job that takes up most of my time. However I have been able to acquire customers and generate revenues to support operational expenses. I can envision that I can scale this up but hesitating because I have bills to pay and if I spend 5-6 more years here I might become a partner. Would love to get your thougjts

However, they are interviewing me for C# .NET in Consumer, Technology & Utility. Through consultancy they mentioned C1 BU. They are insisting me to appear for this profile despite my skillset mismatch.

How are the projects in C1 BU? Are these legacy projects built on ASP or have other tech stacks as well? Any input on tech stack and business unit?

I have been with my company for almost 8 years. I wasn’t certified when I started but I have been now for about a year. It wasn’t required before. I learned that my coworker who has been with us less than a year and had no prior experience in healthcare makes very close to the same amount I do.

Has anyone on here suffered with scalp psoriasis and had success treating it? I've struggled with it for a few years, and I found that the last few months it has just gotten horrible. My scalp will start flaking the day after I wash it and I can visibly see large flakes in my hair - and I'm sure other people can too. It's getting embarassing and not sure what to do other than medication which I've heard can cause hair loss. I've tried ACV rinses and tea tree oil, but no real results.

My clients are pushing back on it this year, and I can't say I blame them. If I were in their shoes, I'd rather take the risk of not filing than the expense of filing again. From my own point of view, I don't really want to spend my time on such returns, either, even if the revenue and easy return are nice.
