Does it make sense to pursue an MBA if I work for the IRS? No real plan to move in private yet, but would like to have that option down the road. Thoughts?

Nope.

Do you have your CPA? I'd say no to an MBA while at the IRS. If you find an employer where it's strongly encouraged then they will usually have a program for partial reimbursement. Also, yo IRS man. Just had my interview for revenue agent this week. How long does HR usually wait to let you know next steps or if you're no longer being considered?

That is so strange! I was offered GS13 step 1 for LB&I. 4 yrs experience and also CPA. You should see if they can reevaluate you. I just interviewed for SBSE so not sure yet the pay grade. But with gov jobs I know it’s generally lower salary but need to weigh benefits

Interested to hear how people learn project management. I have done PRINCE2 exam and read PMP materials, but I find these are too textbook theory based.

I believe you can learn these things on the job, but I am keen to expedite this with some books or courses. Are there any resources that are particularly helpful?

Hi. I'm a fresh MBA graduate from IIT-B with no prior work experience. This Covid has taken a toll on the opportunities for fresh graduates and I'm looking out for people who could guide me or refer me for the same. I have 9 months internship experience across marketing and operations domain and 6 months experience of running my own business which I had to close down. I've been a freelance Content writer and event organizer as well. It'd be really helpful if you could help me with this. Thanks.

Anyone else feel like their actual work is very disconnected from their paycheck? If I do a great job and create a ton of value for the client I’ll get a maximum of a 15% TC increase YOY (much less due to covid). Similarly if I do the absolute minimum it’s really hard to be fired since I’m in a hot market and they can’t decrease my TC without cutting my base pay (which I’m 99% sure they won’t do). And my raise/bonus won’t even necessarily be indicative of my performance anyways.
