Hey all, would love some advice. I’m a Business Analyst with 5 YOE and minimal technical skills. And I’m really unhappy where I’m at. Very underpaid, and feel like I’m limited in job opportunities. I want to become more technical but no idea where to even start! I was thinking about starting with a certification but most seems really tough to learn as a newbie. Any guidance/advice on which certs to look at? Was thinking AWS cloud practitioner as a starting point? Any help welcomed!!
Would you say I am jumpy/a hopper if I move to corporate after one year out of mba at consulting...I am trying to apply for jobs now...not sure about any lead though

Extremely niche question: >1YOE and finally realizing I really want to work in corporate development for a consumer chemicals company (Estee Lauder, Shiseido, etc).
