I have been told I should try Cloud engineer or SA roles. Ideally I would like to leverage my business, technical writing experience along with the newly acquired AWS skills/certs. Any guidance? TIA!

Deloitte laid off CM analyst and consultants .. tech adoption / digital enablement. A recruiter contacted me about a role that states a plus for knowing Deloitte CM method and Change Scout. It is a contractor to hire position. 100% remote now and possibly future. Company is Cleveland, OH. DM me and I can send you the deets. Rate is too low for me.
