Go for it. U have a offer. U can think of specialization later. A role does not end ur career. U will find several opportunities. Dnt kno where this one can take u. Keep ur eyes n ears open for new experiences n u will know eventually what u want to do and take ur career

OnPrem or cloud?

Echoing A1, you may want to figure out more about the role and make sure it will have a strong trajectory with everything going cloud based at a rapid speed.

Why do you feel such an urge to specialize ASAP? Being completely honest, picking a specialization without knowing why can hinder your career path. Sure, maybe short-term bandaid for your needs, but doesn’t sound healthy in the long run

Is this as a tester or management? My impression is there are a lot of job opportunities (as long as you keep up skills) but would hit a pay ceiling that could be much lower than other areas of consulting.

Curious what they offered you for this role? I was looking into it but never heard back

Question. I have an older friend who was newly contracted through an off brand firm who lost their contract for the NCS. They are offering him a transfer to the winner of the contract, but for a lesser salary (they said he's too expensive). They said he could also instead transfer to an independent contractor, for a 30-35% increase in salary, but no benefits or paid leave etc. Hourly salary, but much higher wage as a trade off. He's nearing retirement and doesn't care as much about benefits.
