Has anyone gone moved to from finance to tech and enjoyed/regretted it? Lost my job to covid and my options right now are between a vba developer for a large asset management firm (creating dashboards) and a QA engineer for a start up (I can code quite well). Is this goodbye to Finace if I take up the latter?

I spoke to a Senior Manager earlier today and she told me they are looking to hire experienced and qualified candidates who have the below requirements: 1) Bachelor’s degree 2) CPA certification 3) 3-7 years of Accounting or Audit experience 100% remote. Then, post COVID traveling will vary. Please, if you meet the above requirements or know someone who does and is interested in joining Deloitte send me a private message. I will have you send your resume and I will forward to Senior Manager.

Some of my friends who are parents said they're not worried about covid because it's very low risk for children. They know I'm a teacher and that I'm in a high-risk category. Makes me feel like they don't care about me.

I would like to keep it positive and upbeat. Ideas/suggestions welcome!

With all of the new privacy laws coming in related to restricting Personally Identifiable Information (PII) via GDPR and CCPA, I'm finding lots of difficulty in managing what data to keep and how, while also making sure we still have access to necessary data to make business decisions and insights. Problems typically revolve around assigning access, figuring out ETL processes that don't store/display PII, and looking at analytics w/o PII. How have you handled this at your company?
