No, I looked into a couple years ago and did some practice questions. Didn’t seem too bad, following because I’m curious to see what others say!

Following as well. Feel like it’s a great time to get a certification

Should I just quit the legal field?

I am currently working as an RN and looking to switch into consulting.

Hey FishBowl Friends, so I’m currently trying to break into tech sales/FinTech and I feel that due to my previous work history, I might not look like the ideal candidate on paper but I’m an extremely fast learner and very coachable. I’ve been a manger at a gym, got my degree in finance, worked as a client advisor at a top 3 auto dealer in the nation and now I’m a project manager at a solar company. I really want something that’s remote and steady, any recommendations on how to spruce myself up?
