The CFE is extremely easy. Get the practice questions and power through them once or twice. There should be about 200-300 practice questions for each section (4 sections in total).

See a lot of comp posts from consultants - have any of you considered enterprise technology sales? Certainly a different job that requires different knowledge/skills but I see parallels/ think a consultant could do well in sales if they’re okay with a lot of rejection. The pay seems similar (my OTE is about 400k; 8 YoE, individual contributor) but I imagine the hours are better and it can be fun if you like solving customer problems, to challenge customers, and building relationships
