Hey guys,

Quick question:

Please suggest from the POV of a digital agency recruiter:

I am a performance-focussed digital marketer with 8 yrs of experience. I have run my agency and worked in large agencies like Dentsu Aegis, in lndia.

I got to work with 100+ businesses in different industries across multiple countries, in my tenure till now.

I am now in Canada and on Student Visa till April, after which I'll be on work permit.

Should I begin applying for jobs now or wait out?

Thank you!

Looking for recommendations on financial modeling courses (paid) that I can take for 3 statements/operating model, valuations, M&A, & LBO.

I’m thinking doing a modeling course will help with the no modeling experience + update my technicals? Thanks.

Hi fishes.

I have an offer from Oracle. The designation mentioned in offer letter is "Member Technical Staff." In the email it was also mentioned as "Senior Software Developer". But I interviewed for Senior Automation QA. Does my job role match my designation?

I asked the recruiter and he said Senior Automation QA and Senior Software Developer are given the same designation. I'm worried if my work will be different from what I am experienced in due to the designation. Can anyone clarify?
