Anyone here ever gone back to school while working as an associate? I’ve always wanted to practice for a few years and then move into academia. I’m at the point where I’m ready to start working toward that transition and am considering doing an online PhD while I keep my role as an associate. Anyone done this or something similar? If so, what online program (university) did you do (attend) and what was your area of study?

I need to buy and entire wardrobe. 2020 grad here. I’ve been remote this whole time so I don’t know what to expect as far as dress code. I read our handbook but it doesn’t really help me understand expectations. I’d like to keep my bold style (patterns, colors, unique pieces) and I’m a creative in NYC, so can I get away with it? How about hair and makeup- is it an expectation to be fully “put together”? Oh & shoes, heels a must? Any advice appreciated, super nervous about being perceived again.

Are people still leaving Deloitte? Left earlier in the year right around when the bonus hit and a few others left around the same time as me. Wondering if things are all calmed down now and has reached some form of steady state w.r.t. staff turnover.

I noticed most of my interviews were very similar with a combo of hypothetical and behavioral. No clear distinction overall but maybe some subtlety in a couple of questions.
Question: The company that you are working for offers cloud managed services and has been approached by a potential client. What are some areas (or red flags) you would consider before responding to their RFP? ( I started putting together a response but would love to get your insights) Answer: 1) Understanding of current annual spending vs spending if they adopted our cloud services 2) Clients expected growth rate 3) Regulatory requirements depending on industry (medical, fed etc)
That time of the year when you've been maxing the 401k all year and finally hit the limit. The extra bread in your paycheck feels like a fake bonus.
Wonder if anyone can offer advice on which cert to pursue next? I obtained my CompTIA Security+ last year and wondering if I should go for the CySA+ or Pentest+ next. I also have my AWS CCP and will be sitting for the Solutions Architect soon as well. Currently not doing security stuff at work but would love to keep my skills going. I was hoping one of these next certs will help me finally break into a security role and love the idea of pentesting but not sure if the CySA+ is more beneficial.
