What type of consulting leads towards working at a Hedge Fund? I found I love doing analysis but I do it as a hobby and I’m mostly self taught. My background is manufacturing, engineering, and technology. I have a MBA but my business skills in Finance, Accounting, etc. are definitely my weakness. I’m really good at picking stocks because of my background even though my business skills are not as strong. Maybe I’m thinking about this wrong. Any help is appreciated.
What are some post MBA job opportunities for those looking to stay in healthcare? I’m aware of the leadership programs from big pharma, but haven’t seen too much else

I work in a Rep Services Call Center for an Insurance/ Investment Company. Currently I'm pursuing my MBA at Western Governors University and I plan to get my Series 7 after my MBA so I can get out of the Call Center and advance my career.

Pretty serious Windows DNS vulnerability. Fix seems pretty easy. https://us-cert.cisa.gov/ncas/current-activity/2020/07/14/microsoft-addresses-wormable-rce-vulnerability-windows-dns-server#Cyber
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
One of my personal goals this year is to become certified. SHRM seems to be the most popular option, and I'd love to hear your suggestions! Thank you in advance!
Are you supposed to save up for an MBA or do most people finance it with loans? I have loans from UG too.

I need a vacation 😩
Best IRA to roll over my 401k into? And why?
Ladies, I’ve noticed (pre-covid) that when men introduced each other or even when they enter the room they always shake hands with each other - even if they’ve known them/worked with them for months. But for myself, I may get a handshake on first day but never again. And I find it annoying like do you not think of me as your equal or do you think because I’m a woman I want a hug?? Has anyone else noticed this, or am I taking this the wrong way?
Those of you who have had their companies go from a certain number of days PTO to unlimited PTO, did you actually take more days off after the change or were you pressured to take less? Company and service line would be helpful but not necessary
I feel like I can’t redeem my career. I’ve been out of paying work since I graduated. My bar was delayed due to a medical problem and since then I’ve only been able to find volunteering. I’ve been working for free for 2 years now. My network is tapped, my mentors are confused why I can’t find anything, my law school’s career services actually gave up on me, I don’t have the money to move to a new place, I have no other support and I can’t even go back to retail because nobody’s hiring out here.
Should I stop depositing into my 401k?
Advice needed! I was laid off in Jan and since then I’ve been building my own practice (which I started last year and was doing on the side). Since Covid happened, work has been a lot slower so I started applying for jobs. I got two job offers in these past couple weeks, but the problem is that neither is in the area I want to practice, though the experience from one of them would be probably useful in the future. Ultimately I want to have my own practice, but my dilemma is that as a 3rd (cont.)

What is your least favorite kind of client?
Do you usually lie about your current salary when negotiating with a new employer? And by how much, 10% 20%? I resent the fact that I am even being asked. What I currently make is irrelevant.
I currently am trying to take two days off, got a mediation statement from OC, naturally I had to read it, and then I emailed the partner offering to do any follow up on the statement tomorrow. Lawyers trying to take time off… what a joke. anyone else have this problem?? Amazingly partner replied enjoy your time off and we’ll circle around Wednesday
Considering leaving hectic agency to an in house creative team at a relatively unknown tech startup. I’ll get a significant raise and a better work environment but still on the fence. Thoughts?
Negotiated 130k from 115k strategy comp with 3 yoe in econ consulting, and then got an offer from Palantir for 250k as a deployment strategist. Non tech background so this is a lot of $ for me but feel strong towards going to strategy for a year then go to tech. I see a ton of value in strategy cons exp in terms of learning about business problems and being in the room w decision makers. Facing a ton of pressure (mostly from parents to go to pltr for the money) to take pltr. Stressed abt this
What would you say is the shortest acceptable (wouldn’t raise questions) tenure in tech?
