Does having a PMP certification hold any water in digital media? Do folks care? I’ve been using PMI resources to help solve problems / improve stuff at my org, and I’m tempted to get the full cert but I’m not sure if it’d actually mean anything / have a meaningful impact on my career or pay.
It’s not a huge investment in time or money but if it doesn’t have much of an impact I’d rather just keep reading free resources online on my own time
Do anybody know or have, an opportunity for me. I just recently graduated. with my MBA degree in, Business Administration. Thanks in advance.
Ex healthcare workers in Tech/Sales Engineering/ Healthcare consulting;
I have my masters in nursing/FNP (1 yr) making <K70 (Indiana) due to low patient census in my role. No desire for a different FNP job nor to return to bedside nursing (RN 5 yrs). I have heard of some individuals with remote positions making >K100 with little to no experience in tech or consulting after doing a boot camp or cert?

Are there aspects / outcomes of interviews that matter more than others? Just had an interview with a T10 where I think I nailed the why MBA, why this school, how you’ll contribute, etc., but the delivery on some of my behavioral questions was pretty meh.
Still think it went ok overall, but hoping that’s not an automatic ding. Student led interview for context.

"Data Scientist", Azure shop, 5y experience. Been stuck doing python dev/client team augmentation for the last 18 months (several clients).
So demotivated+disillusioned, does anyone in consulting actually do DS projects? - this is the same reason I left my last role, 6 months of interesting work and then endless dev work. Predictive models are dangled just out of reach to stop us quitting.
No longer feel qualified to apply for actual DS roles outside because I've not done any ML in so long.
So I got furloughed...with notice that I am 99% likely to be placed on a PIPwhen I return. They basically said by this point either you get it or you don't, and apparently I'm not getting it.

Enrolled in Stern for a few weeks.
The number of the alumni and current students that go to top consulting firms FT& summer intern are countless even for a small class size.
Stern is way more than a finance school. Given its location, do you want to spend your 2 years in a rural area or heart of Manhattan? Location is almost everything for business school. (I have a friend in Cornell that frequently travels about 5 hours to NYC for events.)

Why do you need an MBA to do this? Your management consulting experience is and should be enough to get you there. Not trying to be a hard ass, just be ready to answer that question because people may ask you later-
Don’t waste money on MBA if you’re goal is TS at Big 4
Depends on what it is within Transaction advisory... this could certainly make sense to pivot into a Deals Advisory or Deals Strategy/CDD role. But coming from management consulting? Agree that moving into a FDD or Valuation group wouldn’t make sense
If Transaction advisory is your goal, get your CPA and you should be good to recruit.
I think rather than FDD the OP meant transaction advisory like Big 4 M&A consulting, DDV, or Corporate Finance
Lol. Dude, you would probably get it if you applied now.
