Hi all,

Set to graduate this May in BS, Management Information Systems and debating on adding a Business Analytics Cert (would have to take two extra classes tho)

Would the Business Analytics certificate be worth my time and will it attract employers?

What role are you aiming for once you graduate? If it’s in Business Analytics then definitely go for it, 2 classes isn’t much. However, if it’s not the field you want to enter then no.

I am an IS major but took the cybersecurity route so it really depends what you want to do.

I haven’t totally decided yet. My coursework primarily specializes in the app development route but if for whatever reason that doesn’t work out, I can fall back on business analytics. Both are what I’m interested in at the moment.

Also, how competitive are roles in app development for IS majors, especially against CS majors?

Hi guys,

I switched 20 days back to Optum. I have 7 years of experience working as a full stack Engineer, who is passionate working on both front end and back end on latest technologies. But my project is working only on back end with 10 years old tech stack. There is no front end work at all. What should I do?
I don't like working here at all, but I am not sure whether moving out again in a month will give bad Impression on my resume. Hence please give me advice on this situation
