Just general advice: reach out to alumni of your bootcamp, alumni of your uni (if you went to a traditional uni prior to bootcamp), start on Leetcode, reach out to people with your desired job title on Linkedin and ask for an informational interview and some pointers and go from there

Thanks for that advice! I have to work on the Leet code questions more. I have been reaching out to Alumni’s and people on LinkedIn for informational interviews and I have received some valuable advice and even referrals. I’m hoping I will land my first role in tech very soon.

Then why didn't Arthur Anderson in accounting and audit business especially what I have learnt that it was largest among the big 5 at that time?

Hey all! We have a candidate we're considering for a management position. One of our partners found a news story about him from a few years ago that's negative, though not necessarily awful. It was a small-town-gossipy local news story about his solo business, but all the comments on it from locals said he's a great guy and very professional. Anyways, this partner would like me to question the candidate about this news story. I'm curious how anyone else would approach this? Any suggestions?

I’m a midlevel lateral but retooled so I feel like a 1st/2nd year (I have little to no experience in the new practice area). People assume I know how to do something but I have a million questions and I really do want to learn & do a good job. How do I remind partners/seniors that I need more training without hurting my reputation? I’m also afraid to delegate down because I don’t know how to explain things/I don’t know what I’m looking for

At what point does the value of a degree fall off? I'm in my early 30s, and have five years of experience, and work on a very theoretically interesting project. I believe I'm on track to promotion in the next year. So, I could put in a year of full time school to check the box off, but I'd be sacrificing hobbies and social life (not to mention cost). Is this FOMO or is there real opportunity here?

Constantly anxious at this job.
