Hi! I'm curious about tips for breaking into cyber security/IT consulting after graduation; I'm currently a college junior/KPMG tax intern set to graduate w/ an Accounting & Finance double bachelor's. Would a Master's in data science or computer science help my job prospects, or would it be better to pursue cyber security/IT certifications? How can I apply/relate current accounting experience (tax) to a resume geared towards cyber security?

Thanks.

Hello, I am currently a valuations analyst for a large reit. I am looking to either make the switch into the real estate development side or pivot into project finance related to renewables. The renewables side interests me and I feel young enough in my career to make the move. My background is real estate finance. I would love to hear from some other analysts/associates on their experience in renewables. I would also like to hear why some of you chose to get into the space. Thanks!
