Very good; these are some of the top coders in the world. Comp is better than PM; usually it works out where SWE comp at level X roughly equals PM comp at level X+1.

"Very good" at solving interview questions. General software engineering and technical interview questions are relatively removed from each other.

It’s honestly not as hard as people think, but you do need to grind LC (not similar at all really to what I learned as a CS major) Practicing tagged questions helps ;)

Good enough that you wouldn't ever question whether you were qualified

Lol no, there's a lot of luck too. If you get an interviewer that just doesn't want to work with you, you might not pass no matter how well you know your stuff, etc. Can very occasionally work the other way where someone gets asked really easy questions too.

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.

Mother superannuated today and was able to watch her farewell speech. Feeling very emotional (i.e. tearing up at midday) as I recall our humble beginnings and how much my middle class family has sacrificed and achieved. My parents sent their only daughter for higher education abroad and it is tough to see them grow old. Getting exposed to so many new facets of life as a 25F…. just one of those days. Kind words only please 🙏
