Hi All, Am a developer mainly working with SQL and I want to move to AWS (devops), so I started to learn & practice few tools such as terraform, saltstack, prometheus, etc. But I do not have hands on a live project, any ideas if companies would take in beginners in AWS ? Even though there are cloud projects in my domain it is a bit difficult to get into those projects as my lead & manager give me the standard answer "you're a critical resource for our project" :( Any advice guys ? YOE: 4.10

Hey everyone! Anybody working in AWS or have recently applied? I have an interview coming up for a Senior Client Lead Recruiter position. I’d like to get any insights on the position, interview process and the Total Compensation please? The levels online don’t seem to match, maybe that is not accurate for Canada?

Do you keep your automatic replies internal only, or do you use for external (aka client) emails, as well? I’ve gone both ways but have noticed increasing trend to keep internal only. I have a classic situation coming up where my project was delayed, so it is now overlapping with vacation. I am very tempted to go 100% off email (colleagues/clients have my cell) but wondering if this will reflect poorly on me and the firm.
Bain🐠, do ANY of y’all know experienced hires that got into your firm pre-MBA (no advanced degree)? These mythical creatures, or rather unicorns that are rare but possible?
I just need to vent. I am so sick of dealing with one of my coworkers. He has been a thorn in my side since I started working at my new job. He thinks he is the boss, despite the CEO telling him he's not the boss. He wastes 90% of his time micro-managing me instead of doing his own job. He intentionally alters my work after it was finalized, without telling anyone. He lies to everybody and nobody here likes him. The CEO won't get rid of him, nobody knows why. I love my job, but can't stand him.

Interesting. Let’s see if the uptick In cases continues to drive an uptick in hospitalizations and then in fatalities. Depends on how many of the cases are incidental or in very young people not prone to severe cases. But either way, look at the hospital capacity utilization figures! This is the untold story. Were we bending the curve to avoid unnecessary deaths due to overcrowded hospitals, or were we bending the curve to buy time for treatments and vaccine, or just to slow fatalities?
I’m about to be a second year and have a core utilization of 75% (adjusted 85%). Is this really low? Is it something I could potentially get fired for? No bad reviews, and the low utilization was due
