I’ve been activity looking for new paralegal roles but my last position was working in the public sector. Some have told me that it’s a pro, others have said that it’s a con. I’m largely applying for positions in the private sector now, and I’ve found that I don’t have many of the entry level skills like e-filing that employers expect. Is there any alternative to taking on a role that is completely entry-level to gain those?

Hey fishes,

I have a question. Currently I'm working in Mindtree as a Infrastructure Engineer and basically there is nothing much technical in it.

I am very much interested in cloud and Devops and currently started learning about it as well.

I just wanted to know, how much tough it would be for me to switch from a support role to Devops role? (I am having 14 months of experience)

P.S. kindly provide me 11 likes to unlock DM feature.

Hi everyone

I'm in a business development role based in Asia. May I get your thoughts/pointers on the CAIA?

I'm aware that the CAIA is not as popular in Asia compared to the CFA. From my knowledge, there are no CAIA holders in my current firm within the Asian region, despite dealing with alternative investments.

Would be happy to hear your thoughts regarding the CAIA, and study tips if you have any!

Have anyone attended an Executive MBA while wiling to migrate from Accenture / Big 4 to MBB?


I’ve been doing tech consulting(big4) for the last 8 years in states(no mba), 4 in the offshore center(non big4) in India. Recently I applied for a tech program manager role in the industry, and the recruiter feedback was that me resume is not technical enough and it’s not product centric. I know I used the internal (consulting focused) resume but any pointers in creating a tech/product focused resume.


I am starting to feel like I’ve outgrown where I am at. I have less than a year of experience doing Program Analyst / Team Lead work and about 10 years in USMC logistics / supply chain / maintenance but feel like I’d like to move to management or supervisor roles. I would also like to stay remote (2 years remote). Any advice for the current landscape? Is it time to move out of fed contracts? Where do I start?
