How to get into cloud? I am stuck in a project that is not giving me the opportunity to learn more technologies. I do want to learn more cloud but only have the associate as dev cert and its expiring soon. I am looking for new opportunities and am curious if I should go for reach positions where cloud related tech is forefront vs positions where my main skill is forefront(java).

Deloitte didn't give me a chance to pursue cloud projects so I studied on my own time and forced cloud onto my projects and now I'm headed to a cloud provider!

Easy - you get on a plane and soar to the clouds ☁️ 🙂 Ok now the serious response - best approach is to self learn about technologies and the principles. LinkedIn learning is a good place to start. I suggest you reach out to a M or SM in the cloud practice and ask them what tools and skills are important from their perspective. Then take the time and effort to learn those things. This will at a minimum get you eligible for work in the cloud practice, and hopefully some project will take the bet on you and let you get hands on experience. Good luck!

Hands on experience in your own tear lab. Build practical cloud networks that you use. Want to impress me....set up a VPN from your home network to a cloud provider and then do some custom threat hunting or drift detection on your home network using biquery, gcs and cloud functions. From there....call your company's and ask them for tech help here and there. Once people see what you are working on....you will get pulled over to the cloud group. Voila....you are now I'm a cloud group and you will have real experience instead of paper certs and no real experience.

You can self study for a AWS cloud practitioner pretty easily. Once you have that you can tackle cert after cert

@SPM1 But what services do you actually provide after just getting the certs?

I was able to network and segue into it. Got the solutions architect cert for AWS and pinged all our cloud people. Try reaching out to folks in the practice and getting certified. Good luck!

Hi, all the tax professionals here. I have a question. My client started a business to develop a new formula in year 2013. The business failed and my client decided to abandon the business in year 2019. During year 2013 and 2018, no loss or expenses were claimed on the return. Can he claim all the loss/ expenses on year 2019 return. If yes, what the tax code or regulation can apply to this case? I appreciate your insights.

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
