I am relatively new to networking and IT but I have been learning quickly and have worked my way into networking from helpdesk within a year. What would be the best steps (education, experience) to make it into big tech?

Find a specific product (e.g. F5, SonicWall, Palo Alto, or macos, Linux, windows) and have a good general working knowledge of it. Better if it's something you can interact daily in a production setting and then expound from there. Find that what you enjoy working on and then pursue specialization with it .

Hi,
I’m 26 and currently work as a E-commerce Exec in travel. I want to change my job and move into tech for more of a challenge and salary raise. I’ve been looking in roles such as Product Manager/Project Manager. I don’t have experience in this field at all. I’m looking at using my transferable skills. Can anyone offer any advice on how to look for the right role or do I need some further qualifications? Thanks!

Would like to have some tips on how to work with some of my Indian co-workers - observing this behavior predominately with them so suspect it is cultural- I tend to get last minute meeting invites (like 20 mins before) and the meeting room would be very empty so no conclusion can likely be reach. Then the colleagues would just drop this matter until he/she was probed to solve again.

Curious about what people think of reviews on platforms like Airbnb Uber etc, does anyone actually give them anymore? I feel like there was a baseline of reviews given in the early days and now if given the choice, people will always skip them. What if it was a review for something more substantial, like rating a client you’ve worked with on a 6 month contract?
