I am starting a business in RPA (robotic process automation). I know what companies have paid consulting firms to get the job done in projects I’ve done for them. I also know what companies generally pay employees to do it.
So, colleagues admitted to me yesterday that they hadn’t seen the Childish Gambino Video. We are a digital company. How can you not when it has been in the news and we work in this industry?

Any nurses here transition completely out of healthcare and into tech and hit $150k with their first tech job? I have my associate in nursing with 10 years of hospital experience. Im trying to figure out if I should get a bachelors in computer science or just get a certificate in my preferred area of computer science. I want tech companies to take me seriously and want to crack $150k with my first job. My nursing job now pays 130k. What area of tech would even pay that much as a newbie?

My company’s SOP template has a table of contents and a section at the top where the SOP owner is supposed to add a short statement containing the “Why” of the SOP, meaning a statement about what the SOP is supposed to solve for/ accomplish. A co-worker recently told me that it should also contain a checklist of the 4-5 main points of what the team member should know how to do after reading the SOP…. This seems really redundant to me. Thoughts?
