I’m closing in on 3 YOE (1 as a Senior), is it worth it to get Sec+ or CISM as certs at this point or should I just gun for CISSP? Hoping to get some certs under my belt but don’t want to dedicate time to one that won’t matter/increase market value should I choose to exit someday. Only thing I have right now is my work experience, no cyber-related certs.

An agency I’m interested in is hiring. I have a connection there who said the GCD’s are looking at my book and should reach out soon. Should I still apply through the website? I feel like it would be a bit much if I did at this point. Any thoughts?

Long story short… I went through all rounds of the interview process with ss&c for an implementation consultant role. Was told they started a hiring freeze and someone would reach out when it is lifted…. It’s been a few months now and I’m curious if anyone has insight or info on the freeze? The role was for chorus bpm consultant.

Hi guys I need to switch my job and I'm looking for entry level opportunities in finance or marketing (Delhi NCR or Bangalore preferably) . Any leads or referral will mean a lot.
Why’s it called FAANG and not like FAMAG or something? In my opinion I hardly ever find anyone who’s able to switch into Netflix whereas Microsoft is still a top tier tech firm and is always hiring undergrads and even non tech folks
Just joined NetSuite as Solution Consultant. Anyone able to share their career path from this role and where the experience can transition into!

Considering a transition to data analytics/data analyst/IT type roles. Anyone make the switch from accounting without extensive prior knowledge in these areas? Currently enrolling in EdX courses to confirm interest and get a baseline level of skill. Also trying to consider whether it’ll mean a significant pay cut or not. Fwiw, 3+ years experience in forensics, CPA, all that jazz. Input/experiences are appreciated!

I had an interview last week. The interviewer asked me whether I was apply for other jobs as well & how it was going. After the interview I felt like I shouldn’t have disclosed so much information. I shared that I have been actively applying for other jobs but that I haven’t gotten many responses. And that in the meantime I’ve been focusing on developing myself (finished reading PMBOK, taking LinkedIn Learning PM course, etc). Should I have said this? Now they know I don’t have many options 🤦🏾♀️.
I applied to an open role with an internal referral almost a month ago. Is Amazon one of the companies who you can just never hear from at all? My status still says “application submitted” and I’m just wondering what experiences others on here have had with Amazon.
Can anyone here familiar with FDM Group shed more light on their contracts and operations? All I know about them is that their pay is grossly under market value even as a junior developer in training. Also you are locked into a 2 year contract in which you have to pay them should you leave for a higher paying job for example.
Does this group also have a non-compete which prevents you from working a second job should you need more money?

I’ve heard some anecdotal stories about consultants leaving MBB and starting their own consulting LLC catering to PE (either doing diligence or other strategy work) and that it can be quite lucrative. Has anyone in this bowl done it who can share lessons learned, the basic economics, and watch outs? I’m curious about exploring the real details further as the autonomy appeals given my current stage of life.
Anyone recently start at Guidehouse but got bait and switched? Was hired as a technical BA but now being told I’ll be PMO. I should’ve listened to you all about this place.
Decided to get my MBA later than most. Joined MBB after, but found the post-MBA role a lot more junior than I was expecting. I want to jump to a BizOps, strategy, or project management role somewhere else. What levels should I be targeting? I have 1 year of MBB but 10 yoe total In project management and internal strategy
Do I need to have MBA to get into MBB?
I got an offer that includes base, bonus and equity of 80k each year, fully vested each quarter. I’ve never had equity before, does this mean every quarter they just give me 20k worth of stock I can sell? Or is it a pre determined number of shares that could be less than the 80k I was told. I feel like there’s gotta be a catch here I’m missing and im not just gonna pocket 80k (minus taxes) each year on top of base/bonus

Just received a job offer with a 40% pay bump. They've given me 3 k more than I even asked for, and there is a 15% yearly bonus. I would like tips on negotiation, even though to be honest I'm quite pleased with the offer. Already asked about sign on bonus, and they don't do that.
