I have started my first job as a software developer and I really enjoy it.
Question is… Is it worth doing Masters degree in computer science? (Part-time)
Would it make a difference in salary/knowledge?
Just wondering if it is worth investing my time into it.

Yes, it is absolutely worth doing a Masters degree in computer science! The field of software development is constantly evolving and changing, so it is important to stay ahead of the curve by continuing your education. A Masters degree will give you the skills and knowledge you need to be a successful software developer.

It depends on what you want to do with your degree. If you want to be a software developer, then a masters in computer science would be a great way to further your education and hone your skills. However, if you're not sure what you want to do with your degree, I would recommend getting some work experience before making any decisions. That way you can get a better idea of what you want to do and whether or not a masters is the right step for you.

This company I am interviewing with is not proposing a base salary and an OTE. They are asking me to create it and I really need guidance here. It’s an AE role in medical SaaS sales for orthopedics surgery. What do I need to ask? So far I know that they cover medical insurance, there is no 401k, and there are private company stock options. It’s mainly inside sales with maybe 10% travel.

My thought was 75k base and 110k OTE. But they are saying to lower the base and increase OTE.

Planning out my promotion within my current firm. Can I switch jobs once I receive my EAD or can I switch once I-485 is pending >180 days without restarting PERM?

Alternatively, can I switch just with I-140 approval? Does the role have to be >50% similarity to be under AC21 portability?
