I recently graduated with a degree in Finance but feel like I want to work in a tech related role and wish I would’ve gotten a CS degree. I work at a SaaS company built on Salesforce and was wondering if certifications would be enough to be considered? I’m looking at Business Analyst or Product Mgmt

I also graduated with a BBA and now work in tech.

-I had 3 tech internships while in school. If you’re still in your first year out of school consider applying for new grad positions/cohorts
-Salesforce certifications are great if you want to be a Salesforce Admin/Consultant but if you decide you want to do something else later, you will be siloed. Same with tech sales.
-Certs/Paths I recommend: AZ900 > AZ104 > AZ304/305. Then, AWS cloud practitioner > AWS solution architect associate > AWS solution architect professional. These will get you in the game and you might find other interests along the way.
-Good luck!

Thank you!

Also have a business degree, it’s a really good foundation for IT work. I have unique knowledge and skills that really help our department make better decisions. Make sure when you interview you ask if they are willing to either assign you a buddy or have someone that you can train with on the job, there is a LOT to learn coming from business.

Which exchange to use to buy IOTA ?

Just did an export of my spending for the year to do a full breakdown. I spent almost $2k on liquor in the 6 months before I went into treatment:

February: $553.25
March: $418.04
April: $14.75
May: $150.38
June: $92.24
July: $283.16
August: $387.70

Total: $1,899.52

That amount comes out to 40 handles, but it’s probably about 2x since this doesn’t include what I bought with cash or drank with others paying.

Im shocked. But most importantly I’m grateful to be sober today. Keep working it gang!

I am starting a 4-months internship at a company B in January. However, I just heard from a company T that they will interview me for their full time position.

Company T is paying me way more (twice) than Company B. And I like company T more. However, they want me to start working in February if I get this position. If I end up getting the offer, I will have to quit my internship at Company B, almost immediately after I begin the internship.

Is this okay?
