Hey guys - I work at FAANG right now, and planned on an mba in the next 2-3 years. Have an opportunity with McKinsey as a consultant. Always wanted to work there, but only for a short stint - feel like it will 1) boost my overall profile for an mba application 2) give me the experience I’m looking for before mba because post mba I’d like to focus on my own venture. Also folks at McKinsey - would love to hear what conditions there are for getting an mba sponsored at the firm. Thanks!

How much does an AWS Migration project bring in? Is it a viable business to become an AWS Migration expert? If I complete all the certification levels, get a few diverse migration projects under my belt, and set up a firm with specialists, how much would such a company make from AWS Migration projects? Wouldn’t every org eventually try to migrate to the cloud? So I assume the market’s there. This is what’s running through my mind as I prep for my first certification exam. 😄

Chicago homies: I’m struggling. Is anyone hiring right now that I could send my book to? Like, directly, and not a robot that’s going to automatically reject me? I’ve applied to VMLY&R and that’s about all I’ve found. I’ve emailed connections, no luck. I’m working a contract gig out of the state right now, but I really don’t want to pack up life and leave just yet. I’ve pulled all my resources, and now I’m asking you, fellow fishbowlers, please help. Also anyone want to be a mentor to me? Lol.

Hi fishies 🐠 I’m an Art Director that’s trying to transition over to UX Design. I have experience building websites and some previous freelance work doing some UI/UX. What’s the best route to transition over and would I need to apply for entry level roles? Does an AD role with a UI/UX focus even exist? I enjoy the thinking of UX design and am comfortable designing interfaces but I’m mostly unsure of the process of working with an UX team. Would love to hear your thoughts!
