Nope but the lawyers get paid way more and it takes until around the sm level to catch up.

For promotions- No. Your education only matters getting you in the door, and from there it is on you. You may have a steeper learning curve, but that’s on you to adjust for. For exit opportunities- well, obviously you can’t run off and become an attorney without also going through law school, but other than that, no

25+ yrs in IT and a CPA. No, unless you want to go with a very short list of large companies that seem to have a preference for attorneys. It is all in what you know / how well you do the job. Have worked with brilliant CPA’s and very poor performing lawyers and vice versa. If you have the time/ money to get a law degree, great but definitely not mandatory

Nope. Each of the two (CPA vs JD/LLM) and the experience that comes from both have their own distinct advantages and disadvantages. As a CPA, you may be better understanding tax concepts as a whole, whereas a JD/LLM may be better at a technical understanding of the tax code and reading purchase agreement, etc. Ultimately depends on your performance and developing those skills you come in disadvantaged with

I’ve been focusing my after-work efforts on job hunting. Last week a coworker asked me to help her with her resume for a promotion and she needed to turn it in next day. I looked at it and it was a mess. I spent 5 hours on it. I couldn’t job hunt. She wanted to pay me and I said no bc that will sour our friendship. I could have said no to helping anyway. Now she’s like I got a great side money gig for you. My friends need help with their resumes. I’d rather spend time on getting a better job..

After 1.5 years at the company I realised I am well underpaid. I am well aware that it would be a long shot to ask for a big raise (20k), but at the same time I don’t want to change company for that reason. A career coach told me that with my qualification I could easily earn 40k more per year than what I do. It’s really frustrating knowing that some colleagues without previous work experience would earn more on day 1 than what I earn now. I was a tech consultant for 1.5 years before this. Tips?
