I’m currently in ERP and really want to get into cloud. Currently hold the Azure Fundamentals, AWS SAA, and GCP security certs. Any suggestions on what I can do to increase my chance to get into cloud?

Not in cloud, but I’d say specialize in one product, now that you have generalist skills on each major platform.

Learn one vendor at a deeper level, since you’re already familiar with the products across the board. Get hands-on experience - whether at work or side projects. Don’t ONLY get certs

AWS-SAA question (newbie): I know AWS account is a root account & by default gives user access/permissions to all the AWS services. You need to have an aws account first to then create IAM users to define who they are, permission groups they’re in, and the level of access/permissions they have to a bucket/object for example. So....when the IAM users are added, do they receive a notification with the url to access the environment? Do they need an aws account as well? Confused on difference

I am in the process of negotiating an offer for a new job. At my current job, bonuses will be paid out on august 20th. The bonus is sizable so I would like to stay long enough to obtain it. Ideally, I would wait until the bonus hits my account before I put in my 2 weeks. If the new job wants me to start sooner than august 20th, is it acceptable to say that I want to stay because of the bonus, or should I give a different reason?
