It took a semester in college to become a domain expert on a topic. It takes 4 weeks here.

I think calling yourself a "domain expert" is going a bit far? I know consultants in public policy who've been at it for years before they developed a reputation as one.


The difference is that in college you had many other "domains" you were studying for versus just one or two.


Can't agree more 👍

College had more discussions around what was learned... There's a lot more solo research and reasoning on the job. Not a bad thing, just noting the difference.

Do we really become "domain experts" though? I feel like we have a good idea on the client's problem, but not necessarily a whole domain! In my experience anyway ! 😊😊😉

My boss (SVP) is about to send out an email (his org of 400 FTEs) this Friday about mandatory video calls when working from home.
Very curious to see how it’s gonna turn out. 🤦🏻‍♂️

We work 3-4 days from home everyday.


Does it make sense to pay off a 200k mortgage in 6-8 years or hold it for 30? 4.1 interest. I'm 24, no other debt, don't know how to invest, just a big pile of cash sitting in my savings account.


Company A - where XYZ is working
Company B - Who's offer XYZ is using as a counter to Negotiate with Company C (only by sharing salary breakup image)
XYZ joins company C, will he be asked to show complete offer letter of company B or only documents related to Company A will be asked ?

I currently work for a small ~15 year old PE firm that's growing slowly but surely.

I'm starting to feel like I'm doing the same things, the team is not really growing, and my growth is highly dependent on the team's growth.

I've come across an opportunity at another much larger firm that is much older; however the leadership teams at both forms are very connected.

Would moving to the other firm be a disaster scenario or am I overreacting?
