Some of my peers have taken the ccsk, ccsp along with professional certifications for azure, aws and gcp and have been able to move into nice senior leader roles at one of these 3

OP - what exactly do you want to do at FAANG or anywhere else? SWE? Product Manager? Project Manager?

Product Management would be ideal. I interned as a Product Manager at a Tier 2 SaaS company and really enjoyed it

My wife works for AWS. AWS professional services is expecting to hire ~50pp this year. Virtual roles but they require travel. Also this is AWS “consulting” but its not consulting that professionals like you or I would recognize.

Would she be willing to give referrals out? 😛

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.

And I can transfer it over to a new IRA or new 401k anytime, even years in the future, right? Given that no distribution will come to force the 60 day rule?
