Need Advice: I recently cleared the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam which inspired me to go for one other cert in the cloud world. However, I am confused if I should go for the next AWS cert (Solutions Architect) vs Google’s Cloud Digital Leader cert? Can anyone recommend anything here? Goal is to move out of consulting asap and get into FANG. TIA!

AWS SAA will give you depth while GCP will provide breadth. Depends on what you are looking for.

Why would you go for any certification if your goal is to move out of consulting

Current MBA, looking to go into product management. I’ve never had product experience and have to choose between a product management internship or a growth & analytics internship. I want to be a good job candidate with experience but... The PM internship’s company doesn’t have the most exciting product, but the founder said he would train me on PM responsibilities. The other company has a cool product, and is heavy on mentoring but i would not be directly involved in PM stuff. Which is better?

This will likely come across as an odd question but I’m Canadian so it’s common to be bilingual (English/French) and work in a bilingual capacity or role. I was hired for an English position but a year in I offered to temporarily help in a bilingual capacity as my department was severely short staffed. As it’s perpetually been short staffed for 4 years I haven’t been able to get out of the bilingual role and I have become burned out working in a second language. How can I bring this up?
