Which certificate do you have? AWS is hiring like crazy right now and you have to be able to relate your past experiences to the certs to make a case.

Good day thanks for update I'm currently reviewing video and white papers to build as much as I can as my time at D was only 1yr with 2 cloud project. I currently have AWS solution architect associates, devops associate and advanced networking.

Sorry man, I just lost a homie there as well

OP How long were you at D

I was in the process of interviewing with Deloittes cloud practice. Are they laying off on that practice?

I’m in cloud and have been on the bench for several months thanks to my primary account being an airline...thankfully I didn’t get laid off, and I haven’t heard of anyone getting the axe in cloud (that wasn’t a poor performer). 🤷🏻‍♂️

I seen many in Accenture laid off works on cloud area citing chargability reasons

Hello, I'm an MBA candidate at a non-target school with a good supply & value chain program. Would anyone be willing to review my resume and offer any mentor-ship so that I can best position myself for fall internship recruitment? I realize the cards are stacked against me coming from a non-target, but I will work just as hard regardless. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Another laid off case here. Anyone moving out of US considered keeping the 401K as is instead of withdrawing? Any pros / cons to keep in mind ? Pro I see is no penalty and the fact that it'll continue to grow till I turn 65. Con is that it's a decent size amount in my case and I might need some if that cash if I don't get a job soon 🙄
