Additional Posts in Technology/IT Consultants
Hey all, would love some advice. I’m a Business Analyst with 5 YOE and minimal technical skills. And I’m really unhappy where I’m at. Very underpaid, and feel like I’m limited in job opportunities. I want to become more technical but no idea where to even start! I was thinking about starting with a certification but most seems really tough to learn as a newbie. Any guidance/advice on which certs to look at? Was thinking AWS cloud practitioner as a starting point? Any help welcomed!!
I applied for few SA roles at AWS after getting the SAA certificate and some badges like the “WAF” and “Advanced Migration”. I also optimized my resume recently trying to match what AWS would look for, but I did not get any 1st call or screening interview!
I also applied to some of the roles using friend’s referral. I have more than 15 years in IT infrastructure mainly in Storage systems (EMC, Hitachi) What could be the problem? Thanks.
For those that left consulting for big tech… is the work life balance:

Friends season 2 rerun on. Chandler is excited about his new laptop which features "12MB RAM, 500MB hard drive". This was 1996, when I was in college studying computer science. Technology moves so fast but it's astonishing when you get to look at it from a time capsule like this... A 1300-2000% increase over 20 years, and we thought we were doing just fine back then. Crazy.
