Hey Fishes,

Will ECBA (Entry Certificate Business Analyst) certification by IIBA be helpful to me in my career ?

My background-
* B.E in Computer science
* MBA in Systems and Analytics (2019-21)
* It's been 6 months I am working as an Analyst- Data science at Infosys

Is there any benefit of doing six Sigma, black belt , if you are not actively involved in quality. Also any other skills you guys recommend for better switch

Just passed my last CPA exam and will be getting a bonus in my next paycheck. I’d like to buy myself something nice, but I’m having a hard time thinking of what. I don’t wear a lot of jewelry. My hobby is photography, but I upgraded to a better lens recently and don’t really need anything else that I can think of, though I’m open to suggestions.

Curious to know what other people did with the bonus. (Aside from paying off debt, which is where a portion of it is definitely going.)

I just received my Security+ cert and I’m about to graduate with my masters in applied intelligence. Does anyone have any tips on how to jump into the tech industry, specifically on landing a role as a threat intelligence analyst? I’ve been struggling considering my lack of experience. However, the knowledge is there. I have practical experience authoring intelligence reports and continuing to expand my knowledge in cyber.
Thank you in advance.

Starting a new job next month, and considering taking two days off for kids’ spring break next month. Not sure whether it’s appropriate to request time off for a new job (I would’ve preferred not to take any time off for first three months). I may just be able to just ask for a single Friday off (so 1 day rather than 2 days).

Any thoughts on whether I should proceed with the request? I just came from big law and want to make sure I’m not making a bad impression on my colleagues.
