FDD - they seem to own the relationships

FDD - have a lot more predictability on what you work on. CMAAS can be on IPOs or be stuck doing ASC 606 / 842 memos. CMAAS is more technical accounting, whereas FDD is more like finance with an accounting backbone. FDD will pull CMAAS in for complex accounting issues though

Hi my IBM sharks !
With reference to creating a tax saver FD for tax exemption under Section 80C for FY 2022-23, what is the last date by which we need to create the Tax Saver FD and upload it as investment proof on IBM Tax declarations portal?

I know that in December we need to upload the investment proofs, but do we need to get the Tax Saver FD created before that?

Hi All
I'm working as a QA in a product based company and have an experience of 2.7 years in both manual and automation testing.

I'm looking to find a job like the Forward Deployed Engineer role Palantir Technologies in the UK.

I have become hooked on finding a job that involves solving the kinds of problems they presented during their interviews. Although I got to the final round my performance anxiety got the better of me (I think I wanted the job a bit too much...). I will reapply after working in a similar company.

Is it "deep tech" / "data science" or "smart enterprise" that they're doing? Any advice welcome.
