A job post for “Cloud Native GCP/AWS Architect” at Deloitte even prefers AWS certs to GCP.

How do you know if/when it's time to switch careers?
My current job has a solid progression to make more money, but it takes years to get there. I make about $70k right now. As a data engineer/analyst. Primarily work on the engineering side, but I went to school for analytics. I never saw myself doing the engineering role, but when I first took it, it was a great start to my career.

I was offered a new position mainly in management in a completely different industry for $100k and bonuses.

Hi fishes!

I've been working as a freelancer for the last 1yr as a UI/UX designer. Now I'm thinking of switching back to a full time job in the same field.

Also, what should be the expected CTC with 4 YOE in Product design or UI/UX role?

Any suggestions and thoughts are highly appreciated!
