I want to switch role as an AWS developer. But I have just learnt the things on my own in AWS. In interview I am asked questions based on real scenarios on which I am not having any experience. Any suggestions? Even if I do hands on on services like Linux academy or quiklabs, it would not help. (AWS cloud migration experience one can get if worked on a real project). Please help.
I’ve been on the same project for a year and am ready to move on. What are your best tips for initiating a roll off conversation?
Can anyone provide me with the charge code for 3 hours of daydreaming? Make sure it is a client chargeable code.

I am a developer and one of my performance metrics is "Utilization" (billable hours). I am finding it hard to meet this goal (get enough work from my project team), accomplish all my admin tasks, and take vacation/holidays. Any advice?
I switched from audit to consulting, and I thought I’d enjoy my job since I’m no longer ticking the box.. doing something that’s more challenging (what people said lol) .. helping the client etc etc but honestly the job seems pretty much the same. I still work on meaningless BS stuff. Is it because I’m not in ‘real’ (strategy) consulting? I do process improvement / CFO advisory. Or are all corporate jobs pretty much the same other than the pay / wlb (which is def. better)
Folks, I just got promoted and joined this group. How should I approach selling consulting services? I am delivering services and not had much success farming given the client environment. How can I start hunting? Any steps or tried-out resources I can leverage? Help out a fella trying to do his job better 🙏

My firm is virtual - all work done remotely in home office unless on client site. Haven’t traveled since mid October. It’s driving me nuts. What do you recommend doing?
Need advice 1. Joined new project; team members and I all are learning both new topic and clients 2. My lead (previously in my role) told me to give space to the associates by letting them drive things; don't get too involved; don't need to join their meetings 3. I don't have comprehensive handover with him & have knowledge gaps 4. My lead also speak directly with my associates to check in on progress without me; and escalating important stuff from team to partners not through me
Any good recommended books on how to build a scalable product and team? I'm looking for recommendations for two areas: 1) in general laying the groundwork in a startup to have the tools and especially processes in place to scale, and 2) tactical focus on building a SaaS project. I've been promoted into a management role from Dev roots, so need to learn more PM processes to be an effective manager in day job, plus would like to start building my own SaaS solution.
Started my first coding project this week... and I can't code. Am I crazy for thinking I'm being set up to fail?

Does anyone know how people who already filed their AOS (i-485) will be affected by this? I'm vaccinated but my AOS was filed in March along with medical examination and I'm concerned this will delay the process even more :( Will we get RFEs after October 1st? https://www.natlawreview.com/article/cdc-issues-new-covid-19-vaccination-requirements-green-card-applicants
Zillow as the exit opportunity? Product Manager role. Yay/Nay? Not considering $$ for now. Just based on culture and future growth prospects?
Anyone else? I have a full set up (multiple monitors, standing desk, the whole nine) in my home office, but as often as I can (like when I have a webinar or training to watch) I like to sit on the couch with just the laptop and get the full benefits of puppy snuggles 🥰🥰

Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.

I currently make 60LPA in Hyderabad and my firm has an offer for 150k in Chicago. Is it worth? I am generally happy with the package in India and have good savings as I own my house in Hyderabad and I am not a lavish spender. I have been onsite in US previously with an allowance but I did not go crazy over the so called American experience. Single earner with one kid.
