What are your thoughts on the value of a Harvard Extension School degree vs. a standard online MBA from a reputable public university? I feel like the Harvard name carries a lot of value....
Why did you choose to pursue an mba and when did you decide it was right for you? I have 1.5 years of experience and have played with the idea of studying for the GMAT but haven't been too sure. I want to aim for m7/t15 but I have a lowish gpa also (3.4 at a t20 undergrad)
Struggling to break into consulting in Chicago. Frustrating to say the least. Have an MBA and MIM (European degree) and looking for Associate level roles, maybe even lower level if necessary. Looking for advice, insight, and even intros to help me land. Much appreciated!
I’m currently in ERP and really want to get into cloud. Currently hold the Azure Fundamentals, AWS SAA, and GCP security certs. Any suggestions on what I can do to increase my chance to get into cloud?
Is the SPHR or PHR license necessary to pivot into human capital? I have a MBA from a Top 15 school. Any thoughts?
AWS-SAA question (newbie): I know AWS account is a root account & by default gives user access/permissions to all the AWS services. You need to have an aws account first to then create IAM users to define who they are, permission groups they’re in, and the level of access/permissions they have to a bucket/object for example. So....when the IAM users are added, do they receive a notification with the url to access the environment? Do they need an aws account as well? Confused on difference
1) was last year the most competitive mba app year on record? 2) will this year be tougher/easier?

Is it worth it to get a professional certification like SHRM/PHR? Not many of my colleagues have one and it’s not a requirement for my role, but I’m curious if it’s worth it in the long run

Leaving Chicago at the end of this month. The job market here has been tough. Feel like every job that I apply to gets canceled or put on hold which I understand. Not going to fly back. Going to be taking the long drive back home. I am trying to do what I can to find a job here in Chicago. Anyone know of any job leads or know of companies that are hiring here in Chicago? I love this city. Would like to stay here in Chicago.
Interviewing with a B4 firm for a consulting role. They keep rescheduling (about three times now) the interviews with two PPMD...is this normal? Never had to reschedule this many times before. Already had one interview, but waiting on these next two.
If you expensed a charge and then later realize it was billed wrong so you get it refunded by the vendor. Meanwhile the expense report is already paid by the firm do you pocket it or fess up?
