What courses would you recommend (or avoid) to improve my overall management skills? I am reading books, articles and my company provides me with a career coach. I am 38, and don't really want to go back to school. I have my BS in Psychology, but am a Director in Finance. Don't necessary want the cost that comes with an MBA.

HBR (Harvard Business Review) has many wonderful books and resources to read and try out. I’d start there. Does your community college offer courses you could take?

Agree. HBR has the best resources. Even the daily leadership newsletter is great.

What sorts of SQL questions are typically asked in interview questions for senior data analysis jobs? Like is knowing SQL from freecodecamp enough or should I look into taking a course online?

I’ve unfortunately not gotten the chance to use SQL in my current position so I don’t feel like I have enough experience in it, but have experience in everything else (Python, tableau, storytelling, etc)

I’ve been working in customer service for over a decade. The past 3 years have burnt me out and I am having a hard time finding something I can pivot to that will pay enough.

Does anyone have any suggestions on jobs or industries that I could move to?

I’m a 2nd year associate in tech consulting @ pwc and looking to leave ASAP. Client Experience has been pretty broad (IT strategy & implementation, analyst on clients FP&A team) w/ a brief stint as a PM on an internal GTM offering. Would love to switch to a strategy firm but feel it would be pretty difficult with pwc and a non-target school on my resume. Should I look at boutique firms? Try and switch internally?

Interested in going back to Big 4. I have done 2 internships for KPMG and worked as an associate fresh out of college for about 10 months back in 2016. After trying my hand at an opportunity at a start-up that failed, I’ve since got 3 years of tax experience at a local boutique firm as a senior/acting manager. My concern is small firm experience isnt desirable for B4. Anyone have any insight/advice on what I should do or what level I should apply for? I.e A1/ExpA/S1? should i go midsize first?
