Get the AWS Cloud Practitioner cert. It’s easier than the solutions architect so could be a good first step if you don’t have a very technical background.

SA is what I would consider the “core” AWS cert. It would show that you have a good base understanding of the various AWS services and have enough knowledge to use them. I’m not exactly sure what jobs would immediately be open but with more and more moving to the cloud I would bet it would pay off in the long run to have any cloud exposure.

Hey Fishes,
I have 2 intervies lined up with mastercard, one with a 3rd party company on their payroll (have cleared initial rounds and final client round in with mastercard) .
I recently got a interview call from mastercard hr as well but interview will be scheduled after few days.

The question is : Should I go ahead with the 3rd party interview with mastercard?
If I get selected via 3rd party and also give direct interview with mastercard will it cause any problems at the end?
