Has anyone actually done the Cybervista CISSP prep class and passed the exam? I’m hearing some great things about their Sec+ course, but crickets (or onesie/twosie negative reviews).
I recently graduated with a bachelors in finance, and have recently got hired (5 months ago) as a financial analyst. Realistically I do FP&A for a company. I have realized I am not a huge fan of doing non stop spreadsheet all day. Am thinking I’d enjoy my career more by becoming a financial planner and getting my CFP certification. Maybe in the future opening up my own firm. Any advice on what career move to make next in order to accomplish this? CFP requires 3 years of relative experience.
I want to get into Google Cloud, non tech. Preferably, Navy/federal sales of some sort. Would getting the Google Cloud Foundations cert give me a leg up? I’ve never done cloud or SaaS, just profesional services, B2B.

Ready to make the jump from government to private practice - where should I be looking? I’m in my tenth year of law practice, all in-house government experience, primarily civil litigation (civil rights, employment, tort defense). Ready to jump ship as soon as my PSLF obligations are complete. My concerns are 1) I want to make more money and 2) who will value my experience enough to compensate me accordingly (vs starting from the bottom)? I also want to transition away from government. Thanks!

She said - hope it's a good move good luck
Is she being sarcastic ?
Which one of your firm’s permanent life insurance products would you buy, and why, assuming you got a good health rating ?
Started at a new firm in a new area of law a few months ago. Thoughts on asking for a one on one with my senior associate to check in on how I’m meeting expectations thus far? Would this make me seem insecure? I’m afraid I’m not “up to par” - I teeter back and forth between ‘it’s a new type of law and firm environment, you’re learning, it’s okay’ to ‘80% of what I do comes back with substantial redlines and that means I’m failing’. 5th yr btw. TIA.
Anyone heard of the Strategic Comms divison under FTI CONSULTING? Is it good? And would employers usually pick people from big agencies like Edelman/ Weber/ H&K or FTI?

Project Management folks: Where else do you see yourself go career wise for more dollars? Feels like Sr. Project Manager is the highest you can go or jump to freelance?

Every PM job posting I see in big tech/FAANG requires a MINIMUM of 5+ years experience, and a large portion even require 7+ years. Most of the associate/rotational PM roles require 3+ years and some require 5+. Yet it seems like every 24 year old I know that went to a target school is now a PM in big tech… am I the only one confused?
Do you ever find yourself as just a “meeting scheduler” to one senior leader and an account manager to another? It’s exhausting & my role isn’t defined anywhere so I sort of understand. How do I deal?

I’ve been in hot pursuit of a role in PM, assistant, junior, coordinator, producer. If it smells like PM I’ve been after it. I feel as though I’m consistently pushed towards a sales-ish role by recruiters “to gain experience” in a company so that I can move into a PM role for them. Is this a flat out lie? Are there any PMs here that had to embrace the suck of a cold call role before they could have the goal job? 😟
I just started at an advertising agency as a PM. I feel lost and not supported & very micro-managed, I feel like I am always doing something wrong. During my 1:1 with my managers, they send me meeting recaps of the meetings (is this normal?) and always calling me out. Ex. I put the wrong date on a general note to the client and I quickly corrected it. I got called out on it and it feels like im being picked on every mistake and it feels like theyare documenting it. I don’t know what to do help!
I went through a pretty rigorous interview process for a marketing project manager but ultimately wasn't given job. Though most of the feedback was positive, the other candidate had more direct experience with the job responsibilities (digital assets, social media, etc.) My job/company dabbles in digital but it's primarily traditional media. How do I again the experience if I'm limited by the type of work we do?
Does anyone have recommendations on books, sites, etc for program management? Specifically on the tech side
The question seems obvious, how do you not show your team that you're pushy/desperate but also show them they need to get the work done? Trying to influence who is quite high up in terms of seniority.
When doing your project plan - what are your best practices when creating milestones, especially when you don't know how long something takes? Do you work closely with your account/creative/production etc lead? Do you. Relate the plan, and then review it w your lead and then put it in?
Anyone have good examples of templates they use for submitting social or digital ads through to media teams to help reduce errors? I’ve only seen excel sheets for this but perhaps theres even other online tools? Open to whatever works!
Any ideas how to reward team members who put a ton of work to get a massive project done on time?
Normally I’d take them to dinner and drinks, but that’s not really possible now, and apparently gift cards are taxable and agency doesn’t want to do it. How do you celebrate project launches during the end times?
And before someone suggests raises, yeah I’d love to, but obviously not my call.
