Hey all, I’ve been a solutions architect associate for a year now as my first tech job out of college. I was able to get my AWS SAA Certification and followed that with Azure AZ-900. What is a normal salary range for someone in my position who recently graduated last May with a year of experience and holding these two certifications?
How do you look for a job in Sweden from the US? Have a Swedish spouse and are thinking of moving from the US. T10 MBA + MBB firm, not sure how to find opportunities or convey experience to them. I could transfer offices to Stockholm but want to see other options

Hello, I’m a Physical Therapist (DPT) and am considering going back to school for my MBA. I’m hoping to pivot out of patient care and into a more corporate/leadership role. Is there anyone here with a similar background? Any insights as far as opportunities an MBA could afford for someone like myself? Thank you!
Can anyone tell me about DP 203 certification?
Consulting firms should just kick everyone out without an MBA -- be more like MBB. Also, shitty, peasant MBAs are out too.
Do sponsored candidates ever go into their MBA with intention to do some recruiting and casually explore what else is out there?
Considering applying with sponsorship and returning to consulting but would consider forgoing sponsorship if I could end up at the right place (e.g. select VCs or exciting corp dev role).
Is it an good idea to go to full time mba after getting the I140? Currently have 5 yoe, and green card will takes another 3 years for me. I really want the brand, network and career opportunities from an M7 mba. Worries that 5 years later full time mba doesn’t make sense.
To the guy that just deleted his post - you're right. An MBA ranked around 100 has a miserable ROI and is only a good option for people that need a box checked, not for people hoping to change careers
Exploring solutions consultant role at L4, 4 yoe in mgmt consulting incl MBA:
Q1. How operational are the responsibilities? Have heard about having to meet targets for number of tickets resolved. Concerned that it's all about executing vs delivering long-term impact
Q2. Does the role provide enough transferrable skills, given the area is in ads policy? Is it too niche / limiting in terms of internal transfer for example?
Would welcome any insights, particularly from ex consultants, thanks!
Mba consultant recommendations for essays? Mainly for sanity check on story and trimming fat since most of my rough drafts so far are over word limits
Also any DIY tips on identifying/removing fluff?
I’m a CMA who works in Behavioral Health. I have been asked to float to different offices to assist other providers because we are short staffed. I don’t mind because I thought this would be temporary. The problem now is the positions available have no applicants as of yesterday. Not one applicant! The positions have been posted for 2 months or more. I feel since I’m doing the job of 3 CMAs I should get a raise. Any ideas on how to present my case for a wage increase to management?
If I want to go to graduate school eventually for more than an MBA, would it look bad to take the bare minimum my senior year? (I already have a job)

I would love to get some opinions on LVP (“luxury vinyl planks”) as a flooring option. I have to redo my kitchen floor and I’m concerned they might not hold up too well, I don’t want to regret it when I go to sell my place in a few years.

Has anyone moved from New York to Chicago? Anything you can share? Pros, cons, regrets, etc? My spouse has a great opportunity to transfer offices so we are figuring out if it’s worth it. Thanks 🙏🏻

Friend started networking for MBB 4 months before anticipated interview date. Little case prep. Partner asked “fun” question how they’d approach something ~ totally caught off guard 😟.
