I want to switch role as an AWS developer. But I have just learnt the things on my own in AWS. In interview I am asked questions based on real scenarios on which I am not having any experience. Any suggestions? Even if I do hands on on services like Linux academy or quiklabs, it would not help. (AWS cloud migration experience one can get if worked on a real project). Please help.

Can anyone help me evaluate whether I should take an exit opportunity. Currently in big 4 (fsrm) and have the opportunity to join a f250 payments firms internal strategy division. They report directly to the c-suite and said they mainly focus on strategy or M&A and don’t do implementation. The team seems really nice but I’m just worried about leaving consulting and leaving the accelerated progression. Would love some insights as I’m fairly lost on what to decide. Thanks!
Anyone have managers / leadership (non consulting) who seems disengaged? We all hate micro managers, but on the other side of the spectrum my manager signs on at 10am, doesn’t respond to requests for input, takes a ton of PTO yet still is angry that my project is on fire and gives me tons of extra work, it makes me feel very demotivated - why should I kill myself and work hard if they don’t give a shit, just makes me feel dumb for putting in effort.

How many days of PTO do y’all typically take while staffed and how do you socialise it? Feels like I will be letting my team down if I take time off, especially if its more than 1 Friday, since there will be no one to take over my workstreams and ensure they are completed on time. Other members are working as hard if not more and adding my shit on top of that feels cruel. We’re on a long term project so no opportunity to be on the beach soon (thats a good thing I know). Pls help.

I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
