Hey fam. Appreciate your inputs on this: I used to be a software developer and currently work as a tech risk consultant (CISA, CRISC certified). Have completed a couple of cyber courses but do not have prior cyber experience. Most cyber sec job postings require prior experience in cloud, aws, devops etc. Applied to a couple of roles but no avail. A) Can I start a career in cyber security without prior experience? B) Will CISSP or relevant cyber certifications help?
Any CFAs here? I am planning to start CFA prep in a couple of months. I have a B.Tech in Electrical and currently working as ERP Consultant (2+ yoe). I just want to get into Finance - is it worth investing time and money in CFA? Or are there any alternatives?

Which MBA programs have the most known brands? For instance while Haas and Tuck may be ranked higher than stern, I’d argue the stern name is more widely known
I recently got diagnosed with ADHD. I'm 31 and found this only because b school and post mba consulting job was/is much more challenging than anything I did before. What I'm confused about is that even as a teenager I could read entire books overnight. But the last two years of high school I started selectively zoning out and the problem has become worse since. I just realised it now. My doctor has suggested treating depression (I was also unaware of this) with Wellbutrin first (contd)
I work in the Human Capital space and manage projects. What is worth more - SPHR or PMP? Or do either count? Obviously want to make Director and eventually more...
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
Anyone has any profit goals (wedding, down payment, etc.)? I hope to realize enough LT capital gains to pay for the part time MBA program since my employer won’t cover the expense. No less, no more!
Stories of people transitioning into sports management? Interested in hearing strategies to break in after mba and consulting

Anyone struggled with this? I’m 30; I like the idea of having kids but also was never my “dream”. I get along with my friends’ kids ok, though I’d 100% hire a lot of help(love my career and would like to retain some freedom—the idea of not going to be able to go away for a weekend w my girlfriends/my husband with no kids troubles me).My husband LOVES kids, he takes charge of nearly all of the house chores, so I’d have support. People say don’t do it unless 100% sure;I feel I’ll never get there?
People who have lateraled to a big firm in a jx they weren’t barred (and had to take the bar): How hard was it to find a position? Do firms generally pay for this? Or will they give you a bar leave, etc so you can start before being admitted? Any knowledge would be helpful!
Have a senior consultant offer from a Big 4 and a product manager offer from a pharmacy retailer (cvs, walgreens etc), but both are similar roles in digital PM/strategy. Which offer would be best to take to help me eventually exit to the tech industry in a similar role?

Recruiters/CDs/general hiring folk: can you tell what platform a potential hire built their website on (squarespace, wix etc.) and does it effect your decision in any way? In the same vein, do you notice/care if portfolio sites are mobile response? Are you ever actually looking on your phone? Thank you for any/all insight!

So the general consensus is if you’re asked to do 8+ hours of work on a file, have it reflected on your schedule... I have a bunch of clean up for my last file because of review notes left on my last day/client gave more support on last day. But I’m already fully booked on another file all of next week - what should I do?
I’m a Product Manager who wants to change careers. What is a job where I can work independently and am more task oriented? Meaning I want to know what I have to do for the day, and I can knock it out at my own pace. Maybe it’s COVID, but I’m sick of meetings with other people and simply want to be the owner of the outcome instead of being dependent on other departments/people. Obviously bonus points if it’s a sensible transition from a PM!
In search of advice here: I have a hybrid background in design and management. I have an opportunity to join a team as a designer and am also getting traction on an application for account management. I feel comfortable and excited doing both. How can I decide on which avenue to take? Which is better for long term growth and $$? Both options are roughly same salary. One is fully WFH one is temp WFH with 2-3day in office. As a designer I know there will be more challenges.
