Bummer- sorry EY.

What level are you OP. Is exec MBA helping you in anyways at work? Network, new skills etc etc...

I don't know how you do it OP. If I was in an executive MBA there's no way I would have the time to study in order to rock exams...

Recommendations for schools?

Grin and bear OP, there's light at the end of the tunnel. Is EY paying for it?

Hey all, would love some advice. I’m a Business Analyst with 5 YOE and minimal technical skills. And I’m really unhappy where I’m at. Very underpaid, and feel like I’m limited in job opportunities. I want to become more technical but no idea where to even start! I was thinking about starting with a certification but most seems really tough to learn as a newbie. Any guidance/advice on which certs to look at? Was thinking AWS cloud practitioner as a starting point? Any help welcomed!!

I am so grateful to have a job right now but I am really struggling. I’ve been at D for a little under a year and have been really unhappy with my experience. In particular, my current project and my direct supervisor make me feel unbelievably incompetent and under appreciated. Given COVID, there is little flexibility to roll off. I’ve tried to stick it through but I’m at a breaking point. Any suggestions on how to make the best of it? Or next steps?

Very few cases either. Two months of this now.
