Would you take a pay cut to get out of RA into a security cloud engineering role? Currently M1 at 115k in midwest. Offered 95k to support AWS and SIEM solutions in the new role. My plan is to take the cut temporarily with the hopes of boomeranging back into cloud advisory.

Yes

Yeah worth if you want to try different work and potentially have better pay down the line. And out of curiosity, did you land this opportunity with relevant certs?

I think it was more a combination of previous work history in other cyber roles. They didn’t bring up my certs at all.

Recent graduate (class of 21) from the UW business school. I came across an open FT associate position at Strategy&’s deal strategy team and was wondering if anyone from S& would be willing to chat? I’m really passionate about consulting and have a major interest in the PE vertical so this was a huge surprise. I’ve been prepping for a couple of months now and would really appreciate the help/opportunity! Would send over credentials but not sure how! PwC Thanks!
