If G2000 is not good enough, you could consider asking for a 1-time allowance to buy set of formal wear from the cheapest place your boss has recommended. Get his endorsement of your selection first! I suggest this because I’ve worked at a place where customer service staff were required to wear tailored “uniforms”, and they would get an allowance for it. If your request is denied, you could invest in a good jacket first (from one of the recommended places). A good jacket lasts a long, long time and can play up everything else you’re wearing. You can save on the shirts.

The Six Sigma certification doesn’t carry much weight these days! Even Motorola and GE, who were its champions, don’t use it anymore.

If you don't know where to start, I'd suggest reaching out to people on LinkedIn who have jobs in fintech that you might be interested in. Tell them you're keen to find out more about how they got to where they are, and ask if they'd be willing to have a coffee chat with you. Make sure you do some solid homework first, because if they respond you'll need to have good questions prepared. I've tried this a few times myself and got some very useful advice about conferences to attend, tips to navigate new environments, and skills/angles to focus on.

Those are all very different fields, with many specialised sub-fields. Some questions to ask yourself: - What are you good at? What do you want to get better at? - What elements of these subjects/professions do you like or not like, and why? - How much time do you want to spend studying? (and can you afford it?) - Does your school have cross-faculty options, or can you do a Minor in one/more of these subjects? - What internship opportunities are open to you? If you can, speak with people who are working in the areas you are interested in and ask them lots of questions about their jobs and how they got to where they are. And then, when you've done all you can, go with your gut and trust that the dots will connect. I majored in Life Sciences, minored in English Linguistics/Literature, and ended up working in HR (>10years), lol.

Hi Jay! I've personally used a blended learning approach: - Chosen languages that I know I will be exposed to often - Language-learning partners/communities (this one requires fairly high commitment) - Online resources ("Easy Languages" on Youtube is great and they cover a LOT of languages) - Libraries For Korean, I've really liked http://talktomeinkorean.com/ (videos with subtitles, podcasts, transcripts of conversations, helpful community). They sell textbooks and supplementary lesson materials now but a lot of the stuff remains free. I use Duolingo occasionally so I don't forget things so quickly now that I'm not really using the language. For French, Duolingo helps with regular practice & vocab building after you've grasped the basics, though I've found that the web version is better at explaining grammar (there are moderators that answer common questions). Alliance Francaise has a library with kids' books that you can visit for free (the membership is for borrowing the books). I'm also a fan of an app called Frantastique because it adjusts to your ability and the contest delivery is just very entertaining - however it's only free for 1 month, after which you can choose to pay a subscription (it's worth it if you're serious).

Jumping in with a HR perspective! It used to be that at least 2-3 years in a job was the expectation; nowadays job-hopping is not uncommon. However, any tenure less than 6 months will likely not be taken seriously (competitive disadvantage). A few questions to ask yourself when you're considering a job-hop: 1) What have you achieved/learned so far with your current employer? Make a list. Do you like what you see? 2) What have you done to take on more responsibilities, if you feel you're not progressing fast enough? - I like to ask this question in interviews because it tests for proactiveness to "be the change" and also importantly, grit. 3) What is your end goal (if you don't know, no worries - just keep coming back to this question at various stages of your career)? What matters most to you and what are you willing to sacrifice to achieve it? Conversely, I would advise you not to get too comfortable within a specific environment (company/team/manager) for too long at the beginning of your career, otherwise your ability to adapt may suffer.
