Hi! Looking for a fully remote role in fintech or a larger/global established organization after working in government for 12 years. Over 10 years as an HRBP/Sr and 2 years in a leadership role. Have my PHR/SHRM-CP and CCP. Love comp but my experience is limited to a smaller organization (500). Have applied to many roles but struggling to even get interviews.

Hi! I’m interviewing for an HRBP role at an entertainment/events company based in Los Angeles. I disclosed my range as 105k+ and the recruiter was transparent that the top range of their base salary is 90k, where I’m at now. In a perfect world I’d like to jump 5-10k with total comp totaling 100k+. This is a very similar role to what I’m doing now and honestly I would consider a lower base to get my foot in the door at this new company. Thoughts & feedback? YOE in HR = 4.5 & I have my SHRM-CP.

I am seeking a role in HR (nearly 11 years of experience) and considering taking the SHRM-CP. I am curious if the SHRM Learning System is really necessary or helpful. Since I am between jobs, I don’t want to spend more money than is really necessary. Did you pass without the fancy study materials? Any words of advice?

Hello fellow HR pros! I really need your opinions on HR certifications. I am deciding between PHR and SHRM-cp. I have read just about all there is online comparing the two and can not decide. My heart is telling me PHR, my mother in law (an HRBP) is telling me to go with SHRM, as it’s more widely recognized, more established and a larger network in general. I work for a 350~ company who is growing rapidly through M&A. Passions/interests are compliance, strategic vision, M&A, branding and culture
