As posted in Women in Law, a handy tip on how to colour code your outlook inbox:

(1) go to “View” tab
(2) select “View Settings”
(3) select “Conditional Formatting”
(4) select “Add” and name e.g. “Urgent”
(5) select “Font” and choose e.g.
- effects: underline
- colour: Red
- font style: bold
- size: Big
(6) select “Condition” and navigate to “More Choices”.
(7) select “Categories” and choose one.

Assign an email with that category and it’ll change colour!

So, a recruiter gave me feedback that my lack SPHR or SHRM-SCP is causing my resume to be knock out by AI and human recruiters despite my position and work history in Multinationals and being in Technology. They suggested that we put SPHR ( Lapsed). I let it lapse in 2017. What is your opinion? Plus if I were to take another certification - should I take SPHR or SHRM-SCP?

Hi,
I have close to 6 YEO in php (symfony) and recently with reactjs and fluent ui. I also have basic knowledge of azure.
Php doesn’t seem to fetch much money and reactjs I have started very recently. I want to switch for better package and product based company.
I am ready to learn any language but what should I select? Java? Scala? Python? etc
How do I get out of this trap of php.

Should I just learn a language and add directly in cv or learn react and move fullstack?
