Hi! I'm considering getting the SHRM certification. I see lots of companies prefer the same. How many of you have the SHRM or any other HR certification? Did it really make a difference in your career and/or compensation? TIA
There’s one type of behaviour in the recruitment community that completely baffles me - recruiters or headhunters messaging you out of the blue, asking for a call and the completely disappearing (and even ghosting you) when you answer them. I’m wondering if they care at all about their personal and company reputation? Not helping the HR community reputation either.
Curious... I seem to miss the early adopter sales waves at tech companies where AEs are making 7 figures. AWS, Snowflake, Google. Where’s the next big wave?

I have two questions. I have 10 years of experience in multiple sectors and I have been trying to gain a leadership position. I am attempting my PHR this summer but what are some tips in order for me to obtain a leadership position? Also, how long does it take to obtain another position out of state?

I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!

I asked for more money for a senior accountant role and have received a lot of push back. I have been firm with my decision and the recruiter called me today to set up an interview with the CFO. And then threw in the fun fact that there are two other applicants that are willing to take the money offered. Are recruiters always this annoying?

Commission plan discussion:
I was promoted to Director of Sales and am tasked with revamping our sales commission plans
We are in a high margin industry, the majority of the team’s sales are transactional, so they are quick closes, and they have a base around 60k
Current plan is: 3, 5, 6, and 8% of revenue depending on different factors
I am thinking of streamlining to make everything 10%. (5% paid upfront when they land the sale, 5% paid once invoiced).
Thoughts? Things to consider?
