I am struggling with the fact that I have 13 years of HR experience in one capacity or another, along with a bachelors degree and my PHR designation yet companies say “I’m not qualified or they ghost me when I apply for HR openings. I am experienced in all aspects of HR. How are people with little to no experience coming right out of college obtaining higher level roles than I have currently? It makes my passion for the field just go away.
How do I get these car warranty calls to stop? Change my number I've had for 20 years??? What has worked for you? I've added myself to Do Not Call, etc.

Advice on taking and passing the SPHR exam?
Has anyone taken the PHR exam lately? What was the best test prep IYO? Online on demand , online live classes? Are the practice exams worth the cost?
For those of you who spent the time and money to get the PHR or SHRM certifications, do you feel that it actually strengthened your professional capabilities as on HR professional, or did you just do it to fit into the “HR Professional” crowd?
Would you ask for a higher pay at a startup, due to the company not having a pension scheme for its employees?
Ladies & Gentlemen, with one month left in Q2, some will fall short of our numbers. Others will hit them. I can’t speak for all of us here, however, I can speak for myself. That being said, I will NOT be one that comes up short of my number. Now, this leads me to you all, to present a question. If you have to prospect, if you’re looking for new business, is it worth $1500 to put 95% of your prospecting process on autopilot? If so, let’s chat.
Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
Has anyone seen or discussed this Petition for SHRM must support Black Lives Matter & the LGBTQ community? I’ve grown increasingly concerned and disappointed in SHRM’s lack of vocal support for employment protections for LGBTQ+ and black and brown workers, especially as a black woman in HR. It seems like SHRM is overly focused on what is absolutely “legal” and not what is right. I’m of the opinion HR professionals must not only be “legal” but have a relevant and compassionate stance
How much value do companies place on HR experience in a specific industry? My thought is that HR is HR wherever you go, and it shouldn’t be difficult to switch industries (e.g. manufacturing to financial services), mid- to late-career. But what has been your experience?
I have worked in the HR space for the past 9 years, however most of my experience has been in Talent Acquisition. I do want to move into a People Operations/Generalist role. I’m planning to go for a HR certificate but unsure if I should go for a PHR or SHRM. Please advise!
If you are feeling sick or something during the day and WFH, do you feel comfortable napping it off and then getting back to work and working late if needed? I have friends that say this is totally normal and okay but I feel weird about it and can never actually rest to feel better if I do lay down
Can anyone recommend a certificate or course that is actually useful for developing professionals and/or reviewing performance? I don’t want/need something that is just a credential, I’m actually looking to get some formal grounding in these two topics so I can overhaul processes at my consulting firm. Thanks for your advice!!!
I would like to help those wanting to shift careers in HR, minorities, or women going back to the workforce, learn workday coding and ultimately help them get a job in the space. Is there any interest?
Are you folks happy with your decision to make a career in sales? I’m young working in tech sales, but also have my bachelors in psychology, and could see my self happily going for my masters maybe even PHD and being a counselor.
Hi Sales Community - I’m moving from a Mid-Market sales position into Enterprise sales and would love to use this ramping period to enhance my skills. After being in sales for 4+ years I feel decently confident in my sales acumen but I never received any formal training or held an SDR role so I’ve always felt a bit underprepared. I was wondering if anyone has a good sales book recommendation that might be beneficial for me to check out as I head into a more senior role? Thanks!
Anyone actually keep their PHR active? I got my cert in 2013 and have done nothing since.
I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?
Accenture folks: 1. Does Accenture do tuition reimbursement? 2. What level number is a consultant?
Good or bad time to head out on parental leave?
Thinking about taking a vacation in Feb/March to just regather myself. Anyone know any good spots that are friendly to solo travelers? I’ve had some less than stellar experiences in the past. Also go ahead and drop if you’re M/F. I want this post to be as helpful as possible.
Filing H1B Extension while my passport is expiring in 6 months. The consulate put passport renewal on hold due to Covid-19. If the H1B extension is approved, would the I-94 on approval notice have an expire date in 6 months as my passport?

Hypothetically speaking if I got a face tattoo tastefully done could I actually get fired on the spot (asking for a friend)
We have sales people in Canada and the US, the Canadians make 150K CAD and down here it’s 150K USD, the Canadians argue they should be making 30% more than the US colleagues to be equal bc of the exchange! I explain the salary is dependent on the market data for them in Canada, WHERE THEY LIVE, and you can’t compare it to the US employees and the market data down here. Overall they are both in the 75th% for total comp. for their industry. Am I wrong?
A few of my friends have been posting about how we know nothing about the covid vaccine and they won't take it. I'm just like, you literally can't take it because we live in the US and no one is offering it to you 🙂 and I'll be happy to get one before you, no problem!
Probably asked countless times – but Senior and Leadership folks who are on here, are we going to see a more distributed workforce and agencies allowing their employees to permanently WFH when this pandemic over? You guys are actively part of these conversations and would love to hear any insights.
I’ve been feeling incredibly burned out lately (as many of us do) and trying to decide if I should take a leave of absence or sabbatical type of break. I had 2.5 years of exp in strategy consulting and 2.5 years in BizOps at Big Tech. I want to take some time off to relax and reflect on what I truly want for myself for the next few years and try to learn new skills like UX research or Coding. Is this crazy or something that people have tried to do in the past?
Serious question: has W+K ever had layoffs in the last decade or so? I don’t think I’ve ever heard about it if so.
On the bench? Join my new bowl ‘Bench Blues’! Inspired by being bored AF on the bench hahaha *help*
