I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
McK folks: if I am interviewing for McK and start during covid, is missing in-person orientation a disadvantage?

Currently KPMG Strategy, thinking about moving over to ACN “Strat”. Will be a level up from where I am, KPMG Strategy M to ACN SM, which is a nice bump in pay. Probably would be KPMG D in 2 years, so this accelerates me a bit. Other than the compensation, any reason why NOT to do this? Looking at a 25-30% base pay bump.

Those managers and above, if you have a sold newly promoted senior with good FY17 utilization but his FY 18 utilization so far is around 60%, what would you think?
Say you apply to an internal role (and your manager knows about it), but you don’t get the job. Do you just let your manager know about it casually, and reiterate your interest in and commitment to the current team? Wouldn’t your manager be a bit wary of your renewed interest in the team now that your internal job application fell through ?
Does anyone happen to know what clients Accenture technology/cyber works with the Philadelphia area? Or does being located there just mean traveling from Philadelphia to other client sites. I know Comcast and few other big names are there.

Might be a paranoid mom question - my 16 month old is starting daycare next week. So far, I’ve had virtual interviews/meet and greet sessions with the daycare staff. Today we went in for our in-person orientation and I noticed that my child is the only non-white kid in his class of 8. Not entirely shocking, but in my head (and having seen pictures in their catalog) I was hoping there would be a little more diversity. Should I be worried about my kid feeling left out because he looks different?
Does your firm have traditional PTO or “unlimited paid time-off”? If the latter, do you and your colleagues take vacation? My friend who specializes inHR/organizational management said even though the intentions may be good in offering “unlimited” PTO, in practice most firms and companies always see a significant decline in people taking vacation because they no longer feel entitled to their PTO. Is there a way to take advantage of the policy within reason (5-10 days/year) or is it a total scam?
