I’ve had to scrounge for work all year and now I finally have work but I’m working 15+ hour days. Im really happy I have work but I’m completely missing summer which I need for my mental health. Help.
How do I answer the salary question in a recruiter phone screen? What’s a reasonable mid-level salary (raise) to ask for? A slight bump? Highball? Should I mention (a higher # of) what I make now?

Passed through Italy for literally three hours en route to Slovenia...now I’m quarantined to WFH for 14 days given IPG policy. Blessing in disguise, or will I go insane? We shall see!
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
Riffing off an earlier thread backpacks vs messengers... Decided to ditch the back pack. What are some cool work bags (male) that that are client presentable?
Anyone actually keep their PHR active? I got my cert in 2013 and have done nothing since.
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?
So, I’m currently interviewing for new job, and market is not bad, but I’m anxious and I am interviewing for every opportunity that comes my way (director/vp level, tech). Today, September 30 I received an invite for an initial interview for another opportunity. So I applied to this opportunity through networking on August 10 (!). It looks like a red flag for me and I’m thinking thankyounext, but again it’s covid time... Thoughts?
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!!!

MBB folks on H1-B who recently switched to FAANG - did you run into any issues with visa transfer? My transfer has been filed and I’m a bit nervous about USCIS’ perception of consultants and the current sentiment around H1-B visas.
Has anyone made the jump from insurance defense to working for the government (i.e. state attorney’s office)? It’s something I really want to do in the next couple years. Any tips/advice on the transition and taking a pay cut?
Having super anxiety right now. Really want to leave consulting but afraid I won’t be able to find anything with a comparable salary and better work/life — my clients seem to be running just as fast hard. I do like parts of my job, particularly my colleagues. But we are so understaffed it’s insane.

How are you managing your teams being pandemic-fried, when you're also pandemic fried? Above regular project stress, I'm noticing a significant decrease in resiliency across the board, and just less capacity to get things done. Not trying to wring more work from exhausted ppl - wondering if anyone has found useful strategies for helping restore their teams energy and capacity.
I feel like we are already in the start of a recession, but don’t have a lot of solid metrics to point to. Just general individual points for specific companies. Just me, or do you sense it too?
I started a new job as an acd but didn’t leave my job at my old agency where I’m only a senior. They’re in two different cities and I’m remote so I can pull it off, I think. No overlapping clients either. Am I playing with fire here? TLDR: holding down two jobs simultaneously
PHR or SHRM? I am looking to get more certifications related to HR vs recruiting, but I am unsure on which one is "better" or will help me grow into more of a strategic HR role. Help!!!
