Looking for some insight into the recruiting process. If a req was taken down after I had an interview, does it mean the job was filled? From the moment the hiring manager makes a decision and tells the recruiter, what are next steps before the successful candidate is notified? Do you have to finalize an offer with the comp team?

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Does anybody ever feel like the only thing they’re good at is being an attorney (when the imposter syndrome isn’t in full swing, of course)?

I’ve been trying not to define myself by my career as much, but lately it feels like it’s the only thing I do well…sigh.

I just picked up my 8 week old goldendoodle pup and brought him home 3 hours ago (4pm). He had dinner and had a potty accident before and after dinner. He looks really sad and does not want to interact besides wanting to cuddle up and lay down in my lap. I’m a little worried but also wonder if it’s coz he really hasn’t napped much since the time I picked him up at the breeder at 1pm. Could he be sick? Should I be worried. When I took him outside for potty breaks he just huddled away and sat 😥

Is it weird to reach out to a recruiter/HR person from a company? I applied to a job at a company that I really like and seem to be a great fit for the role. However, I’ve not heard back and the role is still posted on their site more than 2 months later. I googled for a recruiter from the company and came across the “talent acquisition partner” on LinkedIn. Is it super weird to send her a message? I don’t know how this whole networking thing is supposed to work.
