How’s Venables Bell and partners doing? Always liked that agency and the people who founded it. Haven’t heard much from them in the press in a while though.
Venables Bell and Partners
So, my boss just told me that all lives matter. Let me know if you hear about any executive HR openings, I have 16 years of global HR experience.
To hr professionals in finance..I’m considering getting an online certificate through Cornell in data/analytics. Worth it or do employers think it’s equivalent to Coursera?
Been at one agency for well over a decade, from baby planner to leading my region. I'm thinking about making a move. How do you think a "one agency career" looks on the job market? Yay or weirdo?

With offices reopening across the US this summer, are any agencies requiring their staff to provide proof of vaccinations or negative test to go into the office? I am interested in which agencies are BUT also your comments on whether that policy would help ease safety concerns you might have around going into an office.
Just got laid off from my big company in-house gig. So, it’s not exclusive to the agency world.

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! :)
Arnold was this you??
Is giving two week notice still the norm?

Recruiter asked me where I was living and I told her the nearest big city to my house. She then asked if I lived in the city or the suburbs. Besides homes office do they ask this to see if you should get a higher/lower salary depending on your response?
How difficult is it to go from IT consulting (PM) to management consulting? Have an interview lined up and want to know what areas will be key to highlight and some of the known gaps.
Have an offer from a competitor, should I ask my current company to match my comp and change service line?
Looking for help to negotiate offer: recruiter brought up comp expectations twice during interview process and asked if I was ok with 110-120 salary. Offer came in near the low end. Can I ask for higher (125) now that they’ve extended an offer? The role is a step down in terms of level so we’d discussed coming in closer to the top of the range. I also have a retention bonus at my current firm that I didn’t bring up as I wanted to wait until I received an offer.

Is it appropriate for junior consultants to connect on LinkedIn with senior clients from a project? I’m about to roll off my project and want to keep in touch with these clients given they work in my dream exit job. For context, the client is senior in title but relatively young (mid 30s) so not like retirement aged executive who may find my networking too forward. We had great interactions throughout but no explicit invite to connect on LinkedIn. TIA!

Decade+ in and realizing I would rather be either in pure play brand consulting (like an Interbrand) or in consumer/culture advisory (deeper thought leadership, trends, consulting, like a Gartner or a WGSN ish) than stay in ad agencies working on campaign development. Has anyone made a pivot like this successfully? I feel like I am at a point where there are some skills or experiences those worlds require that I haven’t been able to “go deep” on, consistently in agency brand planning world.
Has anyone tried living in a long term rental/Airbnb for a month or two during covid? What are some nice places to visit?
Are the days of getting an MBA when you’re already in consulting (pre-MBA) over? What’s the value of it with direct promotion?
Thoughts on starting an MBA at 25? Would it be too young? I’m hoping to recruit for MBB after, would my lower years of experience be a challenge in any way?
