Advice on taking and passing the SPHR exam?
I’m not happy where I’m at, my abilities aren’t being maximized as I’m spread thin, and I know I’m being undervalued. Recently graduated and in property management w/ 3-4 years sales experience. Currently on the hunt for Sales/Account Management roles leaning more towards consumer goods, then tech. Any advice?
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?

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?

You’re constantly showing up for everyone else, but who’s showing up for you? I started an initiative to coach HR/people leaders because I know what it’s like to be doing all the things for everyone else with little support or focus on your own well-being, growth and development. It’s a lonely game! I’d be delighted to create the space to make you a priority. Would love to offer a free session, or simply connect: https://www.chrisrollins.me/peopleleaders.

I’m newly married and know my husband wants a child or two in a few years...however I am leaning toward not having any because I’m absolutely terrified of losing my personality and freedom. I am selfish I guess and can’t imagine my life revolving around one person. Before marriage I was still ok with one kid but now I might be changing my mind? How do I bring this up with the husband? Or do I keep it within me until we actually start trying (after year 3 of marriage as per him ideally)

Should I expect a promotion to essentially be in writing? This entire "promotion" seems to be theoretic over the last 6 months. I was about to quit yesterday and now the position I didn't think I was going to get is starting to come around;timing couldn't be crazier. Should I give them an ultimatum? I just received an insane offer but I want to stay.
I really want to do asset management or operations of real estate. I’ve been applying to in house jobs and hope to make the transition down the road. I got a lot of interviews, first round, second round, but I just couldn’t get an offer. Most of these jobs want someone with significant leasing experience which I lack (my group doesn’t do this). I’ve been giving the speech that I know how to do leasing but it’s just not my main focus of my current job, but no one is buying it. So what to do??

Looking for advice: 1.5 YOE. Really dislike consulting so far-WLB is terrible, very unnecessarily stressful, and the work is not interesting to me. I’ve been looking for other opportunities but nothing has come to fruition, and i wasn’t that interested in any of the ops anyways. I really don’t know what I want to do, just feel like I need to get out of this job immediately, even willing to take a comp cut just to find something i would actually enjoy waking up to do. Where do I go from here?

Found out I got my promotion today to managing consultant. I was happy for about 5 minutes and then started to panic as now I feel even more trapped than before. And the imposter syndrome is kicking in again. I am grateful to be employed and to be having an income during this but I'm also worrying that now it'll be even harder to leave consulting. Am I the only one who had ever felt this way?
