I worked/billed a ton last week and Monday and Tuesday this week, and then today I didn’t have any meetings or anything and just hit a brick wall - I slept until 10am and just dealt with accumulating non-billable stuff for almost all of the day. Now I feel terrible about it. How do you keep going? I feel awful about today and have such dread about all that I have to do tomorrow 😭 I’m in a new practice area and am super grateful for the work, but the learning curve is hard and I’m struggling!

So, a recruiter gave me feedback that my lack SPHR or SHRM-SCP is causing my resume to be knock out by AI and human recruiters despite my position and work history in Multinationals and being in Technology.

Sooooo I told the partners at my firm I wanted to get some exposure to a different practice area because I’m not loving what I do. Not abandoning my current team at all, but looking to start exploring a different practice area where there’s a need right now. It’s a small firm. “We didn’t hire you for that. We get you want to grow, but this is where you’re staying.” On the one hand, I get it. On the other hand, kind of shitty, right? Or am I wrong here?
