It’s a lot more expensive and dating is a lot harder than chi town, but having family around is nice. Why not Philly? At least it’s not as crazy as Manhattan and it’s an easy commute to NYC if you’re downtown.

I’ll probably end up back in Philadelphia (was there 11 years before bschool and loved it aside from the recession years). Looking to NYC for 2-3 years while I can (single, no kids). A good chunk of my work team is based out of NYC with none in Philly - as far as professional networking goes. Philly is difficult without a car which adds up quickly

Plus the SD Zoo uses ZIMS to track all their animals, including all attributes (ages, sex etc) which the fs says is not possible. WTF

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!
