About 4/5 years out from my MBA, aiming for M7/T15 and interested in thoughts for next career steps. I started in startups and now work in client services for PE - would you move to staffing for incredible PE/VC backed startups or marketing/IR for MM PE firm?

Went to a 40 public school, 3.1 GPA liberal arts, practice tests in the 720 range now, white female, and a few volunteer consulting things.

He has so much potential but I feel like all people see on his resume is that he’s a GM of a location as opposed to an operations leader especially when applying to jobs on LinkedIn. Looking for jobs in ATL.

Hey all! Wondering how you're handling FMLA medical certifications for pregnancy. Most of our employees go a few days past or earlier than the "expected" date listed on the certification. Wondering if you're requiring updated certifications or just adjusting dates in your HR records. Any advice is appreciated!

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
