Advice: if you do not know what to do after your MBA, do yourself a favor and do not apply. I've seen too many examples of people trying to figure it out in their 1st semester, it doesn't work & you will be stressed out. Recruiting goes by fast, and you need to prep before you step your foot on campus.

I applied thinking I’d go sellside (I didn’t), recruited general management first year (hated it), and recruited buyside investor relations second year. Now I’m partner track in VC. Go figure. Plans change. It’s not the end of the world.

Not true. Let people try recruiting in different fields. It’s better to be targeted but a great place for exploration

Hello everyone, I am currently a HR Generalist for a small aerospace company, located in CA. I have been in a generalist role for a little over 4 years now and before that, I did recruiting/safety for about 3 years. I am now looking into getting my HR Certification, but am stuck in between the PHR-CA or the SHRM-CP. Does anyone have any recommendations they can give me?

Been interviewing with D, EY and Accenture at M level. Keep feeling a bait and switch to SC. I'm M currently. The feedback has only been that I "haven't worked on large enough projects" and that 1 yr as an SC to M timeline would allow me to "learn their capabilities, approaches, etc". Anyone else face this? I'm a bit frustrated. High performer, MBA... How much will this effect salary, if I accept an SC vs. M offer?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.

I have a final round coming up which includes 30 minutes assessing my “technical skills” which the recruiter implied would be the skills listed on my resume (these 3 were also listed in the job description). FWIW I listed my R skills as “basic” since all I’ve ever done is a short online course, and for SQL I’m fairly comfortable with your standard queries (JOIN, WHERE, ORDER BY, etc.). This is for a strategy role.
