I haven't made the leap yet, but I've always wanted to do something in finance or accounting, so I'm considering going back to school for that soon. Life is too short not to do something you truly enjoy.

I'm really lost in my career. Started out in ID and hated it, jumped around and made it out of ID to my desired area.

Trying to make it work and stay here for as long as I have as I've jumped a lot in a short time and frankly I don't want to jump again. I had the chance to go back to ID and work for an old mentor who is incredible and go back to doing what he does (continued in comments)

I was the only female working in an office full of male analysts. My CEO didn't realize I was there, and went on and on about the last (and only other) female to leave the company, and asked if anyone knew if she ever in her life had a boyfriend because she seemed like such a b*+ch.... She didnt talk much, but I related due to the blatant uncomfortable sexism around the office. I recently left for other similar and worse remarks. They denied giving me my bonus (2 weeks away). Worth a fight? $33k

I had my PHR back in early 2000, then made a career change to a paramedic (I know, right). I called SHRM and they said I'm eligible to test again even though I only currently have 1.5 yrs of HR.

I purchased the online study guide and it seems that HR has gone in a completely different direction - more operations related than employee relations etc.

Did anyone find this online training to be helpful? I test in July, so any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks - lauren

Creating in-house vs side hustle:

After years working in a particular vertical, I’ve developed a framework that allows me to quickly research, size, prioritize and produce inputs for organic growth. It’s different from anything I’ve directly on/done while working at any company, and I’m tempted to build an MVP with a freelancer but scared of my employer finding out, expecting me to building it in-house (taking ownership) /file any type of (legal) complaint against me. Recs/thoughts?

I want to ask to change my hours from 8am -5pm with an hour lunch(which I rarely take!) To 7:30am - 2:30pm with no lunch. My child is starting kindergarten and I want to pick her up from school and spend evenings with her. Getting off at 5pm I would be in traffic and probably won’t get home until 6pm where I would have to cook dinner. This leaves me with about an hour to spend with her before bed time. Anyone work these hours in HR? Wondering the odds of this being approved?

I'm frustrated. Everywhere I've worked I've gotten great reviews and even leadership awards. At my last company my boss was promoted to CAO. She hired a director but made her VP of HR at hire due to someone leaving. VP ran 6 HR directors out of the co (we all left without jobs lined up). After I left my team quit & the CAO was fired. Now they promoted this VP to a Sr VP. I gave so much, got nothing, yet she fell into SVP. I have a new Director level job. How do I break into the VP level?
