When I took and SHRM-CP it was very relevant to my HRBP experience. I didn't prep at all, and I aced it. There were questions like - what is performance management.

I’m taking the one from Penn State World Campus since that’s where I’m also currently a student pursuing duo-degree (MPS) and certification in IHRER

I’m thinking of this did you buy the materials

Yes, they were included in the prep course costs

Do you find it worthwhile to do it? What is the benefit? I’ve been thinking of doing it as well

I decided to take it because feel like it would be a good resource for learning and demonstrating readiness for the next level. My professors in my Master’s program and colleagues who have this certification agree that a SHRM certification holds weight on a resume for an HR professional since it tests on practical situations.

Had a lateral interview that seemed to go well, with an invite for a second interview just 4 days later. Said they'd be in touch. After one week I followed up writing sample. They thanked me and said they'd be in touch "next week" (which was this last week). Never heard back. Any advice on what to do next? Don't want to be annoying, and don't know what a typical time-frame is.

How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with.

During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?
