Took it today and I was told variance analysis was super important. I got 1 MCQ on it. BEC is truly random. Lots of COSO and IT. Some Econ.

Another analyst (male indian) starting the same time as I is annoying the heck out of me. He never shares information, and always just repeats what I said in group messages, emails, zoom meetings (and prompts me to go first). He even stalks my calendar and compares the schedule overlap with our manager’s to figure out my meetings and schedule🙃. He also pushed me under the bus (he didn’t do a task even though i reminded him, yet he said I didn’t do it either together). What should I do

Can anyone recommend a Time Management course for employees? Bonus if it is tailored for Outside Sales people. Online/Virtual would be preferred as the reps are scattered throughout the country. Thank you!

I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼
