Applied for a strategy role and recruiting team asked me to interview for a different process improvement/innovation role. Does this mean I’m ruled out for the initial role? Can I ask about it during the call? New role is same YOE requirement but title demotion

You can definitely ask. It may mean the other role was filled, or they think you are a better fit for this role. If you really want this company take the new role but if you really want strategy team there then tell them you are firm on role.

When a recruiter or a hiring manager ask you, "why are you looking to leave your current role?" What are some responses people give? Frankly, I hate this question....for me its always about more money, but I feel compelled to have to give them a bs answer like a better corporate culture, etc. Any better ideas?

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. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

Hi All, I worked for 4 months at some agency as a full time, due to personal reasons I had to leave that job. After a month I joined another agency where I’m currently working/furloughed. In resume I do not mention that job where I worked for 4 months due to obvious reasons. Can any new potential employer find out that 4months I hid and covered under previous employment? Please advise, I’m scared as I’m not getting any offers despite interviewed at several organizations.
