I’ve been given a project to create a database that houses everything for our talent acquisition department including tips, best practices, processes, etc. I’ve been given free reign on creating the entire thing from scratch but I’m running out of ideas! Does anyone have any advice on what I should include? This will be going live next year and will be the main source of information for everyone in the company for anything TA related. Would love some help!!!

Was wondering which firm has the best tax technology group in terms of client types and revenue amounts.
IBMer's, Need urgent help. I recently joined IBM at band 7b for java full stack profile. After joining, I came to know that it is generic hiring & then I have given 2-3 project interviews. The interviewers said that now they will schedule client interview but none has scheduled that.

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance.

Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?

Hi All, My sister has cleared all the rounds in Accenture. HR contacted her today to negotiate the salary. My sister asked for 8LPA FP. HR said the max fixed pay they could offer is 7.5LPA. My sister told she would think and get back in few minutes. Within 5 minutes, HR moved the candidature status to “on hold” due to budget constraints. None of the HRs are answering the calls. What can i expect? TIA I am feeling worse as i advised my sister to tell HR that she would get back. :(
