Any advice for someone looking to transition into a full HR Generalist role from Recruiting. I’m currently a Campus Recruiter with about 5 years of HR experience (Coordinator- Higher Ed).

A little embarrassing but F it! After 2 babies back to back please recommend some spandex-y or super control top panties to help with the fupa. My 2021 goal is to lose the baby weight (30 lbs) but I’m afraid the skin is so stretched out it will still be there. Tummy tuck/lipo is in the works—trust! And please don’t feed me any of those, you brought life into the world BS lines. Panty suggestions please (or solidarity to lmk I’m not alone standing in the mirror naked thinking WTF)!
Anyone else ever get a feeling of homesickness even when you’re at home? It’s this strange feeling like you’re being exposed and just want to hide.

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications
How do you all deal with family members who ask you for legal advice? Specifics: My father in law is trying to negotiate a buyout of his interest in a company in California he owns 1/3 of and he keeps asking my husband (a patent attorney in IL) and me (a divorce attorney in IL) to help them draft or negotiate contracts. They don’t want to talk to another lawyer. We have told them ad nauseam we aren’t qualified. They keep hounding us for “advice” we don’t have. The company hired a lawyer today.

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?

How have you successfully addressed leadership spreading misinformation about you or pressuring you? It’s happening at an increasing level when trying to leave projects or go to one project vs. another. It’s about what they want, not us. How are we supposed to own our careers?
