Been stuck in the framework side of cyber doing assessments and so far every new project or company that says they’re going to offer me a different path, i end up in the same place. Is it hard to pivot to a different career path once you have a lot of experience in one area?

We are hiring at Accenture. We dont do a lot of assessments but instead a great deal of implementation. I am happy to pass on your resume if interested. Because of the skill shortage, we are looking at different skills sets and types of candidates. No promises but happy to pass on your resume. Just DM me.

Thank you for the insight. I’m new to the app and couldn’t direct DM for the resume. Can you suggest me another way? I would greatly appreciate your time.

Strategy work is interesting; however, just CSF assessments can be boring; more fun Is when you have to remediate or lead the remediation of such items. Try to get into engagements that are like that

I left EY cyber for a startup. If you want to consider jumping to a tech startup for the same type of activities but on a more exciting (and cooler) place, DM me. Unfortunately, we don’t compare ourselves with Harvard.

Hello fellow HR pros! I really need your opinions on HR certifications. I am deciding between PHR and SHRM-cp. I have read just about all there is online comparing the two and can not decide. My heart is telling me PHR, my mother in law (an HRBP) is telling me to go with SHRM, as it’s more widely recognized, more established and a larger network in general. I work for a 350~ company who is growing rapidly through M&A. Passions/interests are compliance, strategic vision, M&A, branding and culture
