Calling all consultants, implementation specialists etc. How do I make the switch?

I have been in HR for 11+ years with experience in company big in small and gone through an IPO and acquisitions on both sides. I've built HR department from scratch and I'm finding I love implementing foundational programs and systems, especially hris. How do I move to a consulting type role (either traditional consulting or working for a company with a consulting service)?

Do you know anyone in the consulting world from your years in building HR departments and such that you could tap for advice/referral? I usually find personal connections to be the easiest way to make career jumps.

Hi Fishies,

I have given Barclays interview 7 days back and my status of application is HIRING MANAGER REVIEW. Any idea whom to contact to know the status. My HR's phone is switched off. It was the first round and went till 1 hr. It was a positive interview from my end too. Can someone suggest?

Wanted to get some advice here. I'm a 3rd year (going into 4th starting Jan 1) at a reputable EV/VC shop in California and am thinking of going in-house. I'm receiving some mixed comments from friends with some saying it's better to take the plunge early and others saying I should stick it out for a couple of more years to build more skills.

Anyone with personal experience with either have any thoughts? Should I wait or try to make the move now?

I recently interviewed for a position and got all the way to the final round. The hiring manager then scheduled a follow up meeting, let me know that I was the candidate they want to place an offer to but that the position was put on hold and asked if I am willing to wait a few months to receive an official offer. I agreed but at the back of my mind I am not sure if she is just stringing me along or if she really is being 100% honest. Thoughts…

I purchased the online study guide and it seems that HR has gone in a completely different direction - more operations related than employee relations etc.

Did anyone find this online training to be helpful? I test in July, so any tips would be greatly appreciated!
