Considering the FRM certification. Those who’ve taken it, how quant heavy is it? I have a compliance risk background and don’t have a deep math or statistics background. However, I want to expand my skillset. Any thoughts?

Financial Risk is very different from compliance risk. You’ll need to have a pretty good math and stats background.

Wouldn’t want to use it to pivot out of compliance. But rather to add a dimension to my risk skillset and explore quantitive analysis, which seems important and for which I lack a solid foundation.

I am looking to make a career change to HR. I currently make 75K as a sales and development coach. I had a recent offer for a state government position in a talent acquisition role but I’d be taking a $25K pay cut. I am extremely over qualified for the position but it could possibly be a stepping stone and gives me the time to acquire SHRM certifications and possibly start taking classes to get my MBA. My question is those currently in an HR role, would this move make sense to you?
