They could. But them letting you go bc you’re going to a competitor Is irrelevant unless you’re telling them you’re going to a competitor — which you shouldn’t and don’t need to say where you’re headed

Just left ACN. It takes at least one week to process your exit in the backend, so you won’t be shown the door immediately. In all likelihood it will take a couple more days on top of that.

Yeah don’t tell them where you are going. You don’t have too. But if your on the bench they might just show you out right away - so make sure your ready for that

Ok, cool. Thanks, M1

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
