I think it's tough to transition to product work without having product experience. If you're doing product work in big 4, it is probably different experience

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!

Best job to get to transition into HR?

Does anyone know where to start in HR please?

My goal role in 5 years let’s say is Chief People Officer / People & Culture Director, etc.

My background is 12+ years in customer/client experience, coaching, sales, and account management. I’m finishing a Lv7 executive coaching course and starting a CIPD Lv5 people management course.

Any ideas on what roles I can start with? Don’t care if it’s a simple role, getting in with a good company is important.

As a former consultant/generalist, I totally understand B-school students and consultants not necessarily knowing exactly what function or career path they want to take but I almost want to stop responding to people who want to do either Product Management, PMM or Project Management considering they have very different responsibilities. If you want to do product, ask to learn more about product, if you want to do Project management, ask more about that and so on and so forth.
