That’s also a $2,250 program, not 100k+++

Especially considering you can make a similar amount of money doing the other core HCM modules without having to learn about the Practitioner side of things in Payroll.

Also, if you want to exit to an internal role, 9/10 job openings that I see do not even list payroll as a requirement but you'll always see the core modules+ Absence & TT.

Please share your thoughts.

I’m a first year associate and I hate it. I regret choosing biglaw so much. It’s not so much the hours even, but the content of what I do (HCPE) feels wrong to me, and the amount of time I spend working on non-billable projects just to be yelled at for not billing crazy numbers. I want to get out, but I don’t even know what my exit options would be this early on - I want to be done with private practice forever. Am I just stuck until I have more experience?
