I got referred to McKinsey by an EM and didn’t get an interview, whereas I did a cold resume drop at BCG/Bain and got invited to interview at both. It’s just one anecdote but I think there is a lesson to be learned there 🤷‍♂️

I think I’m going to contact a bunch of legal recruiters and tell them I’m looking to hire, set a bunch of calls just to take up their time, then reveal that I’m not really hiring after all.

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.
