I’m at a huge standstill in my career. Looking for any advice or tips ! I graduated Dec 2017 with a finance degree. I left my first job after 6 months after a new job offer and sadly the new job was not all gold so quit after a year in 2019 (harassment and toxic environment). I have been unemployed since. I had some interviews but no call backs. Don’t know if I should go back to school or what to even do at this point. Had my resume redone as well and interview coaching.

Which is better a “senior consultant” at EY or “Project Manager” at a local large organization? I’m currently a business analyst and recently k was offered a promotion to Project Manager. Meanwhile, I got another offer from EY as a Senior Consultant My current company are willing to match EY offer and they want me to stay. Part of me wants to join EY as it’s a big name on the resume and I can learn a lot from it BUT another part of me wants the PM and comfort zone in my current job. Thanks

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.
