I also really like Hung Lee’s Recruiting Brainfood. He has both a weekly podcast and weekly newsletter in which he highlights top content he’s found from the week. It’s not all recruitment based either.

I subscribe to the LinkedIn Talent Blog and BuiltIn has some good content that’s usually highly relevant given they are a tech specific hiring platform.

The People Ops Society is great and they do some good free webinars, but they charge for a membership similar to SHRM. More modern and applicable for the younger, growing sector of the workforce. They also just started a podcast called "People Problems" but I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet. Check out the All Hands and Redefining HR podcasts as well!

I think the podcast Brave New Work (based on the book) gives some great advice. It’s all about reimagining the workplace. The nice thing is about startups is that you don’t have to deal with the rigid bureaucracy of the typical large organization. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/brave-new-work/id1488554600

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
