Check your offer letter (new firm and current) on terms of employment. Could be some legal repercussions. Also they might validate your employment history and when they call “former employers” only to find you’re currently employed, may not go well for you.

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.

Welp. Feeling like a failure. Made the jump to consulting and I feel like maybe I’m just not cut out for this line of work. I’m having a hard time breaking into the clique in the project I got staffed on, my new ideas are tossed to the side because “it’s always been done this way”, I’m a consultant but i keep getting stuck with just formatting slides and sheets. My +1’s seem to be the only thing that keep me going. It’s probably just one of those days but I am counting down till roll off.
