Have any former consulting folks here exit into industry after 1-2 years of UG with a skipped-promotion? (ae. Business Analyst -> Associate Manager?) Specifically at a company with 1000< employees

Not so much Analyst -> Sr. Analyst, but an additional step up

Are you asking whether someone has moved up more than 1 level into industry, or skipped a level while in consulting and then exited to industry? If the former, I went from Analyst at Bain to Manager in F500 Corp strategy (skipped 2-3 years of typical progression)

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.
