Hello! I’m currently in Talent Acquisition Operations, and although I do love Operations and all things related to process/efficiency, I really want to pivot away from Talent Acquisition/Recruitment. After some research and initial soul searching, I have started the Google UX Design Certification… but I’m wondering if anyone has any other recommendations of careers that might blend my love of process improvement with the opportunity to be creative? Thanks!

Will definitely look into this! Thank you!

Can you share why you are looking to pivot away from talent? I’ve been considering the move into talent ops so curious as to your drivers?

That would be awesome if you could share! I’ve been on TA upward of 10 years and feel like ops is a pivot to hopefully doing something outside of talent down the road as well.

Do you think an MBA is only really worth the exit options immediately post mba? I just hear everyone obsessed with rankings but tbh in 10 years, outside say Harvard, they will have changed. My Alma mater undergrad was a top 20 school that has fallen for example. I chose it because it was the best in my local area but who cares given i don't live in that geographic local anymore. Other schools that I didn't even consider have risen up.
