So, a recruiter gave me feedback that my lack SPHR or SHRM-SCP is causing my resume to be knock out by AI and human recruiters despite my position and work history in Multinationals and being in Technology. They suggested that we put SPHR ( Lapsed). I let it lapse in 2017. What is your opinion? Plus if I were to take another certification - should I take SPHR or SHRM-SCP?
My job recently got downgraded from full time to part time back in September. I’ve been casually applying to roles that genuinely interest me, but I get rejection after rejection with no interview.

My husband is obsessed with buying a 50k pickup truck. He feels he deserves it as he works hard in sales making 65k. I think it's a ridiculous idea considering the looming recession. I make 60k too and we have a 1800 MTG. He would trade in a 10k truck but I still think it's ridiculous. Any suggestions or experience that someone has gone through this argument. I'm also open to hearing about successful purchases of highly depreciated trucks.
What’s the best self paced GMAT course? I’ve heard veritas is pretty good. Anyone go through it?
Anyone have dermatologist recommendations?
When will the older generations realize they’re losing this battle on remote work? People don’t stay 40 years at the same place anymore because it’s “safe”. People will just leave nowadays. And it’s exactly what people are doing. My company can’t hire ANYONE because we don’t offer a hybrid even. On the flip side, we’re losing people in masses at this point and can’t fill any of the roles because the owner (who works remotely) won’t allow it. But “no one wants to work”. Biggest lie of 2022.

I am tasked with revamping our recruitment process to be OFCCP compliant. We have a large warehouse and hire temp-to-perm using mostly outside temp agencies.

I did not sign a no compete. (At least I did not think I did) I complete my two weeks working my butt off to ensure I leave my team in the ..
