Hi all, looking to career pivot from retail to talent acquisition/recruiting. Trying to make myself stand out to make up for my lack of experience. Some roles I am interested in prefer PHR or SHRM certifications. Would it be worth it to pursue a certification to land a position? Thank you

Have you connected with any recruiters looking for entry level recruiters? I recommend you do so! Follow Adam Karpiak on LinkedIn. He’a a recruiter who genuinely wants to help people. Adam is also a career coach. He hosts “Job Board Tuesdays”, a weekly thread meant to connect recruiters and jobseekers. I have seen recruiters looking for recruiters in these threads in the past. Worth scrolling and finding old ones and connecting with those who have posted! Hope this helps!

I am not certified in either of those but I’m looking to see if I choose one as well. I was in your shoes not very long ago but I had already dappled in TA/recruiting so I had that on my side. Companies want to see the experience rather than those certifications if you’re looking to break into TA. See if you can somehow get some experience recruiting where you’re at now first.

Hey everyone. I had a conversation with a friend of me about what is the better approach:
Click apply on LinkedIn without even reading the job description.
Or
Read the job descriptions and detailsod the work before applying before applying.
The first approach is not time consuming maybe you have to apply to 100 where 1 might be suitable.
The second approach requires you to read 100 job descriptions where you apply to 10 and 1 will be suitable.
What are your thoughts?
