Hi, Ben Analyst with 2.5 YOE. Anyone here graduate with a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies? Has that held you back in your career and what degree or cert did you obtain when furthering your career? I am looking to grow in benefits and I've reviewed CEBs, PHR and was interested in obtaining my MA, in HRM? Feedback?

Sorry, no - did not major in IS. However, to be honest, your work experience and certifications are going to be more important.

I grew my knowledge and experience by asking to be more involved and more duties. I attend webinars and meetings with brokers and vendors. This is way more valuable then getting a masters in HRM which doesn’t have any benefits related courses. Also it’s cheaper and less time consuming. I also gained knowledge by getting a new job that exposes me to new benefit opportunities.

I have no degree or cert. I am back in school to finish my undergrad in HR as a personal goal since work is paying for it. But getting the degree won’t help me as I have 7 years of benefits. And 11 total of HR.

What’s your overall goal? I have no desire to move into management and based on my company’s past history with merit and bonus I will be at 6 figures in 2-3 years if I stay here. And I’ve been here 2 months.

My career path was HR assistant > HR Specialist > Comp HR Assistant > Benefits and wellness Coor. > HR/Benefits Rep. > Sr. benefits Analyst > Benefits Admin > comp and benefits Analyst

Each time my title changed I got a raise.

Sorry, I don't know anyone with that degree or major. But I know several people without any degree or cert but were able to get a job in HR. I don't think your degree will hold you back as well.

An MBA won’t help you in benefits growth.

Still wouldn’t help your career growth in benefits. I’m finishing my undergrad in HRM and I’ve learned more about benefits by experience then in school. All benefit and HR managers I have ever worked under, none had a master in HRM. Benefits is so specialized.
