I passed the SHRM-CP last year! I bought the SHRM learning system & took Victoria’s boot camp which was very helpful. Victoria’s boot camp broke everything that would be on the test down. The learning system was good for practice on the situational questions!

Super excited for you. The best advice I can give is that the test is heavy on how you use your knowledge to make good choices in situations. Focus on the "why" behind policies/laws/ect and not just the facts and dates.

Following. I’m scheduled to test on 02/12

I earned my pass for the SHRM-CP this past Friday. The test wasnt hard but it’s harder than the PHR (Sept 2020). Its more than you just having the knowledge of HR it also focuses on your ability to apply said knowledge. The exam is 60% knowledge and 40% situational judgement. The situation judgment questions were tricky 😩. Take as many practice test, if you can, to get a feel on how the questions are presented.

I’m a recruiter with 8 collective years of experience in the HR industry - mostly comprised of recruitment and employee relations. I’ve also been SHRM certified.

Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!

Hi everyone. Just looking for some advice.

I recently lost my job and my former employer notified me over a call, and the reason was that they’re just too busy to train me.

I know that’s not true because they hired 2 new people the following week.

What would be the appropriate steps to take in this situation? Thank you for any advice!
