How beneficial will a CISA be? I’m trying to level set my expectations on how much the CISA will help on applications and such. I have 6 YOE, 4.5 in tech admin type roles and internal IT audit in industry & 1.5 in IT audit consulting, I have an M.S.IT degree. I’m taking the CISA exam next month.. will the CISA help me stand out more, or help me get to the front of the pack of applicants (for IT audit positions), per se? Curious what everyone’s opinions are..

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
