Don’t take a title bump down (assuming you’re manager and below). You need to be able to articulate on your resume / Interview how your skills apply to the role. IA - focus on process, how you’ll meet with your peers to understand the way of doing things and be able to use your past experience and experience understanding process to pick up the task at hand. IT - you should be able to quickly adapt to new and evolving systems in a time when IT expertise is highly valued. It will allow you to quickly contribute and get up to speed, etc. Think through the job descriptions you’re interested in and find ways to make your past roles relatable. Customize your resume and interviews accordingly. With a diverse set of experience and a license, it’s no doubt you’ll be able to learn quickly and just need to illustrate that point.

I see most postings asking for regular financial statement external audit experience, which I don’t have. Does it translate or do you take a title bump down? I have my CPA, just concerned I don’t have an adequate background for accounting/finance.

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.
