What are you looking to do?

Something where the HC skillset readily transfers

“HC skill set” can mean tons of different things depending on what work you’ve done and how you spin it. You can take it in tons of different directions. Are you looking to move to another practice at Deloitte?

Well, I would figure out what you like about the work you do now, and what you don’t like. Ex: I love designing training and communications strategies but dislike getting in front of people for training. Or vice versa. Then from there, you can develop a target position (switching to a role in strategy, or a role as a event facilitator in the Greenhouse, maybe, if either of the scenarios above applies). Your next step is to a) tailor your current position and/or pick up firm initiatives and/or sign up for training to address any skills gaps between you and your target position and b) to start networking with people in your target area, since you’ll need somebody who likes you to “pull” you over. It’s a relatively straightforward process, just requires some introspection and honesty with yourself about what you really want to do and what skills you have.

Which group in human capital? There are a few of us at S&.

I don’t do HC

F

I exited from HC consulting to industry - lots of roles where you can leverage your background without being an HRBP/Generalist such as: Sr Manager/Director/VP roles in HR Strategy, Hr Ops, HR Shared Services, Benefits, Talent, D&I, etc

I left HC and went to Talent

I am just between a career pivot and I need some advice. I graduated in Biochemistry near the top of my class with an expectation to go into medicine so I had been working in clinical research.

What is the best way to proceed? (I don't even know how to align my resume for this pivot...)

US GC vs Canadian PR. I was born in a non-crazy queue country and already have my Canadian PR (through express entry).

Lots of student debt, so need to replenish coffers too. Been in America for 5+ years and employer is starting GC process now. Objective reflections please :)

Does anyone else do breakfast/morning meetings at home and then come into the office at around 10/11? This gives me the perks of extra sleep and a non-rushed breakfast while still satisfying the office requirement. Or do your offices tacitly require you to be in by 9 if you’re coming in for the day?

I just had an epiphany - I hate to manage people. I got promoted from C -> SC in ~1 year because I'm good at my job. At the SC level, I now have to oversee 2 C's and one of them is decent but the other is so bad. How do you teach someone to be a critical thinker? Or be detail oriented? I don't want this to hold me back from progressing in my career but truly, how do I learn patience when mentoring folks who lack core consulting skills? We're all adults and I don't want to start micromanaging.
