It’s not the most important factor but it’s a factor. They’ll handicap your UG gpa depending on your UG school. A Harvard UG 3.9 is a lot more impressive than a random state school 3.9 for example.

PWC1, immediately post-MBA its a factor because many MBA programs have grade non-disclosure so for academics they look at UG gpa and GMAT. They have to take into account school quality with gpa.

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.
