HR/human capital/PAS consultant 🐠: If I have a Masters degree in HR and 2 years experience, is it worth it to get the aPHR or SHRM-CP? Or is the Masters degree enough? Should I wait for SPHR/SHRM-SCP

I would look into getting an ABCD-EF

Wait for the SPHR /SCP. The PHR level is more tactical and deals less with strategy. Assuming you're looking to go into industry or bolster your credibility with clients, the SPHR gives you a much better avenue for that.

I am currently on maternity leave and returning to work in about 2.5 months. I work in PA and have been thinking about a career move lately. On one hand I want to return to work with something I am familiar with to help with the transition, but the thought of going through another busy season and constant demand at work is just dreadful.. Has anyone successfully landed another job while still on maternity leave, and how was your experience?

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!

Which offer should I accept? Currently staff 2 at big 4 in Tax with CPA license. I want to leave tax ASAP. Both are public companies +1B in revenue and same salary. Offer 1 - staff revenue accountant so reading contracts, speaking with the sales team and legal team, a lot of work at the end of the months to close books and reconcile transactions to make sure we are ASC 606 compliant. This track usually leads to director of revenue. Offer 2 - internal audit staff so SOX and compliance projects.

It seems like many of you started your careers in big 4 audit before switching to TAS, AAS, RX, etc. As an auditor, I find audit work so mind numbingly boring, and I feel like I need something more stimulating. So are those fields actually that much more interesting than audit? Or do they solely open more doors into finance?

Am I better off pitching how my corporate experience would transfer, or should I entertain a lateral move or intracompany switch to get more experience?
