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

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.

Hey everyone! Which is more beneficial in the new normal - a Master’s in HR/ Industrial Organizational Psychology, or a SHRM certification? Context: I’ve been in the corporate TA space for 10 years and now looking to level up my career in HR - focus would be on TA and Talent Management . Any advice?

I’m currently working with a senior level HR candidate. This individual has a doctorate in business with a focus in HR, her SPHR, Federal, and private sector experience at the singer level, and has a fabulous personality. I’m curious is anyone else having difficulties play some candidates like this? At this point I’m starting to think it’s racial or her sex based of the lack of interest in this candidate. Any thoughts?

I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
