I feel for all of those being laid off. Truly best of luck finding something. One thing I realized as a millennial in consulting is job security is non existent.

I was technically laid off after 8 months with the firm as a campus hire. I had to fight my way back and get senior MD involved to reverse the decision my MD made to cut head count. All of this was due to being staffed on a client project but not chargeable for 4 months. So technically I was only on the bench for 2 months after initial training. Since then I realized no matter what company you work for you are expendable. All of this happened less than a year at the firm. With most students graduating with tons of student loans and relocating to cities where rent is sky high I am truly loss to what our generation will look like in 20+ years.

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.
