Currently articling at a firm & I have 10 days of vacation. Office is closed for a week (Xmas to new year). I’m taking off an additional 4 days in December but not consecutively. When putting in my request, I’ve had two partners tell me “That’s fine with me, but just so you know lawyers typically don’t take off 2 weeks” and the other tell me “okay, but I never took vacation for the first 4 years of my practice and be prepared to log on if we need you.” Has anyone else experienced this?

Hi all, I really need some advice. I am a 2nd year associate at a small sex abuse firm in CA. I am also a single woman who lives alone in a city with very high cost of living. At my year, I requested a raise but was given 5k short of what I requested. A few months later, 1) my finances changed and 2) I began budgeting for student loans .. which are set to re-start on 8/31. I told my boss that come September, with what my finances are projected to be, I may no longer be able to work (cont.)

Hi ladies👋🏾 I’d love some vacay hair advice. I’m going to Puerto Rico in a couple of weeks and usually I would do my own box braids, but I feel like I want a different look. Has anyone had a successful beach vacay with a leave-out sew-in? I don’t like closures but my hair at the top is soft and loose-ish (like 4a) so it can easily be styled even when frizzed out. I would get loose wave bundles to match. Good idea or should I just stick to braids?

Hi, would like to get your feedback and guidance. Within the brokerage industry we see a lot of people holding titles of AVP, VP, SVP and EVP. Can someone help me understand the criteria for each and if there is a salary range? Where do you think an individual with a B.S in a technical field, a M.S, licensed broker and with 18 years of combined experience in underwriting, risk management and brokerage should be at if working for a global broker?

I’m looking for a screening tool that will assess a candidate’s proficiency with MS-Teams. Would anyone know if there is such a thing that exists?
I’m not old BUT when I was younger I thought it was important to have all the alphabets after my name (I.e. Phr, SHRM and all the others). I learning that the younger crowd coming into the market thrives off these identifiers yet they know very little about the real world aspects of the job. I watch leadership roll their eyes at the email footers. I feel like keeping those attached to my name hurts my credibility so I removed them…. I’m I thinking wrong?
Hello HR friends ! Looking for advice and your willingness to share your experience.
I have a manager who approached to say he has a contractor that has been underperforming for the last few months. He wants to termina his agreement.
We are a startup and we don’t have a policy in place but I’m pretty sure we should take some measures before taking the final decision.
Would you like to share what steps you take? How do you approach the situation?
SPHR exam- has anyone ever been “randomly selected” for an application audit? This just happened to me and the sheer amount of effort that is going to go into collecting all the documents almost makes me not want to follow through. Since I didn’t finish undergrad, they’re asking for a copy of my high school diploma or transcript and that itself is going to be an absolute nightmare to get hold of. Guess I’m not really looking for a solution here, just venting.
Do recommendations on LinkedIn provide any value to potential employers? Do recruiters look at them? What do recruiters look at on a LinkedIn profile?
So, a recruiter gave me feedback that my lack SPHR or SHRM-SCP is causing my resume to be knock out by AI and human recruiters despite my position and work history in Multinationals and being in Technology. They suggested that we put SPHR ( Lapsed). I let it lapse in 2017. What is your opinion? Plus if I were to take another certification - should I take SPHR or SHRM-SCP?
PHR or SHRM-CP?
Anyone one work at EA or know someone who does? If so what’s it like and would it be worth exploring opportunities there?
I had my PHR back in early 2000, then made a career change to a paramedic (I know, right). I called SHRM and they said I'm eligible to test again even though I only currently have 1.5 yrs of HR.
I purchased the online study guide and it seems that HR has gone in a completely different direction - more operations related than employee relations etc.
Did anyone find this online training to be helpful? I test in July, so any tips would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks - lauren

I would love insight on different ideas for smoothing over the team after a disgruntled employee cried "hostile work environment" in regards to the President of the company throughout the office.
We were able to resolve the situation itself, however I worry about the impact of the team and how to best effectively bring the team back together and to help them feel confident that the President is there to support them.

I’ve been with my organization a little over a year and we’ve had major transitions and turnover that took me from starting as a recruiter coordinator to a hr generalist, and now an interim hr manager. I have a masters degree in industrial organizational psychology and while I am new to HR have professional work experience in other fields-military, teacher, training specialist. I love what I do. Should I apply for the hr manager position with only a year of hr work history? Do I have a chance?
