In consulting neither matters honestly. if you're looking to head into industry as HR, SPHR will do you good, if you're looking to do project management then PMP. it never hurts to get either one but if you're trying to leverage them, industry would value them more.

I'm human capital as well. In my experience the people who have SPHR and PMP and other alphabet soup in their email signatures are often the least effective team members. Do good work, make clients happy, think innovatively and you'll be fine. You can do all those things without a certification

What does SPHR and PMP stand for?

Super peak human resource.
