He’s working to get his CAPM early March 2023 and should have his associates in business be the end of 2023. And advice is appreciated :)

Can't help but feel like I'm in a rut. I'm 23 and realized I still haven't accomplished goals that I set when I was 20. I waste copious amounts of time on Netflix. I keep losing weight only to gain it back. I bought a standing desk and am still sitting on my bed to work. I told myself I'm going to accomplish XYZ certification exams over a year ago and started studying 3 or 4 times only to quit studying 3 days in. How do I stop being such a loser. I feel pathetic
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?

How do you deal with parental guilt when you have to miss things? When my child was a baby it wasn't as big of a deal as long as I was around for the big stuff and was pulling my weight parent wise. Now that they're 4+ everything is big stuff, and every time I can't be there it really affects them. I know being successful in my career will set them up for the future, but it feels like I'm letting them down right now.

Hey y'all! I'm about to start being a manager of a new temp to hire employee, and to be honest, I'm terrified I will either be a pushover or be over demanding due to how deadline driven the proposal writing process is and lack of the ability to say no to some people who bring the proposals to me to write. Do you have any advice on how to start learning to manage others? I currently mentor a few new grads to help them learn the basics of how to work in different sectors as a professional.

I work for a huge company for 11 years and haven’t been happy for a while. I feel emotionally attached to it because of great benefits, my growth (had multiple roles) and overall culture. Leaving it feels almost like ending a marriage (nuts, right?). Have you ever felt this way about your career before? I’ve seen people leaving and regretting it and seen people leaving and telling me there’s life post XYZ company.
I’d appreciate any thoughts and reading your pov.
Hello ladies!! Who run the world?
I don't EVER do this, but I have to make a really big decision and I LITERALLY have no idea what to do So when I applied to be a supervisor at UPMC Mckee I wanted that position sooo badly that I would NOT leave the manager alone and then he hired me ❤️ I was hired at Flex full-time which meant I was ONLY gauranteed 28 hrs a week. There are 3 supervisors altogether, 2 are salary and then the flex is hourly. Well the week I got hired the 2nd sup put his 2 weeks in so for the first 2 mnths the othe
Hiya… Can we really have it all?
I’m due to go back to work after some time off & not sure how to approach a salary discussion…
I was due for a promotion b4 leaving & that may still be on the table … however the current business unit I work in doesn’t have a good financial projection this year..so may offer less than 7% but with all the increases and now living in London that will go straight to the tax man… how do I negotiate a salary increase pls?
Ever feel like you don’t deserve what you have? I’m currently struggling with my worth. I’ve got 20+ years experience in my field, finally promoted to manager 2 years ago, and it’s been brought to my attention that I could be moved to Director. I am a work horse and have contributed so much, but the word Director scares me. Why am I like this?
Thoughts on changing your name for marriage?? I really don’t want to change my name - I feel like that is my identity, I have a career, I love my family name. My SO & I are on very different pages...
I want to learn to ask for what I want at work re: salary, opportunities to work on projects that grow skill sets versus only using the skills I was hired for. I want to feel like my voice is heard when I have an idea or solution. But I find that culturally I’ve been fighting this mental space that says don’t make waves, work hard because it’s the right thing to do. I read the books, listen to the Ted talks but still find my voice easily silenced. Advice?
I’m struggling with corns/calluses on my left foot - they hurt because of all the heels too. Any one have any good ideas ?
Tips for working with a very big-personality Sales Director? He is a micro-manager-type that is always on you about things that is not his place, I want to tell him to stay in his lane so much. I am very much NOT that way and give my team lots of ownership/responsibility.
We actually get along very well, but there are some weeks where I should/want to say something so he understands how condescending his tone is.
Approved by doctor/HR to remain remote and it’s not going over well( we were told we would remain remote, which included giving up our desks, but are now being asked to come in two days). The person who seemed the most annoyed by my request is my direct boss. I found it odd because she announced she was only doing one day because she was pregnant and the director was basically like “ok”. I don’t want to put a target on my back and I do enjoy the work. Should I just bite the bullet and come in?
When does the “oh she’s strong she can handle it” go too far? I’ve been noticing peers delivering things that are complete crap and our lead calmly/nicely suggests changes, no timeline to turn back around. ME?? I have been & would be directly and harshly told what all is wrong and to figure it out ASAP. I know im a tough cookie and can handle it but damn…it’s frustrating to see and know if that were me the reaction would be much different. I’m not being dramatic…other people see it too.
