I think it's a good assumption. I plan to be quitting soon, believe me it'll be after the Holidays so I don't miss the free pay :)

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.

Who should I trade for? 12 team standard league. Feel like I have too much depth on the bench (Elijah Mitchell, Julio, diante Johnson, devonta smith) to not make a trade. I’m thinking I would probably be open to trading for a top tier wr, Rb, or tight end. Or even consider trading for a middle of the pack tight end.
