Im having a difficult time putting my role into words for performance feedback. I hate that the story has to be theater rather than my day to day. I feel extreme anxiety since I am new to consulting and don’t quite know how to define my role to make it more accepted for end of year reviews

Ask some trusted colleagues who have been around longer, and your career counselor, for advice on how to frame things. You are not alone in wondering how to handle reviews. And as a newbie, it isn't really rocket science, and the outcome may not vary too much. So don't stress too much.

"I am amazing and my job performance reflected this". Be bold. Let them argue you down. Yes, I have done that before when i first started in consulting out of college. It worked, I got great reviews.

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.
