Im interested in becoming a HR Generalist and I am well versed in TA & HR but I get passed on b/c I have 1.7 years of experience. Is it possible to fill in labor laws and employee relations skill gap or would I really need to learn this from experience?

Hi. When you write well versed in HR from what prescriptive or hole? I highly recommend that you obtain the PHR cert. is it possible for you to list the tasks or roles you have been in.

I would recommend listing the names of the systems you have used on your resume!

Hey there, I just joined FishBowl a few minutes ago so happy to give you my input. I obtained my PHR certification in 2010 and have been in HR since but personally, I don't think the certification will make all of the difference in getting you that first HRG role, I would recommend getting an entry-level HR job and working your way up from there since every company handles situations differently. With that said, W+K is hiring a coordinator for the NY office!

People with 1.7 years of experience can be better than people with 25. You can learn all you need to learn, but experience gives you the advantage of being situationally confident to do the right thing. I’ve hired many people with almost no experience because they were clearly smart and had other experience that indicated they would be fabulous in TA

And you do need more experience

I’m pretty sure colleagues at my firm are inflating their billable hours. Is this the norm? I suspect many of you will think this is obvious and/or that I’m naive but wtf? I find hitting 2200 is tough even with a good sized work load. Am I just expected to play the game? I don’t want to sound self-righteous but if most are lying just to make the requirement, then maybe the requirement should be lower.

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications

I had a major client interview scheduled for today with a very sr client for potential job- it has taken forever to book. An hour before the meeting my Internet went out. I live in a remote area so I don’t have cell service (my husband was out running errands so no car to drive anywhere). I missed the interview and had to followup when it got back on. We rescheduled for wed but I’m pretty horrified. Sent apologies with weak explanation of Internet. How to handle when we finally speak?

Would love to hear your thoughts. I moved to a F100 company a few months ago as an FP&A analyst after a few years of big4, as I was concerned I was gonna get stuck in audit/financial accounting positions. My plan was to get some analyst experience and jump again next year, as I'm conscious of the slow progression in industry and wanted a career with commercial/strategic focus. Now I'm not sure, if I should stick with the plan or boomerang back into an advisory role due to the market demands.
