Is change management a skill set used by industry? I want to position myself to have options in a few years, but I just don't see that as being an FTE function.

It's a nice skill to bring to the table, but not enough as a standalone platform.

Yes. Particularly in large corporations.

Absolutely, we have an entire practice (T&OP) around this and usually represents 25% of my fees on a large global transformation program.

CM is such an ambiguous term, I'd focus on identifying your personal niche and leverage that to "brand" yourself. At a tactical level CM can be focused on training / learning dev. and comms. At a strategic level it can be org transformation / design, leadership dev., etc. All of these have their place in industry and can be high demand if properly branded.

Yes, especially with the changing populations of millennials and the shifting out of the aging work force then globalization. You need people who understand the people issues from a business perspective.

Yes, but it's not a high demand one

Yes - I used to work in industry for a Fortune 50 company, and we had a few people in HR that focused on change management. But best to broaden your skill set with complimentary Human Capital skills.

That skill with a lean six sigma black belt would be stronger

Yes

You're going to have to be in an IT shop of >500, to have a dedicated CM role

I'm curious about this as well, does change management always translate to HR in industry?

No, it can be in IT as well. HR is more focused on organizational change and IT more system implementation

Yes, it's an increasingly valued skill set and no, it doesn't always translate to HR. I have a few clients who are adding CM roles within their strategy/execution functions.

In my last job, my team was under reorg. CRO brought in a guy who had done this for at least four large teams. He is famous in the CRO org for this. So it can be an FTE function but very rare.

Is this a lowball offer for an Associate Counsel position at a well-known Phila/Wilmington international media conglomerate? 120k base, 15% bonus, and $20K RSU. (FYI, third-year associate here.) Don’t know if I should walk away if no wiggle room to move up from base or accept just as an entry point. Worried that I’ll be stuck with this as an anchor. Also, if I get promoted to Counsel in a few years, will my salary jump or will it be a small increase? Thanks in advance for any advice/input!

Got an offer for a job that will start in February of 2022. I’m planning on giving my 2 weeks soon and taking a 2-3 month break before the next position starts to just relax and take some time off. I’m young now (mid 20s) and I don’t think I’ll get a chance to take several months off between jobs again after this. Will this gap in employment be a potential issue down the road? I may be thinking too much into this, but would like some advice. TIA
