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.

KPMG vs Capgemini Invent? Which do you think is a better choice? I’ve been offered a similar level role with similar compensation in both. Working within FS and data consulting. Long term I’d like to move to a tier-1/ tier-2 consultancy. Thanks!
How do people in your company view your digital / agency group (I.e. Deloitte digital, McKinsey digital, Accenture interactive)? I’d say at Accenture, interactive is highly respected and given a lot of attention. Many of our big acquisitions have been in this area as well as some of our coolest projects and credentials. Also as opposed to Accenture strategy where it might be someone’s 5th choice to go to, interactive tends to be people’s first choice given our mkt position

What are peoples thoughts on two different career paths within public accounting. One is the typical longer hours like 55 hours or more during busy season and the other one is 40 hours a week all year long with a reduced salary, almost like a reduced schedule employee. The reduced hour career path allows you to enjoy whatever you enjoy about public without the long hours but your career progression will be similar to industry and the other path is pretty much what it is now. Thoughts?
I am switching jobs and my wife is pregnant.
