Is it worth it to get a professional certification like SHRM/PHR? Not many of my colleagues have one and it’s not a requirement for my role, but I’m curious if it’s worth it in the long run

I think it helped me when I was job searching. Not absolutely critical if you have other relevant experience. But I think some companies filter for it. But if you aren’t on the job hunt or a company isn’t sponsoring the cost, I prob would hold off. Also I think a lot of the expensive review courses aren’t worth it.

I have one. No one has ever asked even what it is.

Yes! You may or may not apply it in your current role, but you never know where your next move will be. This will make you that much more marketable when seeking something new and adds a sense of credibility to you within your profession. Highly encourage it.

I think it depends on where you want to work! I’ve worked in start-up type settings where hands on learning is valued more than formal certifications, but more established companies may feel differently. I’ve been able to build my career without certifications and don’t see a need for them. (Which I’m grateful for because I’m a terrible test-taker)

I'm frustrated. Everywhere I've worked I've gotten great reviews and even leadership awards. At my last company my boss was promoted to CAO. She hired a director but made her VP of HR at hire due to someone leaving. VP ran 6 HR directors out of the co (we all left without jobs lined up). After I left my team quit & the CAO was fired. Now they promoted this VP to a Sr VP. I gave so much, got nothing, yet she fell into SVP. I have a new Director level job. How do I break into the VP level?
