Is the SPHR or PHR license necessary to pivot into human capital? I have a MBA from a Top 15 school. Any thoughts?

Depends on what kind of human capital work you wanna do. Based on my exp you don’t need it. Deloitte human capital practice has tons of MBAs with no SPHR or PHR

SPHR and PHR are not licenses, just certifications. SHRM has new tupes of certifications as well. In my experience they do not open doors but some employers in industry do look for them if you are more junior.

In consulting no. In industry it can be a deciding factor between you and someone similar background, but honestly not needed or a huge difference in success within a role

Within the firms, it can help you get staffed faster than someone who doesn’t have one. HC is quite different than HR. In PwC, HR consulting is within HC, but it is a small sub-set.

I'd only consider it if you're going to industry in a Bueiness Partner type role. I've been in HR in industry and I've never had either.

HR work is only one small part of what we do in HC at Deloitte, so it really depends on what you want to do.

It’s not important for consulting in the human capital space. Just industry

You don’t need these licenses if you look at P&O

I’ve been with my current company for just over 6 months as a BDR. (3 yrs prior sales experience, but this is my first tech role.)
Even though it meant starting at the bottom, I took this role for the opportunity it would provide, as my previous industry didn’t have growth potential.
A role just opened up on a CSM team that would be a much better fit— the official policy is that you stay in your role for 12 months before moving. Should I apply for the CSM opening anyway? What would you do?

I am an HR Business Partner at my current company but have been afforded a few human capital consulting opportunities with various big 4 firms. I don’t think I’d want to make a career out of it given the long hours, however I’m contemplating accepting the role and doing consulting for 2 years and then going back to industry. Is this a practical path? How hard is the transition from consulting to industry and what sort of roles have ppl landed that did transition to industry? Would love advice!
