Is there ever a benefit to telling your RL that you don’t see yourself staying long term? At the SM level and I’m really just over it. Trying to figure out how some people have navigated getting referred to openings at clients. We’re short staffed so don’t foresee them turning around and letting me go just by virtue of expressing this isn’t my long term plan. However, can see how it may ding future ratings so probably best to keep my mouth shut

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.
