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.

Does anyone know if M7 schools offering deferred MBA admission forbid you from applying to other MBA programs down the line if accepted? e.g. say you get accepted to Kellogg/Columbia deferred programs, but want to apply to H/W/S in 2-3 years - are there any issues with this? I’ve anecdotally heard it’s not a problem and you just give up any non-refundable fees deposited but curious to hear if someone knows

Got an offer from a T2 at 1 level before the Post-MBA level. Current firm offered to match base comp with guaranteed promo to Post-MBA level. Benefits of staying would be the established network and higher rank but T2 has higher comp progression. T2 post-MBA comp would be ~50% higher in 1.5 to 2 years. Should I take the promo or leave to chase the higher potential compensation? Intend to leave consulting in 3 years. Career levels are BA > SBA > Assoc (post-MBA level) > Manager

Does anyone remember using Philosophical Chairs as a strategy in the classroom?

I certainly hope they cling to that rather than mimicking the actions of their predecessors. 🤦‍♀️
