Just did an interview few hours ago for a procurement role. I’m currently an audit associate a year in. Is it normal for the interviewer to be grilling me about why I want leave PA? (Half the interview was about why I want to leave PA, and he kept countering my reasons for wanting the procurement role with reasons why PA is better) Seemed a lot more like an interview for an audit role.. 🥲

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.
