Sort of a weird question to ask. i doubt it makes a difference after 3 tries. 9 tries will probably give you the same result.

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.

I’m in M&A tax and want to get out of a tax-specific role, ideally into a CDD role.

Not expecting to have tenure transfer over. When I post in the consulting bowl looking for referrals, people act as if I’m flipping burgers at Wendy’s. Any advice on making this switch/have you seen someone go from a TDD to CDD role?
