I can offer you a PwC referral if you are interested in a larger firm and more money.

It happens. Dm me and send over your resume, we still have some openings for this season. I'm happy to review your resume and check if we have a role that fits your experience and/ or what niche you're looking for experience in

Advice for motivation: they don't deserve to have you as a motivated employee? Lol. If you like your managers, think of it as doing them a favor when you do a great job now and building up a strong network of professionals who will give you good reviews and feedback, and be references in the future.

Dm for EY referral

Did you ask for more?

Have you had success doing this?

I just had my first annual performance review meeting with my manager this past Friday. She had nothing but good things to say about my work, effort etc. thus far. After that she indicated a raise of a little less than 3%. Is this something I can counter?

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.
