Lmao! Effing Skype never picks up anyone saying the one critical thing. But one growl, burp, or background noise and it's perfectly transmitted!

After 12+ years in FTE roles both agency and brand side in strategy/brand marketing/social strat roles. Thinking about taking it freelance. But I’ve never done freelance or consulting before - ever. Would love to connect with someone who’s done this (or does it on the side) - would anyone be open to do a Zoom call with me to answer questions/give me advice? As a token of my appreciation, I’d send you a Drizly (or Seamless, DoorDash, or UberEats) gift card so we could make it a happy hour!

I think PGA/LPGA camera operators are very under appreciated. I mean, the skill it takes to spot, zoom in, and track a tiny golf ball flying through the air at 150+mph over and over and from multiple angles is incredible. I literally can’t follow my own golf ball leaving my club much less someone else’s with a camera mounted on my shoulder.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
