New fish looking for career guidance. I'm a corporate recruiter with 3 years of experience. Finishing my degree in HRM 5/2022. I'm thinking of getting my SHRM -CP shortly after graduation. I'm not sure of where to go after that, but I doubt I will stick with recruiting or my current firm. Has anyone here started off in recruiting and branched out to other HR functions? Do you like your new role? Do you wish you stuck with recruiting?

Recruiting was one of my first HR functions, and I really enjoyed it. I was an internal recruiter, and it gave me exposure to relationship management with hiring managers and external recruiters, workforce planning, and compensation. I moved from TA into more holistic Talent and Org Development, because I found my interests are more aligned with the projects in this arena. TA is a great career for someone who thrives in fast-paced, process-driven work. While I was successful, it was not a natural fit for me. I work better on long-term initiatives that need lots of planning and execution. I'm asking these questions now, you're setting yourself up for a great career no matter what path you choose.

Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
