News says many are poised to resign if going back to the office will be the norm. There are many vacant roles in LinkedIn and other job-hunting sites and yet few people are getting hired. Is the algorithm of recruitment software to blame that misses matching qualified persons with companies and roles? Is this keyword guessing the culprit that's why your CV in pdf format does not make the cut?

Parents who have or have had a baby. How was the first year or two for you? Was it awesome, was it terrible, did it change your relationship with your partner? Did you regret it, did you want out? I've heard that having a baby can really change things between you and your partner and that a lot of marriages fall apart at that point. Just interested in stories and feedback.
Also curious if one partner kind of pressured the other into having a child/was driving force in wanting the baby.

Based on the various threads I came across, it appears that it’s best to transfer from tax compliance to M&A tax at the senior level.
I’m up for Manager this fall, and presumably the transfer, either internal or external would not happen until then. Would I be setting myself up for failure if I transfer as a manager? I can’t imagine being successful in managing deals and identifying issues at a manager level..

Should I get the CAPM or go straight for the PMP?
I currently work for the fed government as a contract specialist for 2.5 years but have been thinking about making career change to project management. I also have a masters in public administration. I know you need 3 years of experience in PM to get a PMP but I wanted to know if it would be possible to sit for the exam without the experience?
