Question for consulting folks- how do you stay motivated after you got into your role for 2plus years? I can’t tell if I’m just getting lazier month by month or I’m just finding work less important. I am hopping this is a bump and I get over it shortly. Anyone else feel This now or at some point in their career?

I have had my share of stretches where I feel that and the current environment doesn't help. When I find I am excited about work it's when I have been able to find a new opportunity which often means going out and creating one. Mentor, coach, pick a different method to expirment with, find something outside your comfort zone to challenge you. Just switching roles and jobs isn't always the best first thing. Once you try this you may find a different role might be what you need, but I wouldn't start there.

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.
