Should I continue in startup TA/Recruiting or go back to agency and build out my own business? What has more future stability given the recent news in tech layoffs?

That's a really personal choice. I left agency to work an RPO. I've also worked as an internal recruiter, which has its own set of challenges (base pay only, no bonus, toxic cultures, limited career development).

Job security is not guaranteed in any industry.

It helps to be a top performer. Plan to exceed expectations and everything else will falls in place.

Hey there ladies,
I was wanting to know if it’s possible to start a career as a Project Manager in the marketing/advertisement world? I have a few years of PM experience without the “official title” of Project manager. I am close to finishing my Grow with Google Project Management Program as I am now on course 6/6. I’m not looking for any kind of mid-level position. Simply trying to get my foot in the door as a PM for the marketing industry and wanting to know if that’s a realistic goal.

I am curious to know if other HR professionals in small businesses are experiencing this issue. The leadership at my company is becoming more and more reluctant with the idea of hiring domestically.
