Usually certifications don’t weigh your CV up but after the certification, your CV would have keywords like “Microsoft” “Certified” “Data”
I think that would increase the likelihood of your CV being picked up by the algorithms
So there’s no harm in going forward with this ✌🏻

Does anyone have the 2020 SHRM books for sale or to borrow? My job won’t contribute towards my certification. I’ve already paid for my test. I have the books from 2015 but I’d like to study from the 2020. I tried finding them online to purchase but sellers of affordable books aren’t responding.

EHs you need to know that core consulting skills - thinking strategically, being able to work well on a team, communicating orally (especially in team & client meetings) & in writing, storyboarding & PPT, plus delivering polished error free documents (spelling, grammar, punctuation, fonts, etc.) - will be critical to success at this firm. You can have amazing tech skills + deep knowledge, but if you don’t have core consulting skills, you’re dead in the water.

I have a offer between IT Strategy & Corporate Strategy same level both fortune 50’s. Which on has better pay over the long run, and better growth opportunities? I’ve always been learning more about digital and have some tech skills but Corporate is on the buisness side and is always seen as a better exit.

Hi all - would love some insight! About a year ago I switched to a client and product growth director role and am now thinking about doing my EMBA. Reason being, would want to eventually move into an executive or potentially head of growth role. The cost obviously is a huge factor but wondering if anyone has a perspective on whether it’s worth doing? I think at a certain point in a career it makes sense but curious if people think they are “still”worth such a crazy investment of money and time.
