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.

Hi All, I wish to join one of the top consulting firms like McKinsey, BCG, B&C etc. I am currently working as a Business Analyst with a work ex of 3 years. I have started exploring on my own and one thing that came out different were Case Studies interviews and I have started reading and preparing for them. I will do MBA also post working in one of these firms. I was hoping if anyone can help me to prepare better or suggest a plan to land a job for a role that aligns with my ambitions. Thank You

So that y’all know: I reached out to Fishbowl Leadership yesterday and told them to be on the lookout for racist, trolling, or otherwise disrespectful posts regarding the uprisings going on due to the deaths of our people.

I really don’t understand the hate against Diversity and Inclusion efforts. I grew up hearing my parents worry about being passed over for promotions and denied opportunities, due to race. It’s a real concern for black professionals.

At Cisco and haven't gotten a raise since I've been here in almost 3y. I didn't pursue it the first 2y because I had close family deaths and poor performance. Now I'm outperforming my peers and ready to look elsewhere. Word on the street is that my org is getting stiffed pretty hard during focals. Any chance of bringing an outside offer to the table and getting a raise? Promotion? Just curious what your experiences are like. Managers, tech leads, whatever..
