Assurance associate at RSM. One thing I hate= having a never ending to do list in busy season and feeling like you are always behind. Thing I love= the flexibility and freedom, more so during non busy season. I sometimes would work in the afternoon and evenings and take the morning off when I just feel like it and nobody would ever mind since I would still get my work done.

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.

My last day with Deloitte was a week ago - I signed several authorization forms allowing them to withhold from my final paycheck the 1/2 of my sign-on bonus I owe back for leaving in 1.5 years, sans some FICA taxes.

It’s to the point that if it wasn’t on the same thread as the original email, I would assume it’s a scam. Wtf?

I had a 1st round interview last week and I didn’t love the sound of the job. It’s in higher ed. It would also be a 20k pay cut (105 -> 85). They want to do a final round with me this week.
