A1 that's what I normally do and ended up doing. I totally freaked this one guy out when asking him. It was so bad it was funny. A guy was using the bench press to sit in to do bicep curls and most had the worst form and too much weight. Meanwhile a guy was hogging an Olympic rack to do foam rolling and another guy was hogging one to do push-ups. I seriously want to correct some of these people on form and also advise them of some of the written and unwritten rules but know it's largely not my place. I used to be skinny AF when I started lifting at 14 so know it can be intimidating but want to help these people out.

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.

For those who exit to industry, do you find recruiters lowball? They often quote a salary based on YOE and their standard pay - often lower because their salary progression is slower. 4YOE at consulting you make $120k~$150k but they quote $100k because that’s how they pay their homegrown analysts. Nobody thus far thinks 4y at consulting is worth 5-6 YOE, I’ve even met someone who only match me to their 2-3 YOE analyst because they think their program is more prestigious and want to hold me back.
