If a product gets to market with a serious bug it’s rarely the fault of a single person. I’d be looking at test plans, quality, requirements management, etc. Technically these phones passed all those things despite that bug. Blaming an individual is just lazy.

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.

What are the best reasons to go full-time after freelancing? I started freelancing a month ago after I was laid off thinking it would just be temporary but I’m really enjoying it so far.

For those who have taken a full time gig after a successful freelance run, what did you base your decision on?

I'm a first year atty. I make $45K at a small firm of 5. In the last three weeks, my assistant has been fired (caught with pot on break), another paralegal quit, and now another assistant has resigned. I have a caseload of 80, with no help. Boss says they are looking, they made an offer, but if that person accepts, it will be weeks before they are ready. I'm falling apart and crying at my desk and can't sleep. Told owner. "Hang in there." Do I walk now? Or hang in there?

I started a new job and was originally supposed to be on two accounts but got pulled off one to focus on the other. It’s now giving me a ton of anxiety. I just know if we loose that one account, I’m laid off whereas if I’m more diversified I have a better shot not being laid off. We’re not in review or anything so my question is…am I being paranoid or am I right to be worried?

Something isn’t quite adding up for me, though I haven’t been in consulting long so it may be my ignorance. People say MBB has great exit opps, but none of the “sexy” ones thrown around (e.g., PE, PM) directly translate from consulting, and the those that do (internal consulting / corp strat) aren’t met with much enthusiasm. What am I missing?
