I almost read it as IDGAF and was wondering if such certification exists for a moment

I read material for an hour the night before and passed. Not really sure of the value though.

How frequently do you want to create network diagrams in Visio in the future?

☝lol. There should be an IDGAF cert! A cert for ruthless savages that separate the BS and get work done at all costs.

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?

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 firm is paying for my MBA and if I leave now I’ll have to pay anything they’ve paid all back. Assuming I leave now, would it be possible for me to get a student loan to pay the firm back or would it have to be a personal loan since it’s not going directly to school to but rather paying the firm for school? What are my options? Has anyone gone through this before? Thanks!!

During the screening, she asked why I changed employers so quickly didn’t ask me to ask questions.
