Trying to see if MBA is worth for me - I've just accepted an account director at an agency for $140K, 6 yoe, and trying to seek for MBA in order to transition into tech marketing. I heard that it's only worth it if the salary would double, but since I'm in HCOL I would hope that won't be the case. When you were trying to gauge if MBA is worth for you, what resources help you the most?

‘Worth it’ should take into account more than just money. It should include: 1) do you need to expand/build your network, 2) can you do a career switch/progression without it, 3) do you want a fun 2 year vacation, 4) do you want the ‘insurance’ a top MBA adds to your career, etc. fwiw, my post MBA increase will probably only be like 30% and I probably could have done that without the MBA.

Also, doubling salary is definitely not the right benchmark… that’s skewed by internationals who stay in the states (and a little by crazy career switchers). Most people coming from business aren’t anywhere close to a 100% increase.

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.
