The only reason I can see why you'd need to do it is for the purpose of soliciting letters of recommendation.

No brainer ,of course!

It depends on the relationship you have with your bosses. With my last Principal, they'd only know if I got an offer and decided to take it. He was narrow focused, a climber, and had no interest in me as a human or teacher. With my current Principal, I'd be consulting her before I even considered it. She cares about me, education beyond her school, my career and is trust worthy.

We always do letters of intent at my school, even if you are returning. We just filled them out. You get to say if you are staying, leaving or what grade/position you want to be in. I finally got check big fat leaving box.

I wouldn't even tell them about the interview unless you weren't intending to return regardless of the outcome.

I have tried not telling them about past interviews, and they’ve found out, and in turn, they have made me feel unwelcome because I think they feel hurt by my inquiring about new positions.

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.
