Which of these options are better for career advancement and exit opportunities? 1) Working exclusively on proposal responses and development 2) Working exclusively on delivery projects. Let's assume we don't get to do both.

Proposal winning will get your far in consulting but the best skill in consulting would be the ability to be a named resource requested by a client for an engagement because it means you were able to sell something to an external client

I feel like there is an easier way to do this on line learning. Same grade teachers at the same school should be one big group. For example: One teacher has the discussion or lecture and does the presentation to all classrooms. One teacher mans the computer to answer questions that come in and handles any tech issues. Another teacher grades assignment and takes role and handles the admin part. Wouldn’t this be easier? Teachers could rotate or just stay in one role.

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.

I’m an Inclusion Teacher in an elementary school. My role is to support special education students in the general education classroom. I’m struggling how to provide the service due to social distancing protocols. In the past I could sit next to the students or bring them to a back table to work on skills. With the extra furniture in the room removed, this won’t be possible. I will also have students working remotely from home at the same time. Any suggestions or ideas?

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.
