I joined Accenture recently in Level 8 and have been recently rolled off from a project to bench. The issue here is I joined as a Scrum master and could not clear 2 client interviews to get into a project. This is making me anxious regarding my job security. Any inputs are welcome.

I'm currently on the Bench, and may have just found a project which I'd like to join. Would it be okay to email a senior manager directly and ask for a quick conversation, or would it be better to wait for a formal requisition on the internal jobs position site?

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.
