Which HR Certification Should I Get? HRCI or SHRM?

Officially Announcing My Candidacy for the 2020 Presidential Election #ACatInEveryPot

Apparently, we will now campaign for four years to become the President of the United States for four years. Makes sense. I like the Canadian system of campaigning way better than what we have here! 90 days or less and we’re done! Doesn’t that sound like a smart law? Until then, I’ll have to live […]
