I'm an HR PM and I feel stuck. I'm LEAN certified I have 9 years of experience in large tech companies and small firms where I've been an HR one-woman show... I apply for positions I'd be PERFECT for, I apply for positions that I am a bit under qualified for, I apply for positions that I am a bit overqualified for and nothing... I've been targeting the BIG 4 Consulting firms; in particular DELOITTE and KPMG without ANY headway it's really discouraging. I sometimes find the recruiters on LinkedIn and try to backdoor my way in but I never hear back. My current role is great but doesn't challenge me and I know I have so much to offer if I were given the opportunity... maybe I'm just venting, maybe everything will "happen when it's supposed to" and the universe has a plan. I find that I'm giving myself lots of pep talks lately; job hunting can seriously weigh on the psyche.
That's my rant. Thank you whomever reads this.
