Here’s an update for my HR readers: I moved my SPHR recertification test to December 22nd. My November was brutal. I had the swine flu, an excessive amount of travel, and a tremendous amount of personal ennui.
Over the past month, I’ve met my share of certified professionals. A board certified doctor who diagnosed me with H1N1. A certified realtor who is trying to sell my house. A certified nail technician who gave me a pedicure. I’m still not sure if I need to be a certified HR professional, but if I’m going to do it, I don’t want to f–k it up.
As a side note, I want to start an association or industry trade group — just to charge money and certify people. Would you pay to be a certified blogger? Maybe I can create a designation for cat bloggers? Ideas? Anyone?
