SHRM-CP is right for you!

And Here’s Why:

You’re an HR Rookie Trailblazer 

You’re an HR Rookie Trailblazer 

You don’t need to wait for anyone else. You’re your own kick-starter. And you know, the time is now.

You’re motivated and ready to start taking the steps needed to move your career forward. You realize that you’re just starting out your HR career or transitioning into HR so you don’t have the experience, yet.

SHRM-CP is exactly what you need to get your foot in the proverbial door, and skyrocket your HR career.

SHRM-CP does not require any prior experience or education to take the exam. According to SHRM, their eligibility criteria are: “Candidates for the SHRM-CP certification are not required to hold an HR title and do not need a degree or previous HR experience to apply; however, a basic working knowledge of HR practices and principles or a degree from an Academically Aligned program is recommended.

SHRM-CP is perfect for students who have not yet met the education and/or experience requirements for PHR. That means, you can prove your expertise by taking and passing the SHRM-CP exam, instead of trying to meet any pre-reqs.

You’re also ready to learn, to create your strong foundational knowledge, where you can build your HR career upon! You want that strong HR knowledge and expertise.

You know that without the expertise, and deep HR knowledge, education, and experience, you can’t progress further in your career.

That means – the next step for you is getting the SHRM-CP! This is just what you need!

3 Reasons Getting the SHRM-CP Is Your Next Best Step

  • Job Opportunities.

    According to softwareadvice.com, “42% of companies noted that an HR certification was either preferred or required.”

  • More Money. $$!

    According to a recent SHRM article, “Research shows that HR professionals who earn the SHRM Certification report higher salaries — 14 percent to 15 percent higher than their peers without a certification.”

  • Promotions! Career Development!

    According to Payscale’s study, “HR certifications matter most in the earliest phase of an HR pro’s career. Getting a certification matters a lot at the HR assistant level of certified professionals. In this entry-level role, 82 percent report they have been promoted in the last five years, versus just 68 percent of those who aren’t certified.”

  • Now that you know HR certifications pay off AND which certification is right for you, how will you learn that foundational HR knowledge and pass the exam?


    Many students struggle without any kind of structure.

    With the SHRM-CP published pass rates from the last few years being as low as 64%, you know that a little help could be useful.

    Who is this Ashley anyways?

    My Origin Story:

    It was the late 90’s and I was loving life as a tech recruiter! And then, the Dot com bubble burst! With all of my requisitions frozen, I knew that I needed to make a change to ensure my career stability! I didn't have a safety net. We didn’t have much growing up, and there was no family home to run to. So I took 2 steps that changed my life FOREVER!

    1. I reached out to our new HR Manager. We were just acquired by Intel! I told her that I wanted to move into HR, and asked for her support. While she couldn’t promise me a role in HR, she provided me all of the help and support she could. She created an HR Development Plan with me, allowed me to sit in on the HR meetings that were possible, gave me HR projects that helped me to develop my HR skills AND

    2. I enrolled in an HR certification prep course, took the exam, passed, and became HR certified!

    If we haven’t met, I’m Ashley Huynh. My early experience in HR shaped my HR career development. I believe HR certification is the pathway to HR career success. And I realize, I couldn’t have done it alone. If Suzanne, the HR Manager at Intel, hadn’t provided me that mentorship and support, I wouldn’t be where I am today! And that is why I am so passionate about supporting other HR professionals.
