HR Encyclopedia Contributor

My name is Jason Checketts and I have been a Human Resources professional for 7+ years. When I started my HR career, I didn't really even know what HR was, but it didn't take long for me to realize this was my life's calling! I have an undergraduate degree in Communications, and then pursued a Master's Degree in HR Management. I use the skills acquired from my degrees daily, and am always learning new things.

What words of advice and encouragement would you give to someone just starting out in HR?

There are so many different aspects to HR that you can consider pursuing. I recommend researching the various areas you can pursue. My first job as an HR Generalist allowed me to tap into all of these areas and learn so much about HR as a whole. Because of that broad career overview, I can now create an entire HR strategy!
