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

Be strategic about your HR career from the beginning. Find what you aspire to achieve and back engineer a roadmap. Stay curious and humble, and keep developing yourself--both hard and soft skills. Work on your weaknesses, but get clear on your strengths and find roles/opps that let you thrive as your authentic self.
