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

Be consistent with policies. Always look for opportunities to further your HR knowledge. Be very organized and set systems and check lists in place for on boarding procedures, when someone gets married what all needs to be changed in a specific amount of time, check lists for terminations of things that need to be competed.
