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

Don’t give up! I tried for years to get my first role in HR as I was transitioning from an accounting / event planning focused role. I knew my heart was in HR and I never gave up the search for the right networking and right role. I’m now a People Ops Manager and while I might not have 10+ years of experience my team values my perspective and opinions. I could not be more satisfied with how things have played out and am so excited for future in people operations.
