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

You are a business professional FIRST AND FOREMOST (not an HR professional). Align your work to the business' strategy and justify your decisions with data. You will have a "seat at the table" and be the dynamic HR business partner every company NEEDS!
