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

Don’t give up! HR, recruiting, and talent acquisition is not for the faint of heart. Always have a growth mindset and be open to learning, changing, and being better! And never forget the “human” in Human Resources. We are dealing with living, breathing human beings and and we are their advocates!

Reneging

Perhaps you’ve had this happen to you: a candidate spends many hours convincing you that they are dependable, reliable, and exactly what you are looking for, and then leaves you and your organization high and dry when you offer them the position. This is reneging, and we must understand why it happens in order to prevent it and respond appropriately.
