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

DO it! This is a mid-life career change for me and I’m happier than I’ve been in years! It is SO worth the additional work you may have to put in initially.


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.
