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.

What words of advice and encouragement would you give to someone just starting out in HR?
1) You’re never going to know anything so don’t feel pressured to do so. Laws and regulations are constantly changing so it is okay to say to someone that you’ll look into an HR question further. 2)If you have another HR colleague or friend that you can trust, lean on them for support. Run situations by them to get their perspective. Sometimes they can see things that we don’t see on our own. Don’t be ashamed to rely on sources for help.
