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

Don’t be afraid to try new things and step out of your comfort zone. In HR, you are constantly working on various kind of projects(sometimes not directly related to HR), so it is important to show your willingness to work on any kind of project you are given. Also, Identify your strengths and build upon them. Everyone has different things they are good at, and it is important to highlight those and bring value to your company by magnifying those strengths, instead of focusing on your weaknesses and what you need to change to be better.
