I am a people person. I’ve known that my whole life, and I wanted to work in an environment that would allow that part of me to shine. So, I thought, “I’ll be in HR!”
The people business can be a beautiful thing. It can be extremely fulfilling and energizing, but let’s not kid ourselves: human resources isn’t always rainbows and butterflies. In fact, you might be one to argue that it has its fair share (or unequal share) of roadblocks and pitfalls. Even though I’m not old and wise with my nearly three years of industry experience, I’ve been there and experienced the pain points of being in HR.
