Human Resources (HR) Director in Dallas:
"There is Never a Dull Moment."
Never say, "That isn't my job." You learn so much from speaking day-to-day with employees and managers, more than anything you will learn sitting in your office all day. Trust, but verify. You usually get half of the story so always speak with everyone before making a decision. Take notes often. Calls or conversations you have now may not seem important, but may mean everything 6 months from now. Write down the date and time of calls. You will never be bored! Every day is different and interesting. It is very important to get your PHR and/or your SHRM-CP. The tests put you in actual situations that you will incur every day.

"The real world is much different than described in textbooks."

Human Resources (HR) Director in Northern:
"Be years younger."
Learn your craft and establish yourself as a fair problemsolver and the "go to" person for advice.
