"You don't choose HR, HR chooses you."
Human Resources (HR) Generalist:
You have a lot of influence but not a lot of authority. The hardest part is wanting people to succeed but not being able to save them from themselves. When it's good, it's so good. The ability to help staff and management is empowering. You feel like you make a difference every day, but you have to be strategic when you plan. You need to have lots of small wins before being able to get a big win. Knowing when to plan your actions and being able to wait for that optimal time will pay off in the long run.
