"Process Management."
Human Resources (HR) Manager:
Pros: HR administration is boring. The fun really starts when you get to be analytic and strategic: influencing policy, pulling useful knowledge out of raw data, working with all departments, working with supervisors to maximize the potential of their direct reports.
Cons: It is easy to become the office help desk if you don't set firm boundaries and define your role.

"Keep Your Skills Sharp!"
Human Resources (HR) Manager:
Never give up learning. Federal and state laws change all the time and it's your responsibility to stay up to date. With so many public seminars offered by professional associations, law firms and other HR vendors, as well as a multitude of free on-line webinars, there is not excuse to fall behind the knowledge curve.

"Build An Expertise From General To Specific When Starting."
Human Resources (HR) Manager:
First, know that as an human resource professional you will be a life-long learner. Get a good general knowledge of the main functions of human resources e.g. Compensation and benefits, recruiting and staffing, training and development, compliance and employee relations. Be a systems thinker by identifying how each of the functions work together as a system. Secondly, identify one function that you are particularly passionate about and explore, learn and practice your additional skills. Above all, continue to fall in love with your work.
