#Nextchat: What I Wish I Would Have Known

 

Whether you’ve been in the human resources profession for five years or 35 years (back when it was known as the "personnel department"), all HR professionals can tell you what they wish they would have known before they started their careers. 

They may talk about the evolution of the profession itself or about trends, laws and advances in technology that have appeared over the course of their careers. 

What did you wish you would have known about your resume or job hunt, or about networking? What advice can you share with others who are about to enter or transition into the human resources profession?

Would you still choose a career in HR–and in the same specialty? What would you have done differently?

Sure, times have changed, and the workplace and workforce will continue to evolve—but the best lessons are often timeless.

Please join @shrmnextchat at 3 p.m. ET on March 25 for #Nextchat with special guest Kevin W. Grossman (@KevinWGrossman) of TalentCulture and #Tchat
