Human resources branches out into many areas and you may find yourself being somewhat of a generalist. You'll be recruiting talent, developing their careers, administering benefits, training, and processing paychecks. The people you hire count on you to stay on top of the constantly changing labor laws, at the state level and federal level. To do this — get the people on board and take care of them on the job — the education never ends. Have fun while learning through conferences, seminars, networking, and even teaching others what you already know.
