Quick Shot: 5 Things I'd Do Differently In My HR Career


100% totally inspired from Laurie Ruettimann's presentation to HR students at SHRM '10, Learn From My (HR) Mistakes, here are five things I would do differently in my HR career: 

Spend time as a recruiter sourcing, searching, and selling.

Be a small fish in a big pond for a few years to add big corporate HR to the toolkit. 

Really, I mean really, understand the financial side of a business.

Spend as much time outside of HR as I spent in it.

Make more waves. 

What about you? What would you do?
