11 days of travel, exhausted & re-inspired!

Thumbnail image for 11 days of travel, exhausted & re-inspired!

I’ve been traveling for work going on 11 days now…it’s exhausting to be honest, but very rewarding. As I sit in the hotel lobby catching up on some emails, I can’t help but be reminded of all the wonderful conversations and people I have met over the last 11 days. Even though I am mentally exhausted and probably only still awake because of all the caffeine I’ve had today…I am very thankful for a lot of things that I wanted to share.

I worked for two years as a HR practitioner at a college and loved it; I loved helping candidates find the position that they were passionate about. Then my passion changed. I wanted to be more involved in the business, the strategy of how to really help HR departments be more efficient and find the best candidates. I remember how hard it was to run an HR department. How many people you have to answer to, with very little support sometimes, how many processes you have to instill to follow the law. I started to find ways to explore that new passion and how I could get involved.
