You are going through some very normal concerns. With good planning and good networking, you can make some real meaningful progress.

Please let me where you are going to school, what your major might be, why you chose it, and who might you know who is doing what you think that you want to do. Also, what is it you want to do in your career and why?

I am enclosing a link to my career advice blog, which was put together by the people at Career Village. Please review it, as it is a good way to become familiar with what I have learned over the years and through my teaching and coaching many people have had much success.

I would like to work with you as a mentor.

WOW!!! What can I say about my field of Human Resources (HR)?! A whole lot! When I think about it, is really warms my heart, because I am so passionate about this field and have been doing it for about nine (9) years now. There are many areas you can get into and all of them involve helping others. Some of the areas within HR are as follows: Talent Acquisition/Recruiting, Employee Relations, Benefits & Comp Admininstration, Training & Development. First, if you are interested in Talent Acquisition/Recruiting, you are helping others obtain careers. Secondly, if you are interested in Employee Relations, you are helping others while on the job w/ job related issues. Thirdly, if you are interested in Benefits & Comp Administration, you are helping to manage others benefits and comp within the company. Lastly, if you are interested in Training & Development, you are helping others to gain skill and knowledge to help them achieve success on their jobs. So, see...this is a great field to go into, which involves helping others.

HR is all about helping people...and the business. If you get involved in recruitment; you help people gain employment. If you get into staff development, you help people achieve career goals. By making compensation, benefits, wellness, and other HR decisions; you help people in these areas. Coaching/mediation - these are all areas in which HR professionals help people.
