Learn something new
If you feel stuck and unsure of how to expand your HR experience, learning something new is a great way to push yourself and develop a new skill to progress your career. One great way to do this is through training programs and certifications. These give you a structured course with experts and resources that can show you new facets of HR and ways to advance yourself and your organization.

Feel inspired by your job by thinking about where it can take you. Where do you want to be in 1 year, 5 years, or even 10? Analyzing the big picture will help you realize what aspects you love and want to expand on in your current position. This may motivate you to create smaller goals that will push you towards success. For example, you might feel fulfilled by recruiting and matching the right employees to your company. This could lead you to create smaller goals like expanding your talent pool, or taking an initiative in the hiring process. The first step to reaching your goals is setting them, and nothing feels more motivating than accomplishing a goal.
