HR professionals often say their line of work can offer a great deal of variety: “Every day is different,” “You never know quite what’s going to happen” or “Nothing is quite so unpredictable as human behaviour.”

This doesn’t quite cover it though — the variety within the profession is vast compared to the variety within a single position. With specializations ranging from governance, executive compensation, diversity, recruitment and workforce analytics to talent management, HR systems and business partners, the opportunities for growth and learning are significant.

And the opportunity to sample that breadth is a valuable one, especially in a world that asks professionals to specialize quickly and often — and earlier in their careers.
