America Back to Work Ep 45: Ricklyn Woods

How to Manage Your Career in HR

It takes a lot of courage to work in HR—and even more to leave. After all, so much of your job is helping other people manage their careers, it’s hard to find time in the day to manage your own. 

Ricklyn Woods knows this better than anyone. As the owner of her own HR consulting business and the creator of the podcast “So You Want to Work in HR?” she speaks with HR pros every day to get the truth behind the profession. 

The podcast host joins our podcast to share some of that intel—and offer insight into how HR professionals can manage their own careers (while juggling everyone else’s).
