About this Episode
What's the best way to break into the HR world? How can all of us make an impact on our respective industries? What is the value of taking a stand for what you believe in?
In Part 2 of a 2-part series, Brien shares his professional journey, the impact he's been able to have on the HR industry in Canada (spoiler alert: It's a major impact!). We also talk about the importance of non-traditional experience, and how important it is for young people to be able to articulate all of their experience.
