If you’ve switched from HR generalist (manager, director, etc.) roles to specialize in something, can you share how you made the switch? Curious how to articulate to potential employers how I’m qualified to specialize rather than be a generalist, if generalist roles are what I have for 6+ years of experience. Thanks!

I’ve been in my role since June of 2020 right after graduating college. I truly cannot say enough good things about my manufacturer but lately, as in the last 6ish months, I’ve truly been questioning whether there is more for me here.

I want to move to Portland, Maine. Currently I’m an attorney at a big law firm in Boston. I’m originally from a more rural area though and would like to move to a smaller city with better quality of life. Unfortunately I have zero ties to Maine, other than many weekend trips and constantly looking a Zillow. Does anyone have any information about the Portland legal market? How hard of a sell will this be to employers?
