Has anyone successfully made the career move from an HR specialization to an HRBP role? If so, how? I have been working for 7 years in a very niche HR specialization and while I wear many hats on the HR team, I feel like this is hard to express to recruiters or even get an interview for an HRBP role. My niche area has really burnt me out, as it’s very political and I want to expand my horizons. I am already working on completing my GPHR certification. Any other tips?

We don't know what the long-term consequences of covid-19 are yet. Please wear your masks! Many viruses go on to be the cause of various cancers, whether or not you manifest symptoms when you initially catch the disease. 20 years from now, we could all have lung cancer or some sort of blood cancer. Even if you aren't concerned about getting sick now, we all should be concerned about what the long-term effects of it may be. Please be responsible. Take care of yourself and take care of others.
