If you're transitioning from teaching, leverage that experience to get a position in learning and development. You could be a trainer or a content creator easily.

I am also transitioning to HR, I found that the best way to get in is being a recruiting coordinator.

Anyone that can successfully manage 150+ middle schoolers and their families should have no trouble dealing with a group of professional adult employee. Anyone you interview with should understand that.

Hypothetical situation during 1st int:

1) A recruiter asks you for compensation preference
2) You don’t answer it and say that you need to get more info on the type of work
3) You ask him/her about the pay band
4) She/he gives you the payband for a lower position
5) You say that we “can make it work”

At the end of the process, would you still ask for a number higher than the high of the range he/she provided? If so, how would you pitch it?
