I've been temping all pandemic for a school district as an HR specialist, how can I get out of education & make this work in HR? My degree a decade back was Psychology and I've been in non-profits and upper academia since. DFW all around clerical looking for a FT with decent benefits and pay.

Question: Why wouldn’t you be able to stay in HR outside of education?

I've been passed around 3 of the HR offices, so I'm not at all specialized. I've been in HR customer service, benefit's and compensation, and currently in recruitment. Nothing I've been has been a key personnel, it's filing, data tracking, answering phones, background work to ease the load on key personnel. So when I say I have 1.5 years in HR, it doesn't translate to a "real HR" role. Non-profits and Academia seem to be difficult to translate out and into private sector.

Interested in your opinions. Last year I took a government job. Before I was working as an independent consultant and netting more - obviously without pension and benefits though. (Lost work due to pandemic.) With extra medical expenses this year (outside of government insurance) I realize I’m simply not making enough money to do what I want and need to to (medical + travel + investing). Everyone tells me to stay for security and WLB.

I'm so fed up with the casual sexism of my mom. Last night, she was worried about my sister whose husband doesn't have "the same earning potential" as my brothers 1, 2, and 3, all named individually, so "she will always be poor". When I pointed out that she compared my sister only to my brothers, I earn more than them, and both my sister and I are at top firms in our fields, she said, "...mm". Later she said how happy I am when I'm not working and I should quit to raise kids (no kids yet)
