Are you trying to get into recruiting, or do you want to be a HR generalist? A lot of larger companies have separate recruiting - if you want to be in a generalist at any of these places, you might not need recruiting experience!

Full disclosure - I’m not a generalist or a recruiter! But I think being a specialist I’ve had exposed to both. So I’d say you can find a generalist job without the recruiting experience. If it’s not specifically what you’re interested in, don’t seek it out. You’ll come by it naturally in your generalist path. Just maybe target companies that have the two roles separate (or, if you do want the experience, go for a smaller firm that has a few people who do it all).

At what age were your kids able to sleep alone in an unfamiliar place (e.g., room in vacation home)? Last time we traveled with our two and three year olds we found my husband needed to share the room with them and then they were happy and slept… but it meant he had to go to bed at like 8/830 pm which kind of sucks. They are now 4 and 2.5… should they be able to go to sleep in the room together without him there? Are they old enough to understand and cooperate?
