Hi colleagues!

I'm an experienced HRBP who's looking for some career advancement advice. I'm currently studying for my SPHR and looking to take the leap to HR Director roles. While I'm a strong HRBP, I've yet to manage a team. And while I train managers on people leadership skills, I myself, haven't had a chance to flex those muscles. Those in HR leadership, should I apply for HR Director roles even though I haven't managed a team?

Hello. I am new and I wanted to get some advice.

Heads up: I don’t have dm open yet.

I don’t really know what to do as a career or anything anymore. I’ve been trying to find part time work for the time being. I feel like I have 0 skills when I try to look for work. I currently do freelance art. I enjoy it, but I don’t make enough yet. I previously did IT work— but became burnt out and have been out of the field for ~3 years. I am trying to learn programming, but for myself—not job ready.
