How LinkedIn Has Become My Personal ERP

Ten years ago SHRM had the notion to create subgroups based on HR specialty (a concept they've abandoned), at the time I'd recently moved from an HR Generalist role into one focused solely on recruitment - it was the job that changed my perspective on what I wanted to do, where I wanted to do it, and how I wanted to about mapping out my career.
