You have managed to sum up my career frustrations in a couple of sentences.
You are absolutely correct. My background has exposed me to nearly every HR discipline there is, but in a support role.
Your typical HR Generalist lacks the technical and financial skills that I have obtained along the way, but when given the opportunity, I have easily slipped into his/her role quite easily.
I have had to learn the details of the discipline in order to configure the applications accordingly. The opposite would not be required of the Generalist.
Thank you for your help thus far,
