Hi all!

Has anyone gone from VISTA Leader to a career in Human Resources Management/Development? If so, how helpful was your VISTA Leader experience? I'm looking to enter into HR and trying to make sure my skills as a VISTA Leader is transferable to HR.

Thanks!

Hello Mignon.  I actually have a M.A. in HR Management, so I'm utiilizing my took kit to assist with my VISTA service.  A lot of the tasks/responsibilities as a VISTA will serve you well in the HR field.  A few topics that will easily transfer are: networking, organizational development, time management, resiliency, coaching/mentoring, laws/policies/regulations, and community engagement.  Hope this helps!
