Being service minded in society seems to have a negative connotation. In reality, it should be perceived as one of the best qualities to have. To be successful in any career, especially human resources, we need to be willing to go the extra mile, and be there to serve our, coworkers, customers, management team and anyone else that needs us. This is one of the main qualities that I look for when placing human resource professionals. If in your career, you have been in the service industry, I will take an extra look at your resume. Why? Because it shows that you have the ability to place someone else’s needs first.
