In 1996 I completed a Management of Human Resources B.A. degree and then got sidetracked and for the next 15 worked a series of customer service jobs, primarily in the Hospitality industry. I am 50 now and my question is, to any HR professionals out there (or anyone who can offer some insight): is it too late for me to get into the HR field as a Specialist, starting out of course as an Assistant? Would any HR department be interested in hiring me and training me, etc.? I do not have any HR experience to offer anyone but I feel I have a lot of direct knowledge of HR issues from the employee perspective, and a great deal of life-experience to offer. Please be honest. Thanks much.
