I have all the necessary skills to become an HR such as decision-making skills, leadership skills, speaking skills, organizational skills, and interpersonal skills.

Work life balance is having a job that allows time for family and work. Stability is having a job that won’t change over a long period of time.

My values can satisfy my needs and I feel happy when I get an opportunity helping others. All three careers
