I just got an HR Assistant job. How many years can I put in with that position before I could advance?

How many years in this position do you think would be adequate to advance to a higher level position such as assistant director or maybe director of one HR department (benefits, training, etc.)?

In order to get a higher level HR position (especially one in management) you're going to need at least 2 years experience on the job. Without a degree you'd need more than that, so your degree is working for you... More
