Is there some type of HR professional organization in your area? I worked for 5 years as an agency Recruiter/Sales Rep. I was amazed at how much HR stuff I was doing at the agency. This may souncd silly but look into interning one afternoon a week. We have an intern that works Monday afternoons with us.
She has another full time job but wants to get into HR. She worked it out with her current employer to go in early on Mondays and get off early. We love to teach others and help them with a career in HR. I worked for around 2 years with a recruitment agency before finally gettinga break in HR and currently heading HR, TQM & CSR initiatives for my company.
The process is in my new book, Illuminate: Harnessing the Positive Power of Negative Thinking (Wiley%Sons 8/09) and I'm always happy to answer questions on the application.
Good luck and hope you find your next opportunity to add value asap.Then step three is FIX it- which is to say, reduce the limitations and impediments and get to work on closing the gaps.We all care enough to help others do this, it's even more noble to do it for ourselves.Reply I have a similar problem, but the only thing the difference is I am looking for a job in HR in the UAE.i have studied Diploma in Management, so i have a background knowledge in HR.I would apply for jobs expected those two things to add up to three years of experience, with the year at a staffing firm, you actually have four years.HR Director down South Reply I just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who commented, especially Suzanne to my question. Also, I know networking is important so I'm going to try even harder with that, especially with my membership in TCHRA. Reply I too have been reading all of the blogs with great interest and believe, like Matt, that continued networking is key.People without work experience thinking of starting an MBA should take that into consideration before making a decision. Apply for those positions that require 5 years – MBA are generally considered equal to 2-3 years experience on their own. How do companies buy that you can hire someone with NO experience, but has an MBA and place them in high level positions because they have those three letters after their name?Reply First, look for opportunities to mix with HR people. Reply Don't under estimate your staffing agency experience.I’ve been applying to numerous positions but have not gotten any luck. How can I gain experience if no one is giving me the chance? Not just in writing to me (I used to say that showed superior intellect, but after some of the questions I’ve received, I’ve had to realize that that ain’t true in all situations), but in how you’ve written to me.I know that networking is important so that’s why I’ve joined SHRM and my local HR Chapter, but even so, that hasn’t really help. You started out by complimenting me and describing what I do here. Use that langauge Third, every job description every entry level job description says, “5 years of experience or similar.” Bah. Because they don’t want to write, “this job requires you to have half a clue.”) So, what are you doing wrong?
