I have been recruiting in HR for the last 15 years and a common question that comes up is “How do I find my first HR role?” Whether it is your first full-time role, or you are looking to cross-train from another discipline, it can be a difficult process.
It’s a competitive industry to get into and so the first thing you want to ask yourself is ‘How serious am I about a role in HR?”. If you are not that bothered but think it looks like it might be fun, then in all seriousness you may be better off investing your time finding a role more suitable for you.
The contents of this guide will highlight some of the harder aspects of HR and so you really want to give this careful consideration. If you are still keen, then awesome! You now want to look at how you can make yourself stand out from your competition and demonstrate why you would make a great HR professional!
It is no different from any other competitive sector, in that you want to ensure that you are doing more than any of your competitors to make things happen for you.
