    How to Break in to HR

    Tonight at 8PM EST on the HR Happy Hour show we will be talking about 'Breaking in to HR'.

    The show was originally intended to be broadcast live from my HR Technology Class at RIT, but we had some technical issues could not be overcome.

    But the intent and purpose of the show remain the same, to give some of my students, HR students at large, and truly any professionals looking to 'break' in to Human Resources some insights, tips, and recommendations on how they might get their start in HR.

    What organizations, networks, courses of study, certifications and strategies are the most beneficial for someone that aspires to an HR career?

    We will see what advice our guest,  listeners, and supporters, most of which are smart, experienced HR, Recruiting, or Talent pros can share with students, the ones that hopefully represent the future of the HR profession (and will take care of us when we are old and drooling on ourselves).

    Now don't be a wise guy and recommend something like 'choose another field' or 'go learn a real trade like plumbing or pipefitting'.  While that may be sound advice, it will make for a short (and boring) show.

    Joining Shauna and I on the show will be Robin Schooling, Rich DeMatteo, and Jennifer McClure (and hopefully you too).

    Maybe we can kick off some ideas here in the comments - What advice do you have for someone trying to 'Break in to HR'?

    I hope you can join us tonight at 8PM EST - Call in on 646-378-1086.

    I had an old friend ask me that very question a few weeks ago. She works for a Credit Union oversees and is moving back to Virginia in a few months. She has a degree in HR but that's all, no experience or certs. I told her to talk to her HR department and express a desire to transfer. I also warned her that she might be facing a cut in pay or a step back but if she's good she might can move up faster. I also pointed her to the SHRM site and the HRCI site. While she's been out of college too long to qualify for the student test she can study it and know what she needs to do in order to sit for the PHR.

    And naturally I pointed her to several blog to get her going on what's happening in the industry.
