The Rookie HR Show with Segun Akiode

Today’s episode of The Rookie HR Show is dedicated to answer a frequently asked question – How can I get a job in HR without HR experience? This is a question I get from people with little to no formal education in HR or those with little to no HR experience.

You need to understand that human resources is, first and foremost, a business function. If you think it’s for you because you’re a “people person,” you’re on the wrong track. Click To Tweet

In this episode, you will learn:

  • That you need to start by answering – why Human Resources? You need to understand that human resources is, first and foremost, a business function. If you think it’s for you because you’re a “people person,” you’re on the wrong track.
  • That you have to manage your expectations about getting an HR job and the nature of the HR job. Most entry-level HR jobs are administrative in nature.
  • That you would need to have a plan of action which entails: re-crafting your CV to highlight transferable skills, attend HR related training, and get HR certifications among other things

Permit me to say that - getting an human resources job is not the solution to all your 'internal career struggle'. Find your why first! Click To Tweet
