HR practitioners filled the Society for Human Resource Management's (SHRM's) Facebook and LinkedIn pages with more than 400 comments on the Feb. 1 article on how to enter the profession. Here are some of their stories:
“During the interview, the recruiter said ‘You’d be good at this.’” His assignment through the staffing agency led to a full-time job as an HR generalist. Today he is HR manager at Virginia-based Team Fishel, a utility engineering firm.
After Matthew Swanson earned his degree in business administration with a concentration in human resource management in 2011, a visit to a campus career fair snagged him a summer internship at a life insurance company. That led to a temporary job there as an HR associate. Within the year he was offered a full-time position as an HR associate. Today he is an HR generalist at K2, a business application software company in the Greater Seattle, Wash., area. “A few tips: Get involved with your local SHRM chapter and look into local networking groups,” he advised on Facebook.
