You need to be a certain type of person to work in human resources and it’s essential to have the right skills. If you really want to stand out, consider studying for a qualification from the CIPD.
Many human resources professionals work across the board while others specialise in certain areas.
There are several human resources graduate training schemes, which tend to form part of a large intake of graduates into various areas of a large organisation. Many positions are filled by word of mouth, so networking is key: if you’re a CIPD member, go to branch meetings and let people know you’re looking for work.
