Now look there are two types of people in this world, those that organize things and the rest of us are just kind of do what they say but if you think you're good with people and you like organizing things maybe human resources could be a career for you. We're here at the Department of Mines to find out what it's all about. You hear the term human resources all the time but it's a pretty obscure and confusing job title. All i know is that it involves dealing with lots of people which is why I'm here at one of the biggest people machines in WA, the Department of Mines and Petroleum to find out exactly what a human resources officer does. Great to meet you Alyce. Well let's start with everything, I need to know if you're working in Human Resources what do you do? So pretty much we work with the employees right through from application to retirement and that could be anything from looking after their safety to training to providing wellness programs or diversity events. So you follow someone's career basically from the beginning right through the end. Yeah while they're in that specific organization. Sure and ok well let's start at the beginning how you came to be in the job. What was your particular path? Where did you study how are you here today? I studied the ECU I studied a bachelor of business and I did a major in human resource management and from that I engaged in lots of different work experience, internship placements I put my name on the templates here at this department and they asked me to come back and work on my initial project. Okay, talk me through a day a typical day of yours when you turn up what do you get up to? First thing I do is look at my emails to make sure there's no employees that are concerned about any issues. That's the first thing you need to get to you need to reply to them quickly. I also because I'm the wellness coordinator I do a lot of events and presentations so i might be one day I might be booking in a presentation I'm checking that staff have RSVP'd properly that kind of thing. We also organize occupational safety and health inductions for new staff so i might be sending out invites. Okay, it's time for you to give us the edge. Can you do that? Absolutely question number one, just quickly from school to what you do now what's the process? Definitely finish high school and an excellent way to increase your opportunities then enroll in either a human resource management course at there's a number of different institutions that offer it or you could do a degree in business and get a a major in human resources or even a psychology degree. Question 2 if I want to be really successful in human resources what characteristics do i need? Definitely a good people person, you need to love working with people, also excellent communication skills that's a big one you need to always be talking with people and also being able to say the same thing to everybody being consistent with your advice to give throughout the organization. And question number three, if you could have done one thing differently but still end up exactly where you are today what would you have done there? Good question i'm quite happy with the path I took but I will say definitely being a little bit more comfortable about asking questions and seeking advice. Well Alyce, thank you so much for talking me through it I now know what it means to work in human resources. Thank you very much it's been really fun. Well there you go that's just the tip of the iceberg of what it means to work in human resources. If you want to get involved you want more info you gotta get onto https://studentedge.org and don't forget if you really keen about it get out there network and meet people.

BIG MISTAKE IN GETTING AN HR Degree. Don't make the mistake my daughter made. She got a college degree in Human Resources.While in college she got an HR job with a major retailer, worked there for two years. Decided to try something other than retail. Landed a job with a manufacturing company.When she accepted the job at the manufacturing company she had no knowledge of her employment being short lived.They hired her to fill the position of a woman that quit.This woman quit because her division was being closed and she would be unemployed.My daughter was not aware of this closing. After six months she was forced to resign.She's been unemployed for six months.She has student loans and no job. She has sent almost 100 resumes to prospective employers. Had only a few interviews. Early on, at great expense we had her resume professionally re-written.It made no difference. Employers want on average 5 years experience. How do you get 5 years of experience if you can't get a job? This is not the fault of the employers it's our fault for not doing the proper research about what potentially can go wrong after graduating. If only she had pursued a degree that gave her the necessary experience while in college to obtain a job upon graduating without the on the job training. We really screwed up! Do your career research before getting into debt! Any suggestions!

Good to hear that sir! Thank you for replying. Wish me luck!

She was hired four weeks ago by a large health insurance co. She absolutely loves her new job! Unlike the manufacturing environment that she was fired from, this is her bailiwick. Patience is a virtue that we need to practice but it's hard when looking for a job. Godspeed!

Nice video content! Excuse me for chiming in, I would love your thoughts. Have you thought about - Schallingora Internet Commerce Scheme (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is a good one off product for getting extra money working at home without the hard work. Ive heard some great things about it and my friend at last got excellent results with it.

The only people attracted to HR are psychopaths who want to control other people. HR is on it's way out, they have screwed up the workplace long enough!

but I have a psychology masters degree, how do I get started in this field, as many companies want an incumbent with an MHRM degree😞?
08aoc (1 year ago)
+UnlimitedProduction1 thats because HR is a scientific field of business. ie HR people need to understand the science behind human behaviour and apply it to the betterment of the organisation.

alphaacad1 Hi, I was replying the guy talking nonsense. Sorry for any misunderstandings. I don't know if you have come across this, but this a great resource for people wanting a change of career focused on I/O Psychology. I would read all the replies and see if you can find anything that is similar to your situation. It is a great resource that answered a lot of lingering questions I had about the career. http://neoacademic.com/2015/06/17/grad-school-managing-a-career-change-to-io-psychology/

You sound a bit salty and your information is not accurate. I am majoring in Psychology and minoring in business. I am currently doing internships and research to get work experience and eventually go into Graduate school to get my Industrial Organizational Psychology's Masters degree. I don't know where you have been living, but the world is much bigger than "Major in this, you work in this" - it is call skills.

"There are two types of people in this world.  Those that organize things and those that do what THEY say"!!  Lol, this is so true.  That's the best way to put it.

Would an OLS degree with a minor in Communications be helpful in getting an HR position?
