Greetings All,

I am in need of your support and direction.

I find myself, after working 20 plus years in A/R field that I want to return to Human Resources. I have a total of 2 years in HR. Not counting my management experience. All total about 5 years. However, my HR experience in not recent.
I am having difficulty getting back in even as a Assistant or Coordinator.
Any suggestions??? Also, without too much expense, where can I go to be Certified in HR? I do have a BBA w/concentration in management. But the employers want more it seems.
Sure do appreciate advise from you experts! take care...

Oh my...it sounds like I wrote this! I too am looking to get back into HR with no luck. I had 5 yrs of HR about 15 yrs ago. I have looked into HR certificates. Some local community colleges have programs along with the universities, but the programs seem about a year or more long. I also looked into my alma mater and to take three classes it will cost me around $4,000. which I don't have right now and I'm not sure if that will even help me get my foot in the door... :( Look at PHR (Professional HR certificate) or SHRM.org, I think you have to be current in HR with these certificate programs...

Thanks for your sharing. I think I will have to work hard at persuading a potential employer with my finesse. There are some employers that would be willing to train a little more because they see a fabulous team player, it's all about personality! Then again, it is just tough world we live in right now.
Do not let yourselves be robbed of JOY!!!

I will check out the classes. Good luck to you!
