I am working on a Master's degree in HRM, but don't have any real experience. I reside in Raleigh, NC. I'm womdering if anyone had a difficult time getting a job in the field when they first finished school?

I have an accounting background, but want to switch careers now. I'm curious to know how to get started in the field. Thanks

I would also like an answer to this question, as I am in the same situation, but have limited HR experience.

My degree is in Accounting with Masters in Bus Management. Now looking to switch careers.

My advice to both of you would be to try to contact your local temp agencies and try to get placed into a temp-to-hire position. Experience is crucial in Human Resources, and it becomes even more important with the job market tightening up as much as it has.
