Jessica Mooi in Naperville, Illinois said: I recently graduated with a Bachelor of Business Admin and a concentration in Human Resource Management. I'd really like to find a job in human resources but I'm having a hard time finding anything. At this point I would be really happy with an internship to gain experience since everything I do find wants experience I don't have. Does anyone know of any internships or entry level jobs?
I'm experiencing the EXACT same problem. I graduated last year! I've learned that the HR field can be a difficult one to get your foot in the door. It seems that many employers want so many years of experience or either PHR certification. I'd recommend that you prepare and sit for the PHR certification exam (yeah I know...it's sad that the degree doesn't seem to be enough). Also, there is a company that is offering an HR Leadership and Development program, but it's located in Mass. and it's 2 years long...let me find the company site..Well..it's no longer there (was there on yesterday). They seemed to be a legitimate international company (www.emc.com). Perhaps it will become available again at some point...I was considering applying for it. Anyways, I'd recommend that you don't give up...keep applying and sit for the PHR exam. It's only given seasonally (twice per year). You can find more info on it at www.hrci.org. I hope this helps...Good Luck to you!
