If Human Resources Were an Animal...?

Human resources is in many ways the field that trumps all other fields. No one gets a job without you, and no one loses a job without you. In many ways, an HR job is invested with more power than a CEO.

When applying for a human resources position, you should always put forward your desire to help people as well as the company. Human resources jobs can be a lot like an elected position where you are there to appease the constituents and the interests of the lobbyists. One good tactic for interviewing for a HR position is to ask yourself, ''Why did I go into this field?'' Then take that answer and convey it to the interviewer during your interview. Of course, this is assuming that you got into human resources for reasons beyond just getting a paycheck.

People skills are the most important aspect of a human resources position. However, this might be the most difficult type of skill to portray in a resume. Don’t let this discourage you, though — an interview will give you the opportunity to show your winning personality.



Organization is another key aspect of the human resources worker. Your job entails keeping track of every employee and all of their information, as well as potential employees and what they might have to offer the company. This is definitely, then, one of the more important qualities to display to your potential employer.

Your appearance can speak volumes in this regard. Putting together the perfect job-getting outfit is more important than you might think. It doesn’t mean you have to go out and spend a lot of money, just that what you have on says something. When applying for human resources jobs, you want to be put together and professional, while keeping a sense of style and individuality. If twenty people go in to interview with the same black suit on, but you show up with up with a light brown suit and a unique tie, that will help you stand out. One good trick is to point out your tie and give a little anecdote about why you have it on. Say something like, ''I know the tie is a little funky, but my kids gave it to me for Father’s Day, and they wanted me to wear it for luck.'' Getting a bit personal with the people who you are trying to work for can be invaluable.

It is also always a good idea to have some legal knowledge about the workplace and conduct that occurs there. The best way to accrue this knowledge is through experience, but taking a class is also a great way to have a viable source on your resume to put you above the competition. There are always some unwritten laws that you have to deal with as an HR employee. Employee conduct and expectations vary from business to business. Some frown upon inter-office romances, and some even forbid them, but for others work is like a singles bar. When applying for human resources jobs, it’s important not to lay all your cards on the table as to your opinions on subjects like these. Try and feel out the vibe of the place and try to go with the flow.

The objective of human resources is to maximize the return on investment from the organization’s human capital and minimize financial risk. This is the most important objective that you need to keep in mind while applying for human resources jobs.
