  • Get experience early and often. Human resources is a competitive field, and it’s rare to hire someone into an entry level role who doesn't have at least a couple of HR internships under her belt.


  • Put yourself in a position where potential employers can find you. Make sure you brand yourself strategically. Think about your social media resume and what you can do to position yourself as an expert in your field.

  • Keep learning. The fact that you've completed your formal education is no excuse to stop learning. Human Resources is a constantly changing field, and it's important to keep up with new developments and best practices. Industry conferences like our Nonprofit HR Conference (happening in DC this October) can be a great way to stay sharp and hone your skills.



  • Don't shy away from contract and part-time work. In today’s work environment, many employers prefer to bring on new HR hires in part-time or contract positions as a way to "test" their new team members. These positions often lead to full-time roles if you're able to prove your skills and show that you can make a positive addition to the team.
