HR Advisor Jobs description

For those who are looking for a strong position in an office environment without being in a higher management position, taking an HR advisor job may be the career choice for you. The HR advisor job market is brimming with opportunities for the person seeking a career that spans a wide array of work. An HR advisor job has so many varied duties that it rarely becomes monotonous, and the prospects of new challenging tasks are endless.

The primary tasks in an HR advisor job involve maintaining communications and projects within the human resources department. People in HR advisor jobs are often placed as integral team members on projects within the department as they are usually utilized to coordinate projects across multiple departments. Additionally, an HR advisor job requires the ability to evaluate employees, participation in annual reviews of employees and other HR evaluation in terms of company progress.

The duties that an HR advisor job has to offer are many. People in HR advisor jobs carry out the recruiting functions of a company and assist the management in developing programs to help new employees understand company culture. A person in an HR advisor job may also be involved in the development of company policies, procedure guides, and in defining the company's ''best practices'' in day-to-day operations.

Additionally, an HR advisor job can include the development and administration of performance programs within a company at all levels. This type of program is important because it outlines what a company expects from its employees and can help the company identify organizational strengths and weaknesses. The program development can include the definition of productivity goals on a department-by-department or per-employee level, and can also include the development of reward and incentive programs.

The amount of paperwork handled in an HR advisor job may be more than one would expect from what many consider primarily as consultation work. The amount of preparation and documentation that is required for a company initiative or for a program-in-development can leave even the best workers feeling slightly overwhelmed. However, much of the paperwork over time is regularly recycled and can be turned into templates for future use.

The overall work load for an HR advisor job is about what one should expect for a lower management position. For someone looking to enter this field and take up the challenges of an HR advisory job, the requirements can be a bit daunting. Educationally, the requirement is simply an undergraduate degree with an emphasis in human resources. Additionally, experience of at least two to four years in a human resource department is required, but many employers want the experience to be from a similarly sized firm or from an international firm to ensure the experience is somewhat meaningful.

A person in an HR advisor job should also have some attributes that can be highlighted on a resume easily. Companies want to see applicants able to work with a team in a variety of settings, and on projects that involve defining policies or providing consultation and advising within the department. Excellent computing skills and familiarity with office programs and some database management programs are certainly positives, as is the ability to write and speak well. All of these can be supported by past projects or in a one-on-one interview. Above all, most companies looking for employees in this field are seeking someone who has a great ability to analyze and make critical decisions in the HR field and have the knowledge and reasoning ability to support their decisions.
