Human Resource Management (HRM) is not for everyone. There are many tasks to be done and new innovations being implemented daily. With new day technology, formats and processes have drastically changed from what used to be a simple hiring process, to a strategically set process created and customized to fit people with the company.
Are you a people person? Do you have good communication skills? Do you have the drive it takes to implement policies and procedures and ensure a quality work environment? It is not about just hanging a sign outside and waiting for a new employee to walk through the door. Now you must be creative in sourcing candidates. You must know the position details and what qualifications to look for. You must know the screening and/or background process. Most companies hold job fairs or even virtual job fairs. Jobs are now posted on the internet on multiple sites which can include social media networks and job boards.
This is not all, what about employee benefits? HRM handles sourcing, marketing, recruiting, interviews, orientations, payroll, training, and benefits. These are all things that can be included in an HR department but may not all be handled by the same person. Does this sound like something you want to do? Do not let it discourage you, Human Resource Management is a world of its own.
