Human Resources: Be resourceful when looking for HR jobs

By | December 2, 2012

Human resources, or more simply “HR”, is an industry within business that many people don’t really know all that much about. However, a career in the field can be both satisfying and financially rewarding. It also happens to be an in-demand job with openings across the country in a wide variety of business fields.

Searching for HR Jobs

A quick online search can yield thousands of potential landing points for someone qualified and looking for a job in human resources. ICS is a fantastic reference to continue the job search in this field, providing additional information about the job, information on potential salary, as well as a plethora of job listing.

Current Jobs: What’s available

When I begin looking for a job, the first thing I will look for is the most current job postings. The older the posting, the more likely it is that the position has already been filled. ICS, has a few very recent posts with jobs that have been posted within the last few weeks, however they have older postings as well.

Older Jobs: Valuable Information

I think it can be beneficial to look through some of the older posts to get more information. So long as the posting is not very old, it won’t hurt to send in a resume either. Information in older posts can give a better idea of an expected salary as well the availability of jobs to expect in the future. If older postings are prevalent, then you can expect that more will be posted in the future as well.

ICS does more than enough to fit the needs of a person looking for a job in this area. Even without the job postings, the website gives a great overview of the job. This includes statistics regarding to the potential of the job from relevant sources including the Bureau of Labor Statistics which called HR one of the fastest growing jobs on the market.

ICS: Informative Overview

The website allows serves both those currently looking to get a job in the field as well as those who are only thinking about the potential. If someone is thinking about getting into the field, they can come to ICS to gain a better understanding as to if they think the job is the right place for them.

Many people will want to get a more in-depth description of the job including the responsibilities and average day to day of an HR specialist. This information, as well as salary and necessary education information can all be attained from the website. ICS meets the needs of the human resources job seeker in these areas.

Having graduated from university with a degree in business administration, I have spent a considerable amount of time browsing the internet for hr jobs as well as other more general positions within the broader spectrum of the business field.

I wish I had found ICS earlier on in my search as it would be been a great resource in my hunt for the perfect job. If you are great with people and interested in business, a career in human resources might be the thing for you.
