I'm looking to get into Human Resources and was just wondering what the best course was, entry requirements, fees etc. I've studied business studies at A-level which had HR units (UK qualification similar to a cert 4 I think) and I've got a BA honours degree in hospitality management also with HR units(from the UK also).
Ideally I'd like to study through distance education as I'm a SAHM with another one due in Sept.
So if anyone here is studying HR, I would love to hear some feedback on the specific course you are doing etc.
And also if anyone here is working in HR, I would love to hear more about your job and the specific day to day responsibilities you have, hours etc.
Thanks in advance!

I have finished my degree in Human Resources. It's technically a Bachelor of Business (human resources). I did it through Southern Cross University by distance education (I'm in Brisbane). What else would you like to know?

I work as an HR Generalist at a global financial services firm.
I have a business studies degree from the UK but nobody would give me an interview until after I had finished my one year post-grad in HR from Swinburne (online). Doesn't make sense to me as I don't think a one year TAFE course taught me anything better than my four years Masters degree but whatever! I got my foot in the door with a contract role and have worked my way upwards. Am just about to start mat leave though!!

I also wonder how I'm going to get my foot in the door as I've no experience working in a HR environment. I've only ever worked in the hospitality industry, with a few years at management level (had a tiny bit of HR responsibility), but I've not worked at all in 3 years. I'm a bit nervous actually about changing my career path, as I'm not a spring chicken anymore (33 this year) haha!

Best of luck with it! Look at all opportunities. My only advice would be that recruitment (as in agencies) is not HR - its sales
