HRIS software

I'm a recent college grad wanting to work in Human Resources. I don't have any previous experience in HR and I was wondering how do I go about learning the different software. I want to be able to put something on my resume that will make myself stand out. I've tried to look up classes or certifications for HRIS software, but I haven't found anything. What should I do?

Great question, Eboni! There are lots & lots of different HR systems, so your best bet is to make sure your general knowledge of Microsoft products is good (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) and connect with a temp agency. Do a couple of temp assignments in HR to get some experience under your belt. Then you can use examples from this experience (making sure to talk about the systems you know) when you're talking to hiring managers.

It can take a little while to build up your experience so that you're ready for a full-time HR position, but if you stick with it, you'll get there!! Practical experience counts for a LOT, so be open to a variety of HR-related positions and do your best in each.

And don't forget: Ask your supervisors for a Praise on Jobcase - that way the good comments on your performance follow you!!

Good luck! Marijoy

Marijoy had some great ideas so follow through with the temp agencies. I would also suggest that you search the web for HR consultation companies in your area. This can help connect you with webinars and free training in all areas of HR. All employers are not looking for someone to come through the door knowing everything, they are looking for folks that are willing to learn everything! Enjoy the journey!

Hello Ebonite

I would suggest you find a internship program to gain experience and join SHRM for human resource majors. Also go on job websites and look at skills along with qualification requirements to see what companies are using. There are so many programs in HR just focus on the companies you are interested in and those who are willing to train you.
