Good day everyone,
I'm a recent grad who landed in Canada with a small dream of becoming a human resource professional and work in corporate sector.

I'm trying to land on a job from last 10 months, after applying to 100s of jobs, been on so many interviews I am still not getting anywhere.
I've started to loose all hopes!
It is my humble request to all experienced people, If anyone could guide me in right direction that would be highly appreciated.
Thank you.

Hi! Have you reached out to a recruiter? You should do so if you haven't yet. I'd also suggest you tailor your resume based on the role you are applying for.

Hello there. May I know what you majored in during your undergrad? I am only asking because if you want to get promoted in this line of work, you may at least need a bachelor's in human resource or the closest would be is an MBA.

Hey guys,

Quick question:

Please suggest from the POV of a digital agency recruiter:

I am a performance-focussed digital marketer with 8 yrs of experience. I have run my agency and worked in large agencies like Dentsu Aegis, in lndia.

I got to work with 100+ businesses in different industries across multiple countries, in my tenure till now.

I am now in Canada and on Student Visa till April, after which I'll be on work permit.

Should I begin applying for jobs now or wait out?

Thank you!

Anyone else getting ghosted by HR after being basically at the finish line? I’ve interviewed with two different companies and every interview going great.

Seems poor practice and makes me never want to work with them in the future.

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)

I am looking to make a career change to HR. I currently make 75K as a sales and development coach. I had a recent offer for a state government position in a talent acquisition role but I’d be taking a $25K pay cut. I am extremely over qualified for the position but it could possibly be a stepping stone and gives me the time to acquire SHRM certifications and possibly start taking classes to get my MBA. My question is those currently in an HR role, would this move make sense to you?
