How to Get a Job in HR Success

Over 75 HR professionals and job seekers attended the "How to Get a Job in HR" event on April 25th.
This is the second event of its type hosted by Andrew Metcalf, HRMA's Young Professionals Co-Chair. This event focused on helping the St. Louis community learn how to get a job in Human Resources by exposing them to tips and secrets led by four local HR professionals in a panel discussion format. Panelists, Brittany Harris (World Wide Technology), Nicki McCallister (Berkshire Hathaway), John Miller (Turnkey Technologies) and Staci Wood (KPMG) led an engaging and informative discussion highlighting their experiences entering the HR profession, along with their secrets for success in landing a job in HR. After the panel discussion, attendees had the opportunity to spend time visiting stations to speak one-on-one with experts in the areas of resume building, becoming HR certified, networking and interviewing. Per usual with HRMA events, there was food, laughs and an overall sense of camaraderie shared by people passionate about advancing the knowledge base of human resources.
