How would I get into the Human Resource field??
Right now I work a job I hate. I sit at a desk all day and do billing, boring. I used to work with people with mental illness. That was stressful so. I want to work with people doing human resources. I would love that. I have a little experience for supervisoring a mental health facility. I need more though all I see in the ads is you need ADP or Peoplesoft. How could I get that experience. I know I am good a scheduling and planning events.
