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.

You can go for a short Diploma course in HRM which should be 6 months studying part time evenings or Saturday classes in a good college. Since you easily get bored from what you sound in your explanation above, go in the line of recruiting and that will keep you on your toes and the satisfaction you get from getting... More

The research and other... More
