Is anyone here in HR?

I've been thinking about going for that field mainly because I am getting sick and tired of my accounting field.

I know hr is full of crazy landwhales, but I feel like it is a lot easier than accounting. I've seen some entry lvl HR assistant job opening up in my area. I don't need a degree or really any experience, so I might also look into that.

shouldn't accounting get easier as you get more experience doing it?

you'll have better path at more money in accounting than HR

go for a CPA
>>
>>1693887

You do need a degree and experience if you expect to land a real HR position. The assistant role you mentioned is probably more clerical than HR.

HR has a lower ceiling than most corporate tracks. Expect to be paid less than 60K a year for most of your career unless you work in a major city. The work seems easy as fuck tho and most people I know in HR seem to love their jobs.

Definitely avoid getting swallowed up by a staffing firm peddling recruiting jobs disguised as HR roles though. Staffing firms are growing like weeds and seem to recruit only people looking for HR and marketing careers. You WILL hate your life as a 3rd party corporate recruiter.

I'm just not really that interested in it anymore. It was fun at first, but now I hate it. I don't think I can do this for the rest of my life. I know I'll make more money with accounting, but is it really worth it if I'm just going to be a sad cunt?
>>
>>1693918
How can I tell the difference between a legit HR job and recruiting job?
>>
>>1693926

Real HR jobs are looking for people that have experience dealing with unions/CBAs, labor law, EEOC/DOL/FMLA compliance, proper documentation, conflict resolution, performance management, compensation, etc.

As a guy I would not recommend it. It's very female dominated. And when females dominate something, they ruin it. Every single time.

But beyond that its a paper pushing dead end where you are the company police officer.

Some jobs are good though. Plenty of opportunity and money can be good.
>>
>>1693942
Yeah I understand its very female dominated field. I'm alright with female and from what /b/ told me since I'm a POC they will probably like me more lmao.

But seriously really I just want to see if its worth it. I'm still very behind in my accounting degree, so I guess I could still switch. I want to finish my degree and leave this hellish restaurant job.

Company name. It's that simple. If you do your research you'll know what companies actually do work and what companies just whore people out to other companies.

Google "Robert Half" and avoid it and all companies like it like the plague. I have second-hand horror stories.

>I have second-hand horror stories.

Mind telling them?

>>1693887

Do you actually work in accounting, or are you a student/intern? Did you finish your degree?

t. accounting dropout

Accounting exists to give you a proper foundation in the sense of an applied science in having some rationale and standard, pursuing it full time would only make sense at PWC, EY, Deloitte or KPMG; unless you maneuver that skill within another financial field inhouse, but it's a well known fact that accountants are constantly busy all year round. I'm an accountant. I've had a stint in HR and it's chill asf, I'd highly recommend it. In fact, HR needed my logical thought so to speak to counter-balance the female component, so I'd thoroughly recommend it although it really depends becaues it was with company with over 50k employees.

>>1693934

This, although you're not a lawyer in essence and everyone has an inhouse speciality so you wouldn't be required to have it, what HR lacks usually is framework and accountants are well suited to apply processes in often deviant manifestations in dealings with people. You also get an overwatch position over the company which is awesome. That was my last job before I retired before 30, I had a 20% increase in my first year and would've continued if not for an income life changing situation that occurred.

Go into banking or consulting.

HR is literally the worst aspect of business

Can confirm, you'll barely make it through the front door, let alone taken seriously in the event you reapply in another firm back in the industry.

I'm still a student. I've taken a few classes and I'm really starting to hate it.

CPA, CFA, CFP, CAIA, PMI-RMP, FRM...

Large firms use RH and its kind to fill 4-8 month contract gigs all the time. Usually for single projects with the "chance" of wowing the firm enough to get hired there full time. RH gets paid to put asses in seats, and will do anything to push their candidate through their client's recruiting process, even if it means embellishing or straight-up lying about their experience and credentiala

HR is hell. If you're not happy with accounting, HR will be like a real hell.

Why don't you try switching to some more finance oriented role? Accounting background is a plus.

Or just learn how to code and go for programming.
