A pathway into an HR career is not always direct. Graduate positions aside, you will find a wide range of HR entry level positions, such as HR administrator and HR officer. In addition to these roles, your access may be via a PA or office manager position with some HR responsibilities such as workcover administration, rostering, administration for HR processes or WHS. Alternatively, resourcing or administration roles in recruitment firms may offer entry into recruitment or HR consulting roles. Of course temporary contracts in HR are another good way to build up your experience for your CV and often can convert into permanent roles.
