I have been working as an HR Administrator and have 4 years experience in HR. I also hold an MSc in HRM and therefore was able to get my CIPD accreditation. I'm looking to take my career to the next stage but from my job search, there doesn't seem to be many posts that bridge the gap between Administrator to Advisor. I have been to some Advisor interviews for the experience and practice and although I receive good feedback, it is my lack of formal Advisory experience that leaves me unsuccessful. Opportunity for such experience is also not a possibility in my current role. I work full time and have a very young family which makes volunteering my services outwith my job difficult.
My question is, for anyone who has experience of interviewing for HR Advisors, is there anything I can say or do within either my application or interview which would make you take a chance with an inexperienced individual over someone with experience? Or can you recommend anything that would make me a more attractive candidate to an organisation?
