I am currently doing my CIPD Diploma in HR and also looking to start my career in HR.
My work experience is around working in schools in different administrative positions (PA, Exams, Admin, Attendance). I don't have HR experience besides minute-taking during HR meetings and a bit of recruitment.
I just wanted to get some insights or advice from HR professionals in regards to how best to address my lack of knowledge when applying for jobs. What should I say in the cover letter or interviews to turn into a positive thing?
After 1 month, I have had 1 interview only and unfortunately didn't get it due to lack of experience. I have applied for many that say they accept people working towards CIPD and never end up successful, so I am feeling very deflated...
Any insights, websites (PM Jobs is great, but so many with recruitment agencies that never respond), positive experiences would be much appreciated
