I hope you are all well.
2 years ago I completed a Masters Degree in HRM and was looking forward to starting a career in HR. I had worked in HR before although only as a HR shared service advisor providing a first line advisory service to staff and line managers.
Following the completion of my course, I got a job as HR assistant and have now been doing that for 18 months with no prospects of progression within the current organisation despite showing that I am capable.
I now feel like I am ready for a bigger challenge and want to get more involved in other tasks that challenge and develop my other skills i.e decision making and would like to be more involved in ER cases.
However, I have been applying for HR Officer andHR advisor positions elsewhere and so far have had numerous rejections and feel frustrated. I have gone onto another level 6 employment law course as part of my CPD but i can’t help but feel demoralised as no one seems to want to give me a chance to apply the acquired knowledge.
Can someone advise me on what I need to do to progress further or how best to position myself to get an opportunity to move onto theme next stage please? thank you.
