Do you have a passion for making sure the workplace is functional, comfortable, and efficient?
Human resources and office administration professionals support the company’s goals with various HR initiatives, and are comfortable handling sensitive information. Their strong communication skills means they are able to communicate well with members from various departments in the organization. They have compassion for others and a willingness to listen to others’ problems, and their high emotional intelligence allows them to resolve conflict. They are able to present a positive company image to potential job candidates and anyone who visits.
Human resources managers plan, direct, and coordinate the administrative functions of an organization. They oversee the recruiting, interviewing, and hiring of new staff, consult with top executives on strategic planning, and serve as a link between an organization’s management and its employees.
Talent recruiters are tasked with identifying and pursuing candidates for potential job openings. They play a key role in filling important, hard-to-fill positions where competition for qualified candidates is strong.
Administrative assistants help with correspondence, keep records, make appointments, and carry out similar tasks. They may also assist with event planning, researching information for projects, and database entries.
