Here is an article sharing about the HR job facts for those who want to engage in this job or who are already in and who want to understand it.


“Whatever you do, there are still a lot of people criticize you, hate you even they don’t know who you are”

Your decision is other’s lives

If you are having a high, stable position in HR field, your act will have a big impact to many people, their lives, families and dreams. That’s true.

Give an example, your company are looking for a new employee or promotion for someone, you will be “an obnoxious guy” who informs to others that their chance has ended. You also know about layoff list in advance, which has an effect on their mind, family and even the bills of your colleagues. It put you to the place you become composure, cold and unfriendly to keep secrets.

You are the one who usually bring the bad news.


You will say no to a manager requiring impossible exaction, an employee looking for an unreasonable salary.

In this situation, almost people will respect your viewpoint, however still having those who think you are an obstacle in their career way.

HR is the most hated department in the company

When finance department make a mistake, they can revise the balance sheet, when marketing make mistakes, they can change project, if sales department cannot complete their task, they focus on the next quarter, when analysis fail, they can try again, but if HRs are wrong, it will influence on many people and themselves in many years.


Finally, the weakness of employers also generate a bad reputation for HR. Manager usually say “HR department said..” or “HR will not” by that way they transfer all their responsibility to HR team for a fail agreement.

Even you are very enthusiasm and high appreciate in your job, people will not stop blaming you for what happen in their work.

Some useful advice from a professional HR

- The average time spent by recruiters looking at a resume: 5 to 7 seconds.

- While the average length of an interview is 40 minutes, 33% of 2000 surveyed bosses indicated they know within the first 90 seconds if they will hire that candidate.

- 93% of recruiters are likely to look at a candidate’s social media profile.

- The best time of day to ask your boss for a raise is first thing in the morning after they’ve had their coffee or any other morning ritual. You will need your boss’ undivided attention. Avoid times when they are hungry, about to leave the office, or have meetings scheduled. The same advice can be said for asking your boss about anything from holiday requests to discussions about future development within the firm.
