Human resource management contributes in a big way to a company’s success. They are responsible for making decisions that can affect the company.

These decision are on the top of the list for importance to a company.

9. A friend hears you are taking this course and mentions an interest in an HRM career. Based on this chapter’s description, what advice would you give your friend?
I would tell my friend that this is a very important decision that can affect not only the business that she would be hiring for, but the people that she is hiring. This job is a high risk high reward type of job. I would let her know that there are multiple positions that full under the HRM career. It starts at a Human Resource assistant, which is an entry level job. This is still an important position, but they do not hold all the cards in their hand. The ladder climbs to a Benefits analyst position, which is an intermediate level and continues to climb to manager to training director. I would tell her that many HRM professionals have a college degree, so I would encourage her to get a degree first. This career choice must have people with skills that are balanced with attention to details of law and knowledge of the business. I would encourage her to follow her dreams.
If I had to pick an area of interest in the human resources department, I would choose to work in the HR administrative roles. The career title I would like to have would be Payroll Coordinator. This position is responsible for processing and managing the payroll process, maintaining reports, payroll processing, and other employee-related expenses and programs. I choose this job because I love numbers. My favorite thing to do is mental math and memorizing numbers. I have eleven years’ experience counting large amount of money for a mobile cuisine business. I could count the money quickly and efficiently. I could count different stacks of different values and remember each stack’s amount and add them in my head. For this reason, I choose to work as a Payroll Coordinator.
