Default Accounting or HRM

Hi,

I'm thinking to change my career path. Hence hope to hear your advice before I decide.
I was studied CAT during school time and have been working in accounting work for more than 6 years. Recently, I have been thinking to change my career path to HRM as I have been involved in a lot of HRM related work in my current roles. Furthermore, I realised that my interest in not in accounting.

But I'm not too sure if this is wisable as I'm already 30 this year. Would it be too late for me?

Only if you believe you can be a better HR professional than thousands and thousands of people who also want to do HRM or are already in the industry. Meaning that, the lower the entry barrier, the more intense the competition. Just like a computer scientist considering whether to assemble computers and sell them in Sim Lim Square.

yeah, but the demand for HR professionals > supply.
I don't see thousands and thousands of singaporean grads going into HRM.
