Default Breaking into the HR industry (2 years of non relev. exp)

Hi everyone,

I would like to hear some thoughts and get some advice on my situation.

I graduated with a FCH specializing in materials engineering from a local university. I figured that I did not want to work as an engineer so i joined the healthcare industry in one of the government hospitals upon graduation as an administrator.

Currently, I have approximately 2 years of work experience (mainly learning and development for the staff) and my annual package including bonus is approximately 50+k.

My experience in learning and develop has piqued my interest in human resources. Hence, I wish to break into the HR industry as a generalist. However, I find it difficult to be shortlisted for an interview, much less secure an offer.

Please advise.

actually even for HR DEGREE fresh grad (no hr exp at all) ,the range is around 1.8 to 2.1k . The reason being HR jobs dont require degree so nowadays, alot employers put education qualifications as o levels/diploma/degree or at most put diploma PLUS few year experience. Thus, they can afford to pay u lesser due to the requirement not needing a degree.

You wont be able to find any HR jobs on job portal that says, Degree and no exp required. They dont really advertise fresh grad job. u just have to apply those that states "1 year exp" with diploma in Hr.

2.5 is actually around someone with with hr degree with around 2 year exp.
