Would You Like Fries With That?
Now that you have graduated from college and have your degree in human resource management all you need is a job. Easy, right? You have probably already listed your qualifications and resume at LinkedIn and Monster. Now all you have to do is sit back and wait for that job to come rolling in. In the meantime, you’ll enjoy the free time while you wait for an entry level position for one of the many human resource management jobs.
Maybe tomorrow you’ll check the newspaper to see if there are any human resource management jobs. As time goes by and you find yourself still unemployed and your student loan bills piling deeper on your desk, you decide maybe you better find some other ways to locate a job because you really need to get on the payroll somewhere soon.
You begin with a search of Craigslist in the closest city. You’re sure you will see something. Maybe even internships. Nothing turns up. So, you think perhaps you should expand your search to other states. You could always move if the salary offered was decent.
You jot down some information you find about jobs in Alaska as you find yourself shivering at the thought. So you decide to check Hawaii instead. Maybe they have some government jobs there in human resources.
One of your classmates for college calls and you shut down your laptop to go out for a bite to eat. You stop at McDonald’s and see they have a help wanted sign posted. You and your friend joke about working there and telling customers you have your certification as a human resources director and you ask if they would like fries with that. Then you see a vision of those stacked up bills at home and decide to ask about the job. The first thing you ask is what does it pay per hr. You decide that twenty five cents more than minimum wage is better than nothing. You put in your application and hope you get the job.
The next day you get called in for an interview and the manager likes you. Even though you are over qualified he feels your degree in human resources would be an asset. He hires you on the spot, but takes the time to tell you about SHRM (Society for Human Resources Management) that is a goldmine of job listings in your field of expertise. Things are finally looking up. You have a job that will hold you over and the key to finding the job in your preferred profession.

Experience Counts - The Business Case For Hiring Mature Workers - (Part 1)
By Lisa Jordan
It is estimated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics that by 2014 approximately 78 million baby boomers will leave the workforce. At the same time, just over 75 million workers will follow to replace them. However, numerous reports tell us that on the whole, baby boomers are planning later retirements, and many are seeking "encore" careers - allowing them to keep working past retirement age. Some are doing so because "working hard" has helped define this generation, others for economic reasons. Whatever the motivation, they want to work, and based on official projections, employers are going to need them.
