Career Goals Essay
CAREER GOALS ESSAY
I have been in the Human Resource field with over eight years of work experience in a fast-moving consumer goods company. The experience has been as a HR supervisor with a global company and also an accountant with National Bank. Currently I am currently pursuing a Masters’ in Business Administration. These are all stepping stones leading towards achieving my long-term goal of eventually setting up my own Human Resource Consultancy Firm. Since I am driven by professionalism, I have short-term goals geared towards helping me achieve that. There are a number of certifications that I am eying to accomplish before the realization of my dream.
- PHR – Professional in Human Resource which is awarded by the Human Resource Certification Institute. I want to be particularly certified in this course since it proves one’s finesse in theoretical and practical knowledge in Human Resource Management.
- GPHR – Global Professional in Human Resources is a certification used to demonstrate one’s mastery in skills and knowledge in the HR field but for a global market place view. I find this one especially important since I plan to have clients of an international outfit.
- SHRM – Senior Human Resource Management which is a competency-based certification that targeted by both senior HR professionals and those new to the career. I plan to add it under my belt since it would asses both my knowledge and behavior.
My view on the importance of professionalism especially in my field of Human Resource Management is the core motivation to pursue these certifications. They will serve to increase my knowledge in the field. In any career, experience cannot be left out since it takes more than the classroom to develop. With that in mind I wish to soon get a higher HR position in with a global company.
