About

HR is such a growing profession, and a lot of Gen-Y-ers are going into it for a career. But not many are writing about it, and there seems to be a real silence on the reality of being a Gen-Y HR practitioner. Mostly, I get the impression that a lot of Gen-Y HR practitioners are faced with a 'whippersnapper' mentality where they are seen as young, inexperienced and overconfident. Probably true, but a really difficult impression to disprove also!

So - hello! My name is Sarah, and I'm a HR professional. I have a Bachelors of HR Management, and have worked as a HR Manager for a couple of years. I'm an Aussie, and had the pleasure of working in Singapore from 2010-2013. Now I'm incredibly fortunate and get to work in my hometown of Adelaide, Australia.

This blog came about after I received a few questions that I thought people would be interested in hearing the answers to.

It's wonderful to have you here, and please make yourself right at home...

Cheers,
Sarah
