I coordinate, schedule and put together corparate training to enhance associate development.
My day is always different and not super fun, but I enjoy it, being the process person that I am. Sometimes I am meeting and greeting facilitators for training courses. Some days I am trying to come up with the proper curriculum to help an associate's development. Many days I am doing tactical work scheduling and coordinating classes and programs for the Finance organization. I have started to work on a new program which is always fun and challenging work.
My job has afforded me opportunities to develop beyond a four year degree and I have become BPM certified. With all of the tactical, scheduling and programming needs, process is a big deal. I need to be able to replicate programs and be efficient in my day to day work so documenting what I do and how I do it has shown me where my processes can be improved. Networking and working with people are huge in my role, so having great people skills and influencing skills are also important.
Here's the first step for college students
A degree in the HR- Corporate Training/Education would be more beneficial, but most of my experience has come from all of the various life experiences and roles I have played over the years. I would encourage internships and HR rotation programs.
