What Qualifications Do Remote HR Professionals Need?
To work as a remote HR specialist, most companies prefer job seekers to have a bachelor’s degree in HR or a related field. Still, some will hire without a degree if the individual has the right skills and experience.
Expected skills and experience needed for remote HR professionals:
- Proficiency with MS Office or Google Docs
- Experience with Human Resources Information System (HRIS) or Human Resources Management System (HRMS)
- Great team player
- Excellent organizational
- Global communication skills
- Ability to multitask
- Ability to act with integrity, professionalism, and confidentiality
- Experience in change management is an advantage
From the job ads I looked at, only a few were for entry-level HR positions. Of the entry-level positions I found, they still wanted 1-2 years of experience; the vast majority of remote HR specialists require at least 3-5 years of experience.
With so many companies interested in hiring remote employees, there is an unprecedented number of places to find remote HR jobs. Whether you go through a staffing agency or apply directly to the company you want to work for, you are sure to find a role that suits your skills and preferences.
So if you’re tired of commuting every day or need a remote job with flexible hours, it may be time to pursue one of these HR opportunities!
