In March, our profession reached a major milestone when SHRM awarded its 100,000th certification—just two years after launching the SHRM-SCP and SHRM-CP program. Practitioners who hold these credentials are the advance team for tens of thousands more who will pursue SHRM certification—and, importantly, recertification—in the coming years.
One of the next major steps in the evolvement of the SHRM Certification process has been completed. As of Tuesday, November 15, SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP exams have been accredited by The Buros Center for Testing, a pronouncement that the HR credentials meet the highest standards in testing.

Many of us on the Social Media team have been talking about our breakthrough moments in #HR. I have read many of them and found them to interesting and entertaining. So now my insecurities kick in here, is my story as interesting, as good, as captivating as others? I doubt it, but I will chime in on the theme of Breakthrough moments.

Hello and Happy New Year! You may have heard that the SHRM 2016 Annual Conference & Exposition is in Washington, D.C. this year. For many of you, this will come as no surprise but this meeting is my favorite time of year. The reason for that is plain and simple--There is no bigger learning, sharing, and developmental event in HR than #SHRM16. I encourage everyone to see what #SHRM16 and the future of HR are all about
The SHRM Foundation provides certification scholarships for HR professionals seeking SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP certifications. Applications for certification scholarships are now being accepted for the spring testing window.
Congratulations to all human resources professionals who recently passed the new SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP exam.
Many of the newly certified were so excited, they jumped onto Twitter to share their awesome accomplishment.

I was helping a friend with his job search. He is trying to obtain an entry level HR position. A position he found indicated the minimum education required was a high school diploma but 5 – 8 years of experience was necessary. Neither of us understood the logic. We do not know how a high school student can get that level of experience by the time they graduate. Could you please explain why this is common on most entry level HR positions?
Competency is defined as an ability or skill. Every profession has competencies. And we want competencies; they are the things that make us successful. You could say that jobs are made up of tasks (the actual things we do) and competencies (the skills we need to do them).
