Are you ready to take the PHR® or SHRM-CP® Certification Exam?
An honest assessment of skills, knowledge and responsibilities within the HR function is critical when deciding whether to seek HR certification.
The following profile of a typical PHR® candidate may help you determine which exam is appropriate for you.
The PHR® Certification Exam Candidate:
- Focuses on program implementation.
- Has tactical/logistical orientation.
- Has accountability to another HR professional within the organization.
- Has two to four years of exempt-level generalist HR work experience, but because of career length may lack the breadth and depth of a more senior-level generalist.
- Has not had progressive HR work experience by virtue of career length.
- Focuses his or her impact on the organization within the HR department rather than organization wide.
- Commands respect through the credibility of knowledge and the use of policies and guidelines to make decisions.
The SHRM-CP® Certification Candidate:
Current or most recent work experience has been operational in nature and involves activities such as implementing policies, serving as an HR point person in their organization or with organizations they support, and/or performing day-to-day HR functions.
