I think this is a new course by RP to be launch in 2014. There is a similar course by SP.

You should be able to find out more from the following website:

Hi there ,
Hr profession is pretty not bad for a lady , colleagues who are in hr sector after 5 years of experience earned about 4k-5k each month . I would say its pretty stable . To be honest, it really depends on what is your girl passion , most importantly she is working towards her passion which makes it more fulfilling :)

Just a note that RP uses problem based learning, which is totally different from the conventional classroom learning that we grow up with. I can't say whether it is better or worse than the other polys, but certainly the student needs to be very disciplined and very strong drive in order to learn more there. My advice is to find out more about the way lessons/tests etc are structured in this particular poly and see if suits your child.

I have the impression HR is sunset industry :siam:

Some MNCs don't even have a HR dept now, or at most 1 to 2 perm HR staff, the rest are outsource or contract staff. Recruitment also outsource

I think that 4-5K is only if they rise up the ranks. I do not think most of them achieve that amount within 5 years. For HR, it's a bonus if you have good personality, excellent communication skills, x factor and perhaps a pretty face and nice figure.

Yes alot of HR function are outsource now. But if your girl has passion for HR and can position herself as a HR business partner, such role can demand more. But these roles are usually held by degree holders.

For HR, I feel the individual must be friendly, approachable and vocal.

May i say something from the male perspective? :D

Almost all the the HR ladies in my workplace i know are pretty, vocal, gossipy and chatty... Can't be helped.. since HR is often the source of gossips and rumours. they usually know the salaries, the placement, promotions....

Sounds like a fun place to work in :) My experience has been that people in HR know how to keep a secret - their jobs depend on it. So I'm not sure about the gossipy part.
