HR Roles

Evil HR Lady

First I must say how much I’ve enjoyed your blog – it helped me a lot when I applied for a new job last year. Now (for only the second time in my career) I work for a company that is large enough to actually have an HR department! My question is, I see references to roles such as ‘HR Generalist’ and ‘HR Business Partner’, and I’m sure there are more I haven’t found yet. Could you please give a quick summary of the various HR roles and the differences? Oh the desire for Snark is overwhelming me.

Evil HR Lady

I may have hinted a few times that I know a thing or two about layoffs. This would be true. In fact, if you see me coming, it's best to start packing up your things right now because it will save us all hassle later on. This, actually, is not true. Your manager would be terminating you, not me, so feel free to chat with me and share your Christmas candy.) So, here's the deal. You may get laid off. Yes, I know, you are a stellar performer and your boss loves you and blah, blah, blah. Humor me.
