Entry Level HR Survey
I'm currently writing an essay targeting entry level HR professionals and how they can get their first experience and/or job. That's where you come in. I am looking for insights and ideas to help ensure this information is extremely useful for them. The people reading this are the ones you might hire one day, so talk in terms of what you are looking for! I appreciate your help and support, and I know the next generation of HR pros does as well. This survey should take 3-5 minutes to complete.
Would you allow an entry level HR candidate to use non-work examples in lieu of paid HR experience?
Ex: college coursework and/or projects, volunteer experience, etc.

Solving the problem
I'm considering developing a short course that provides case studies, real-life examples, and common HR problems as a virtual learning environment. At the end of the course, students would be able to comprehend and complete some basic HR assistant tasks: completing an I9 form, screening resumes, perform research for policies, organize an employee file/folder, and coach a manager on how to handle an employee performance issue. How would you feel about an entry level HR candidate gaining this hands-on, practical experience via a course like this? Remember, a college education is good, but it rarely helps to provide these types of basic practical skills necessary to function as an HR professional.
If you said, "No" to the previous question, what, if anything, would change your mind? In other words, if this isn't the answer to the problem of how to get experience without a job, what is the answer? If you said, "Yes" and have additional thoughts, feel free to expand on them here.
I'm eager to learn what your thoughts are on this topic!
