“Melissa Hume is a Sydney-based HR professional with over ten years of human resources experience. She has always felt passionate about helping the community and coaching upcoming generations of HR practitioners. Her first book Career Guidance for Now and for the Future focused on how to secure employment through CV writing and interview techniques. In August 2020, Melissa was inspired and founded Career Guidance Now to support those who had lost their jobs due to the global pandemic.
Your HR Ally is Melissa’s second book. She noticed an inherent lack of Australian resources for those studying HR or seeking to pursue a HR career. Taking matters into her own hands, Your HR Ally was written to kickstart a HR career. In 2021 Melissa became an Excellence Awardee for ‘Australian HR Manager of the Year’. She has a Graduate Certificate in Business Administration, a Bachelor’s Degree majoring in Psychology, as well as certifications in safety and payroll. “
