Part Time Options in HR

I tripped across this organization recently and think it is worth a look for those of you who are HR Professionals and would like flexible HR management or consulting opportunities.   According to their press release:  HR OptIn was created to help talented women opt back in to their chosen profession by sharing ideas and knowledge at a virtual online HQ. In this case, the chosen profession is Human Resources or HR for short, a department you’ll find at most mid-to-large size companies. HR OptIn, and its parent company, Atlanta-based Incite Strategies, Inc., already has relationships with some of the nation’s premier HR departments at Fortune 1000 companies across America.The HR OptIn Website serves as an on-ramp to flexible, project-oriented career opportunity by employing the best practices of Web 2.0. First there is a Reading Room where community members can read articles written by their peers as well as create and upload their own stories and “Expert Guides.” Each article or guide can be voted on by others — thumbs up or thumbs down.  More than just one blog at, visitors can read several, a virtual community of experts whose ideas are channelled into a feed that site users can subscribe to. HR OptIn members can also share bookmarks to their favorite Web hot spots. Giving back to society, HR OptIn will also donate a portion of its revenues to the charities selected by the group.HR Opt-In was founded by Monique A. Dearth, recently named one of the “2007 Enterprising Women of the Year” by Enterprising Women Magazine. In 2004, Monique was profiled by the Atlanta Business Chronicle as one of ”40 of Atlanta’s Most Promising Young Stars under age 40.” An HR wunderkind for GM and GE, Monique knows HR inside and out, online and off. So she knows HR OptIn is an idea whose time has come.   Learn more by visiting
