We used Fairclough's three-dimensional model for our discourse analysis becauseit’s a suitable model for a discourse analysis in general and that it is well compatible for studies of jobadvertisements. A discourse analysis can be used with the purpose to create an increased awareness ofthe language's different discourses and the impact that social practice has on language, which also fits our study's purpose to investigate different discourses in relation to societal change in job adverts forthe HR profession.The results in our study reveal that today’s HR profession still can be seen to have an endeavortowards becoming a professionalized profession. Yet today we cannot define the profession asprofessionalized in relation to what is requested in recent job adverts in this study. The study alsoreveals that along the side of the academization of society the employers has increased the request ofeducated HR-personnel. We draw the conclusion that our study further shows that the development ofhuman resources is an effect of its surroundings and that the HR profession will continue to develop inrelation to its society.
