Human Resources Career Ways and Paths

No matter what the job market looks like, human resources may be a good career choice for you. Almost every company, regardless of what they do, has an HR department. You won’t find that kind of variety of potential employers in many other fields. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook predicts that the number of jobs in most HR positions will continue to rise faster than the average for all occupations well into the next decade.

What Makes A Great HR Professional?

Having excellent “people skills” is probably the most important requirement for successful HR professionals, but it certainly isn’t the only one. HR professionals must also possess strong organizational skills and the ability to multitask, think strategically and be a team player. These attributes are common across most professional career fields and help to explain why people from many different backgrounds gravitate toward HR jobs.

Some skills, however, are more uniquely specific to human resources:

  • Diplomacy
  • Ethics & Fairness
  • Confidentiality
  • Continuous Quality Improvement

What Types Of Jobs Can I Get In HR?

Think about what it takes to keep an employee happy, healthy and efficient throughout all the stages of his or her employment with a company. That produces a lot of different job opportunities! 

Here are the broad categories into which HR positions tend to fall:
  • Recruiters and Hiring Managers
  • Training and Development Coordinators
  • Compensation and Benefits Specialists
  • Employee and Labor Relation
  • Safety and Security Experts
Remember, as an HR professional, you aren’t limited to working for private companies. You may want to seek out third parties like employment agencies, government, and consulting firms.
