Recruit the best talent by creating, marketing, and selling an Employee Value Proposition (EVP):

An important choice to ponder as you study toward a career in HR is whether you’d like to be a specialist or a generalist. Fortunately, the skills you’ll use in each capacity overlap, so you can move between these realms until you find the perfect fit. It’s wise to explore all the possibilities.

Those who’ve earned associate’s degrees and certificates in human resources are primed for entry-level positions as a human resources clerk, HR assistant, recruiter, training and development coordinator, payroll specialist or HR generalist.

Entering the field with a bachelor’s degree gives you access to more options, including working in employee relations, HR information systems, training and development, labor relations or as a compensation or benefit analyst.

Learn about Pay & Job Projections for human resources specialists and human resources managers. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ current Occupational Outlook Handbook places employment of human resources managers at nine percent through 2026, a little faster than average for all occupations. National long-term projections of employment growth may not reflect local and/or short-term economic or job conditions, and do not guarantee actual job growth.
