What Can You Do with a Human Resources Management Degree?

Radek, what jobs can you get with a Human Resources Management Degree? I’m wondering, what can I do with a Human Resources Management Degree?

The success of any organization depends on its people, so an organization of any size will need people trained in human resources. This includes big businesses, small businesses, nonprofits, colleges and universities, banks, and government agencies.

Successful human resources program grads often end up responsible for recruiting employees and for finding them in heaping piles of resumes. They often have to interview them, train them, and make sure they have all the necessary licenses and certifications. They are often responsible for setting people up with benefits, and are often in charge of payroll. At times, they become involved in labor negotiations and dispute resolution. In short, human resources managers work hard, work with lots of people, and often work many hours in an office setting.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for human resources professionals is expected to grow much faster than average (by 22% from 2008 through 2018).
