Human resources professionals plan, direct, and coordinate the administrative functions of an organization. They oversee the recruiting, interviewing, and hiring of new staff; consult with top executives on strategic planning; and serve as a link between an organization’s management and its employees.*

Employment of human resources professionals is projected to grow 9 percent from 2016 to 2026. As new companies form and organizations expand their operations, they will need human resources professionals to oversee and administer their programs and to ensure that firms adhere to changing and complex employment laws. Strong competition can be expected for most positions.*

The median annual wage for human resources professionals was $60,350 in May 2017.*
