My desired career is that of a human resource generalist. The field of a human resource generalist is responsible for the recruitment, new employee orientation, on-boarding and off-boarding, and prepares and maintain employee handbook of the organization’s workforce. To obtain a position as a human resource generalist, employers look for someone with a bachelor’s degree in human resource management. To obtain a position entering an entry-level HR position most employers will accept someone with a degree in business, accounting, or law, depending on the amount of experience they may have. But to become a top candidate for a human resource position employers look for someone with a master’s degree. The field of human resources can be broken down into many categories, for example, HR managers, sr. Managers, and directors of human resources. The job growth for an HR generalist is expected to grow by 9 percent from 2014 to 2024. Making it a fast-growing occupation, reports the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statics with the median annual salary of $104,440 for an HR manager. The reason why I chose this career is that I am very passionate about working with people in a way they can help themselves. It 's important to find the employees who are the right fit for the job and who can help improve the success of an organization.
