Are You Looking at Careers in Human Resources? Let National American University Help


Have you always been told that you are a people person? You may be a good candidate for working in Human Resources. In a post on what makes a good HR Manager in HR Daily Advisor, experts listed the following characteristics:

  • Highly organized
  • Good multitasker
  • Ability to make decisions about grey areas
  • Good negotiator
  • Excellent communicator
  • Ability to focus on both company and employee needs
  • Great at conflict management
  • Mutability

HR Managers must be able to effectively hire new employees and act as a liaison of an organization’s management team to its employees. HR Managers also typically work with current employees to communicate company benefits and policies, handle workplace situations or issues that may arise, and are usually responsible for implementing and processing other important employee paperwork, such as pay raises and review scores.

And there are positions available too. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for HR managers is expected to grow 13% from 2012 to 2022. A HR Manager earns a median annual wage of nearly $100,000, making it not only a rewarding career but a well-paying one as well. For those looking for an entry level position before management, HR Specialists are expected to see an increase in jobs in the same period with an overall growth rate of 15.5% from 2012 to 2022. HR Specialists earn a median salary of $56,850.
