Career in HR Management

At the Institute of Technology, you can earn your human resources degree at our California or western U.S. campuses. With our comprehensive human resources management degree program, you can be prepared for entry-level employment opportunities in a wide range of business settings.

Your job as a human resource administrator is to recruit, energize, and retain the most highly qualified employees for your business. As a human resource administrator, you must perform administrative duties such as handling employee benefits, recruiting new employees, conducting interviews, and teaching company policies to new staff members. Today, human resource administrators are increasingly consulting managers and top executives with strategic planning for their companies.

If you’re considering earning your human resources degree, you must be able to work well with individuals in a team environment. In our HR management program in California and the western U.S., you can develop the skills and knowledge to work effectively within groups and in administrative settings in business, government, or educational environments.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2010-2011 Edition, human resource administrators held about 904,900 jobs in 2008. Earning your human resources management degree in California or the western U.S. can lead to strong career opportunities. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that human resources careers will experience faster-than-average growth with overall employment growing by 22-percent between 2008 and 2018. As health, safety, health care, and retirement procedures continually change, the demand for human resources administrators will increase.
