2014 Hot Jobs: Human Resources

There has been a recent uptick in hiring for HR professionals, a positive sign for an industry that is steadily gaining momentum following the economic downturn. According to a January 2014 survey from the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), HR generalists are in the highest demands and salaries for these positions are on the rise. SHRM also noted that organizations are also looking for HR professionals with training and development expertise, experience in HR information systems and compensation experts.

Several industries have seen an uptick in the hiring of HR professionals, including manufacturing, professional services and high tech industry sectors.
