Young man getting ready for his graduation ceremonyAnd while not many colleges offer a specific Bachelor’s Degree in Human Resources, most colleges will have classes in the subject, and some will offer concentrations in HR.

The area of human resources is often overlooked by students attending business school. Yet most businesses place a high value on their HR departments and the role they play in the growth of a company.

A good HR department will recruit, hire, train, discipline and terminate employees; oversee payroll and employee benefits and often be the contact point for outside companies and individuals. An HR professional’s duties will vary based upon the size of the department. Employees will specialize more in larger departments, while members of small departments will end up having to wear many different hats and perform a variety of functions. In this regard, it is sometimes advantageous for recent college graduates to get their first position with a smaller company where they can learn the different areas of the personnel and human resources division.

Most employees in the personnel field will work in recruitment and employment, training and development, or compensation and benefits.
