Good Day Fellow HR Enthusiast,
Human Resources is a wonderful and rewarding career, I am glad you have interest. There are many disciplines within the HR family such Benefits, HRIS, Talent Management, Talent Acquisition, Learning and Development, Employee Relations, Labor Relations, Compensation, Generalist, HR Operations, and Business Partnering. My recommendation is to pursue a degree in HR with a focus on what interests you. Look for entry level HR experiences such HR coordinator, HR analyst or recruiting coordinator. These types of positions will give you visibility into the various areas generalist’s touch. However, let’s be honest - I would take any opportunities that would give you experience in HR while you are still in school. Good luck on your HR career. I wish you the best.
