If you think you are good with people, want to make policies in the future, would like to interview people, offer them a deal, make job descriptions for them, negotiate with them, perform appraisals, identify training gaps and needs, Train and coach people, make employee handbooks, make employee benefit plans, create compensation plans and handle employee data then HR is the specialization you will want to choose.

HR is an important field since this is one of the basic support functions of a good organization.The HR is the authority to hire or fire people.It makes the rules the employees follow.

If you are interested in the activities that I have mentioned in the first paragraph then HR is the right field for you.

I have myself done my Master in HR. At the Bachelors level, I hadn't decided what major to choose for my Masters but gradually I realized that I was good with people and would like to be have the authority to judge them on their skills and performance and be in charge of appointing or firing them. I also had an interest in training and coaching people and that lead me to my degree in HR.

Human Resource Management is a rapidly expanding area as an increasing number of organizations are realizing that their employees and their employees' expertise are vital assets to the company. These degrees aim to show you the importance of this area and how to manage people effectively in order to improve the success of a business. It helps you develop a range of transferable skills, which will help you to formulate, evaluate and recommend solutions to business problems, take responsibility and initiative in projects, develop information technology skills and communicate effectively.

They also work in a variety of roles. They may, for example, be responsible for recruiting and selecting the best employees available for a job. They also counsel employees, conduct training and career development programs and perform job evaluations. They work in compensation and benefits administration and participate in negotiations. They also engage in personnel research and job analysis. Human resource managers usually get to top positions quicker than other managers. I think these might be reasons people go for specialization in HR these days.

Major in HR is a good career choice. I am also planning to go for it and the reason is that HR is expanding very rapidly. The transformation from personnel management to Human Resource Management has proved that productivity of an organization is partially dependent on the HR department of the company. This is also admitted by the companies and the scope of HR is growing. For example, Southwest Airlines have names their HR department as "People Department" and they consider that the skilled labor in their company is only because of HR contributions.

Moreover, the skills like ability to work with diversified people, promotion of the organizational goals, persuasion, congenial personality and to work under pressure can also make an individual best for this field. Individuals with HR majors are considered as assets and they are offered advanced positions like arbitrators, and managers. Moreover, Majors in HR is a good option for the individuals who are always interested to get authority and contribute in important decisions of the companies.
