Human Resource Specialist

A human resource specialist is the happy face who interviews and hires employees, explains how the company works, and organizes job training. In fact, the HR specialist is probably one of the most patient and understanding people you’ll ever meet.

HR specialists recruit, screen, interview and place workers. They handle employee relations, compensation, and benefits and training. They also work to make sure employees understand a company’s history, goals and corporate policies.

While most of the time, you’ll be busy at work in an office, there are some occasions, an HR specialist may be required to travel. Those specializing in employee recruitment travel extensively to attend job fairs, visit college campuses and meet with applicants.
