The Human Resource Management (HR MGMT) major prepares you for careers in human resource (HR) management and general management. Increasingly, organizations are hiring well-trained professionals to manage the most important asset of the business, its human resources. The Human Resource Management department offers students the training needed to prepare for this important area of business.

Typical first jobs for Human Resource Management majors include corporate recruiter, employee relations specialist, compensation analyst, corporate trainer, HR generalist, and management trainee. Typical jobs held five-ten years out include HR director, staffing manager, compensation manager, training manager, and employee relations director.

Human Resource Management majors are encouraged to become involved in the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). Guest speakers, networking events, internships and co-ops, career development activities, and the résumé book are just a few benefits of joining. This organization is open to all FSBM majors. There are two student SHRM chapters, one at Main Campus and the other at Ambler. The Main Campus chapter office is located on the ground floor of Speakman Hall. For more information, contact Dr. Kathleen Davis at 215-204-8435, davisk@temple.edu or Dr. Blau at 215-204-6906, gblau@temple.edu, or the SHRM office at 215-204-1626. At Ambler, contact Megan Rimer at 215-204-2371, mrimer@temple.edu, or the SHRM officers at 267-468-8365.
