So Going into HR does not guarantee a better salary?

I am looking into getting a Bachelors in Human Resource Management...I already have a Bachelors in Human Services, and if my calculations are correct, it would only take me a little over a year to get another bachelors degree. I thought about getting my Masters in HR but have NO experience in the field and then I would be overqualified with no experience to help me.

I am currently applying to grad programs to get a masters in higher education administration, but I am looking into HR as a back up in case I do not get into grad school. Should I go with the bachelors in HR or try to get an HR job with my human service degree? I know it is difficult to break into so any advice would be great!

HR is only as good as your non-perfect boss and senior mgmt usually doesnt give a squat about HR unless it deals with the final steps of hiring /firing/benefits. It is not worth it if you are truly ambitious! The money is not there unless you work for say, Disney .

You are on the money with that one. I have a BA in HR Management and to me it is use less. I honestly regret even going back school and for degree.

I really want to get into the HR field; however I have no experience. Currently, I am looking for a position so I can just "get my foot in the door" and gain experience in the field. I have a BA in psychology and a MBA. So many times I hear, "You are over qualified" or "You don't have enough experience" while interviewing for positions. Would getting a PHR increase my chances of getting into the field?

Peony in Duluth, Georgia said: As a corporate Recruiter, and I have seen this many times, I think you should first become certified before you get the Master's degree. If you are looking to get into HR with little or no experience, getting a Master 's degree in HR now without some experience will put you into the "over qualified category". I think you should go for the Master's after having at least 2+ years of HR experience.

Totally agree, I know of a friend who got a Caribbean job in HR on www.caribbeanjobsonline.com, and an international certificate in HR was more important to the company. Actually she had no Master degree, by a certificate
