Do you need a particular educational background?
I began with internships while in college studying for my Sociology degree. From there I got a job as a customer service associate in an HR Outsourcing company where I worked for a year learning about employee benefits (health and welfare/401K/ etc.) and laws that have to do with those benefits. Next, I found a position as an HR Coordinator with a manager who trained me in recruiting techniques. After a year at that job I was offered a position as an HR Generalist in another country working for a major airline.
The most important thing you can do is get educated, whether it be a degree in HR or Sociology (like myself), education is a very important first step. If you can, definitely seek out internships while still in college so that you can "get your feet wet" so to speak. From there it's really about climbing the ladder. Start applying for entry level positions in the field and go from there.
