I work in Global Talent Acquisition/Recruiting and I love it!!! The reason being is because I enjoy helping so many people obtain jobs and finding the right talent for my company. I get great joy in knowing that my efforts are not in vain. I am not only making a big difference within my company, but I am making someone's day brighter by getting them hired.
I kind of stumbled upon Human Resources. I knew it always existed, but before I took my first course in it, I wanted to be a chef. Though, I learned through my different courses that I was geared towards serving people and then I stumbled upon Human Resources.
I really love the ability to represent the employee to my employers. I get to make decisions that impact them, hopefully always for the better. It's a dynamic field with so many options as Jennifer mentioned below. You can choose how you want to work with people: training and development, benefits and comp..etc..
Also, there are a lot of laws regulating employment. I find them all quite fascinating.
Human Resources is a very diverse field that has opportunities in several areas. I chose to work in a generalist capacity directing and overseeing the HR departments like Benefits, Compensation, Talent Acquisition, Talent Management etc... What I enjoy most is the diversity of the work, its always challenging and always changing.
