Career and Graduate School Opportunities

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the employment outlook for those in the human resources field is bright for all occupations in the sector, with employment in some human services professions increasing “much faster than the average,” the highest rate that BLS cites. The increase is due to a combination of a growing elderly population and the need by some organizations to outsource services.
