To start, most human resources careers require a bachelor’s degree in human resources management, business administration or a related field. Some positions may even require a master’s degree. On the other hand, it’s possible to create your own human resources career path by working with the same company and using that experience to move forward and around the company.Retail Human Resources Career Path.jpg
