FACT: HR is a knowledge-based profession.
The Future Focus feature (open to SHRM members only) of the December issue of HR Magazine (open to all), captures the findings of the 2007 HR Career Survey. The findings indicate that HR "is a knowledge-based profession with an increasing need for more skilled and educated professionals as baby boomers approach retirement--a profession tapping into the growing base of women, particularly young women, with college degrees."
Yeah for women in HR. Yeah for men in HR. Yeah for a college education. Yeah for the HR profession.
