Virtually every organization needs HR personnel to hire, train, and assist employees. Often it is possible to get an entry-level job directly out of high school or after taking a short training program. Teens investigate the vital roles of staffing a company, training employees, learning HR policies and benefits, employee relations, and the types of jobs that are available in HR. Headhunting and recruitment firms and payroll processing firms are considered, as well as education requirements for the HR profession. Sidebars describe certification requirements, interviews with HR professionals, internships, compiling a resume, and tips for getting a first job.
