HR professionals are gaining new ground in the job market today. While many industries are experiencing economic woes, HR professionals are seeing job and salary increases. HR assistants, recruiters, and trainers should be set to look forward to a bright future in the HR job sector.

Job seekers are wary about the present economy, and the uncertainty of the market has surely sent some fears into all of our lives. An especially stressful issue for those who are employed is asking for a raise at this troublesome time. However, HR professionals won’t really have to worry about either — at least not for a while. Careers in the HR sector are on the rise and doing much better than they have in the past. Jobs in the HR industry and HR salaries are reaching much greater heights than they have in recent years.

According to the 2008 ExecuNet annual Executive Job Market Intelligence Report, which included surveying 250 employers, human resources jobs will be some of the most in-demand jobs in 2008.

HR Salaries and Jobs on the Rise

In addition, there will be an increase in human resource assistant salaries starting this year according to the OfficeTeam 2008 Salary Guide. There will be about a 5.3% increase in pay for HR professionals according to the survey. The average starting salary for an HR assistant will now be between $27,250 and $37,500.

The competitive locations and expansions of companies are partially responsible for the increases. People who are skilled and more effective in the HR area will gladly benefit from these developments, although others in the current job market may not be as lucky.

Recruiters and trainers are expecting pay raises as well because of their large roles in bigger companies. A human resource specialist can now earn $51,800, up 15.1% according to a recent survey done by Mercer Human Resource Consulting in combination with the Society for Human Resource Management.

HR executive median salaries are also up according to the survey. An executive human resources professional can earn upwards of $176,200. A management executive “based in a parent organization” with “industrial relations responsibilities” can earn a hefty salary of $240,000 according to the results.

A variety of HR professionals are reaping the benefits, not just executive managers. Benefits managers, recruiters, and training managers have also seen increases in their pay. The average salary for recruiter positions is up 10.4% — around $65,900 according to the survey.

On top of the pay increases, more human resource professionals are now getting stock options and receiving bonuses. Top HR management executives can look for the biggest increases, as their average pay is up 7.5%, while also receiving other competitive rewards.
