There will not be any saturation in the jobs related to the Human Resource Management because of the following reasons:

1. As the industries grow more and more people will be getting hired across various departments. With the increase in the number of professionals there will be increased need of managing those professionals. There comes the requirement of an Human Resource Professional.

2. In the next few years people with diverse skill sets will be joining various industries. Also the cross cultural communication will become very important. For example if you are working in India you may have to go abroad in work's need and also people from other countries can work from here as well. In this extremely diverse environment, the need of human resource management will only increase with the coming times.

3. The human resource management is not only working with the people all the time they also have to maintain a number of records and information. They have to take care of the confidential information of the company. In the growing information world, the role of human resource professionals will become even more prominent in the next few years.

4. Human Resource Management is an effective bridge between the senior management and the employees. They act like the messengers for both the parties and therefore need to communicate a number of things in a nice and precised manner. In this regard they are extremely valuable assets for the senior management as they take the pressure off the management. Similarly they are valuable for the employees as they hear their problems and work with the management in solving those problems. They are both ways the essential assets for any company. And no company would like to lose its assets. So, the opportunities will only grow for them.

Therefore, it is clear that Human Resource Management is an evergreen field and will always be full of job opportunities. You only need to nurture your skills well in order to get the right job in this field.

Hi There,

Yes. Rightly said there is a saturation in the HR job.

The reason being, HR is a job which involves a lot of strategising and most importantly being innovative.
But these days students fresh out of a B-School, just wish to imply textual knowledge, which is not applicable to current working situation.

Try to bring some freshness in the job, at the same time be empathetic and not sympathetic, learn to communicate, look out for challenges.

Or else, be ready for an Admin job, which though is a part fo the HR role, but is different from the hardcore HR job.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck..........

Hello, being honest Human resources field is truly exceptional and diverse in its own right. There is no sort of saturation in this field as such but there is always a lack of potential skillfull candidates that brings in a gap in the sector. This is one reason why to some it may appear as saturation.

HR was initially restricted to basic management and administration and this field has been through sea changes since then. For example, HR expanded from recruitment and selection to talent management, HR strategy management and so on. More recently, it acts in an important integral role in functioning of organizations. This field has also expanded into other areas of social sciences, like welcoming the Sociologists, Psychologists and Organisational psychologists. HR research is also expanded into the above three mentioned areas in over two decades. The industry is well growing in its own way, yet there is always a gap in terms of finding students with the right skill sets for the people's job.

Students need to learn, develop and demonstrate people skills in order to perform in a HR role. There is a lot of myth around the HR field, as it is restricted to administration, or mostly suitable for only female candidates. Society is very slowly changing and the perceptions towards this field is also changing. Yet, the progress is not rapid which reflects on the shortage of right talent required for this job. It is just that lots of people blindly choose their career, without assessing their skillsets and get stuck up into the wrong domain and this way HR area is very much prone to such issues. If you can demonstrate people skills, you have a very bright future in this field.
