Glassdoor Pick No. 2: HR manager
Median annual salary: $85,000
Human resources manager — charged with evaluating and implementing employee relations, programs and policies — ranks second, due to the high level of career opportunities and number of job openings. "As retaining top talent becomes just as important as recruiting top talent, companies are investing more to keep their employees satisfied — which means recruiting young professionals who can bring innovative ideas to the human resources department and help define and maintain company culture," according to Glassdoor.
Some employers have multiple employees in an HR role, so a new grad may start out in a different job title, such as HR coordinator, which can lead to a rewarding career path.
