3 Ways To Boost Your Pay

large_6355318323Are you an HR professional determined to make 2014 your best year in your career?  If you’re like most HR professionals, you’re not likely to see much of an increase in pay, according to an article in the December issue of HR Magazine written by Joseph Coombs.  However, there are some HR professionals positioning themselves for big financial growth.  In this blog, read about how to be one of those select few who realize large financial gain in 2014.

Many HR professionals feel as though their salary growth is stuck, especially since they’ve seen little increase in recent years.  On the other hand, HR professionals with staffing responsibilities say that it has become increasingly difficult to find candidates who possess the qualifications they are looking for.  If you’re one of the many people in the HR profession, you have two opportunities in 2014 to grow your career and have it pay off financially:

Get into staffing.  Because of the scarcity of talent out there, companies are starting to beef up their recruitment game.  Whether you work for a third party company or within a company’s own staffing division, employers are realizing they need to pay well to have their staffing departments recruit top talent.

Get certified.  Because of the lack of qualified candidates, you have an opportunity to become one of those qualified candidates.  By determining what you like to do most in your job today and getting certified and a more in-depth education on those skills, you can position yourself as an expert in that field.  Not only will you get to do the part of your job you like most every day, you’ll get paid much more as a specialist.
