New signs of growth are visible in the human resources market as companies are recognizing the need for retaining talent in a post-recession market. Fed up with getting on with what little they have, human resources managers are now looking for what else is available for them. But still the human resources management market is choppy and corporate employers are choosy.

There seems to be a shift in the attitude of companies. Hitherto, companies were used to take someone, train him and bring him into financial services, but now they prefer a turnkey and as such candidates are finding it difficult to switch industries. In other words, companies are now industry focused.

If you are aiming at a human resources position with a big salary tag, look for positions where you combine analytical tasks with communication and people skills. Jobs that involve in grooming corporate culture, handling training, designing compensation or career paths, and attracting or retaining talent may offer big salaries. These niche areas have some of the highest-paying human resources jobs.



Take a look at the following high-paying jobs:

Top human resources executive: Get a master's degree in organizational development, and HR certifications. Gain some experience in strategic, analytical roles in organizations that are restructuring. Then you are eligible for the job of a top human resources executive whose salary is around $270,000.

Human resources director: The salary for this position depends on the size of the company, size of the employee base, scope of the role and the location. The average pay is over $170,000.

Organizational development director: If you are capable of handling classroom training and building development courses, you will have good bargaining power to be an organizational development director that can fetch you over $152,000. Begin this career by teaching training courses, and then look for opportunities to add course design and succession-planning skills to make your resume attractive. Many companies are combining development director position with training director position that carries little lower salary tag of $146, 000.

Executive compensation manager: There are more openings for executive compensation managers than the number of candidates available. Hence the salaries are hitting the $140,000 to $150,000 range with a 15 percent to 20 percent bonus opportunity in the Northeast. If you are a compensation analyst with four to five years' experience you can expect a base of $70,000. You can take this job with finance or accounting background and willing to learn human resources functions.

Change management specialist: If you are in the know of building benefits and programs that add organizational flexibility or taking the corporate culture to a different direction, you have a great demand. The salary is over $128,000.
