Women in the Field
Some 40% of human resource managers are women, according to the Princeton Review.

Experienced human resource managers earn salaries in the range of $56K to $89K, with the median at $74.3K, according to William M. Mercer, Inc., a consulting and survey firm based in New York. If you're just starting out, though, you'll be making a lot less for the first several years.
