Working as a Human Resource professional requires knowledge of employment laws, an understanding of compensation and benefits, communication skills, good instincts for hiring and working with people, and a strong sense of ethics and duty. Most people work in an office environment, but the job may require some travel to job fairs and recruiting events. While smaller businesses often don’t have dedicated HR staff, most larger companies do, and the demand for qualified candidates remains steady.

Getting started while you’re still in high school

You don’t have to wait to graduate from high school to start earning college credit.

The College Credit Plus program offers you an opportunity to earn college credit as early as seventh grade. Courses are frequently offered on-site at local high schools. Students may also have the option of taking LCCC classes online or on our campus. Classes taken through CCP count for both high school and college credit and are FREE for most students. 

The MyUniversity program, a unique partnership between LCCC and area high schools, provides a pathway for high school students to the full college experience – starting in high school!
