HR Manager Named Top-5 Job for Career Growth Opportunities

If you’re looking for a career path that offers an abundance of opportunities for advancement, working in human resources is about as good as it gets.

That’s what a recent Glassdoor study found after analyzing millions of reviews on its site, ranking jobs based on a career opportunity rating, median base salary, and number of openings for each position.

HR Manager cracked the top-five, edging out jobs like Data Scientist and Business Development Manager despite a significantly lower median salary.
