How to become: Personnel and Recruitment Officers

You must complete either a university degree, or a professional development program or college diploma in personnel administration or a related field (business administration, industrial relations, commerce, psychology) and five years of experience.

You may be required to gain experience in a clerical or administrative position related to personnel administration.

With experience, you may move up the ranks to become a manager.
