Before you quit your current engineering job, remember that securing a job within the company you currently work for in a different department can be easier than finding a new company to work for. Take a look at your current company's job postings to see if there are any jobs that you qualify for in their HR department.
It can also be helpful to continue your education while you look for a job in HR. If you currently have a bachelor's degree, try finding an MBA program that work with your schedule. Or, look for HR postgraduate certificate programs that can help you learn Java and other skills you need to move into this field. You should also remember that tailoring your resume to focus on HR-related skills can help employers notice your abilities.
