Default Is HR a good career to go/switch into?

Coming from a traditional engineering, been getting by with 7 years in the line and getting fed up with the prospects. Whenever I look for jobs on linkedin I see a lot of that the recruiters aka Talent Acquisition Partners are also once in technical fields. Why did they switch to do HR I wonder?

seems like HR is really quite non essential huh. So what's a good career switch for someone from a engineering background?

Some people just do that job as a part-time job to make the second income.
You are right. That is truth.
