Doing postgraduate degree in Human Resource Management or Industrial Psychology?

People think they are basically the same, but they are not. Is there anyone who is studying this or already working in one of these areas? I would like to know which would be better to study? Human resource Management or the Industrial Psychology? How do they differ in the work you will be doing and the people you work with. How are they different in job oppurtunities and the income you will get? please do not give me website where I can go and read about the information... I need someone who has first hand experience please!
