Hello Mr. Mishra

However I would like to stress on the fact that I wanted to know -
HOW to get the opportunity to work in this profile after acquiring the skill set mentioned by you (as we are almost always shortlisted for recruiters profile on the basis of our current job responsibility)

Please guide us through the same.

Hi Mridusmita and Birinderjit,

HR generalist or specialist? Seems like a tough question especially on the HR yahoo groups forum or on this forum where we have a limited information about the people about their profiles and areas of interests, strengths and weakness.

I believe that what ever you decide today, you can always change your track tomorrow if you can address the following checklist honestly with yourself. Generalist profiles have to be flexible to unpredictable situations.

Do you like diversity in your profile or do you dread the unexpected chain of events which would be happen?

Do you like to get into the nitty gritty of the issues? And be fearless to show your ignorance on a subject which you are unfamiliar with.

What do you feel about the future as far as your skills sets is concerned.

What is your long terms goals and how this linked to your present current job/assignment?

This topic was discussed earlier and am providing the link and perhaps it may solve your queries and provide an insight on the same.

herewith ;
Generalist-HR Or HR-Recruiter ???

Hello Mridusmita,
Agree the shift from Recruitments to Generalist profile is not easy but it is possible if one is smart and looks at this process with a strategic point of view and upgrading your skills in the current role.
Let’s take a look at the broader functions of Generalist Profile :
Recruitment Management
Workforce Planning
Induction Management
Training Management
Performance Management
Compensation & Benefits
Attendance Management
Leave Management
Overtime Management
HR Policy
Grievance Redressal
Employee Satisfaction Survey
Exit Interviews & Process
Health & Safety


As a Recruiter – you are in touch with the ground reality and here what is important is to learn or understand these above aspects from the potential candidates during the course of interview or atleast gather these above information during the telephonic interview. Collate the information as per the levels and different domains/segments.
As a recruiter from the agency – it is very important to meet the candidates which unfortunately doesn’t happen much and the profiles are sent to the clients. If one is involved in pre-screening of the candidates – one can gather loads of information during the course of interview and also a great deal of information of C&B from the salary structure of the potential candidates.
Based on this, one must re-structure the profile – core skills of recruiting alongwith the understanding of the Generalist HR profile – like thorough knowledge of the C&B of particular domain, over view of the attrition rate of particular industry which u have handled, understanding of the best employee retention strategies in xyz segment...and so on.
Fine tune your interviewing skills of candidates ; learn the tips and implement them. Nothing like making mistakes and learning from it. Please remember not every Generalist HR professional is a good interviewer !..so you have an edge on this.
Once you are ready in a six months or one year’s time- start your focus on Small & Medium sector organizations as they would value your profile as a Recruiter alongwith understanding of core HR and may provide you an opportunity in core HR areas and after few years of experience, could move to a big corporate. Nothing like joining a start up as it involves a tremendous learning curve !.

In Nut shell, as a recruiter gives one a knowledge of the industries, processes, trends on compensation, collecting the pool of the potential candidates for future references, culture of the companies etc – a bird’s eye view of the external elements of the industry which HR generalist may not get the same outlook as they tend to have intra company’s process approach.
“In a chaotic world, the only competency that matters is continuous learning.” To improve and extend your career, you need to ponder what the near future holds.”
Best of Luck !

Dear mridusmita,

For your information most of the companies may not consider freshers for HR profile. Though you have got experience as recruiter still your are a fresher for HR Generalist profile.

The only way you can get into HR profile is to start your career in Admin position. The experience gathered as Admin can be considered for HR profile incase you have good grip in HR concepts as well.

Experience in Admin and good knowledge in HR profile would help you in making your dream profile. But this procedure may take long time.

Dear Mridusmita Ji

For switching over from recuiters profile to generalist profile you need to highlight your HR generalist skills along with recruitment profile.You can mention this as your second strength and your area of interest and most probably you need to apply in comapnies where HR generalist profile is required as freshers as well so in this if you get a chance you can learn practically from your seniors and may step in HR Generalist profiel with full strength.

One of my colleague has got the opportunity in this way and success too so i wish you can also get the same

Swtiching over no doubt not so easy but i would say even not so diffcult altogether only thing you have confidence and positive drive

WISH YOU ALL THE BEST

Hi Mridusmita,
Pursuing LLB would definitely assist in making smooth transition as an add on qualification as Generalist profile needs to be aware of the basic laws pertaining to employees especially pertaining to Employee Relations and Labour Laws, their interpretation and latest trends/updates.
Good Luck !
