Hi Rakesh,
I feel the job scenario for HR is improving now.
But its not always about the qualifications and roles. I would like to share my story here. I started my career as a conselor in a training institute, which is a part of a small pvt firm. Once I assisted the HR executive in some recruitment activities and the management was quite pleased with my performance and thus promoted me to the HR dep. Though I was only into rec but then the Tag of HR Exe of a company helped me immensely. And now after one year, I am working in another company as a Hr generalist. And am also pursuing my MBA(HR) in dist learning
All I wanted to tell you is that recruitment is fine, but even if you are doing recruitments and are a part of the HR team of a COmpany, u do get the scope to learn the other facets of HR. Which is not there in a consultancy.
So try harder, but dont worry about profile. The HR professionals also have to be good at recruitments.

Dear Mr.Rakesh,

As experience HR Professional I would share some of my experience because every one has different experience and they advise differently.

I would advise to treat your first 3 years as dedicated to hard work and eexperience. THis is more important than your qualification because this will be your foundation for career. Choose better organization rather than better salary because you will endup doing small nature of job in one corner in big big business empire. Start with medium scale industry with exposure to all facit of HR activities and participation will be an asset.

It's not enough to start career with big names and you survive in their culture and not in the outside world or after the industry or unit closure people found struggling to pace with skill/ competancies to meet market demand. Economic growth and slowdown is always drive your career if you want to move upward. But if you think sticking to one job with MNC tag is also good until that MNC doing well in India and think of what if not.

Instead of depending on MNC security of job try to stand on your own feet will be your permanent security and key to your prosperity.

I never did graduation from B School or worked in MNC until 17 years. I worked in small scale Industry in late 80's move on th medium scale textiile industry further Joined Public Sector at age 36 I become Personnel Manager in Government of India Enterprise, then left in three years further moved to Indian Market leader before myfirst overseas assignment in Africa. Now since two years I am working in worlds largest oil producer Saudi ARAMCO as HR Specialist- Policy &Compensation. 30% worlds oil produced by Saudi Aramco with production capacity 1.28 million barrels per day. I am working in offshore site which has got production capacity double of entire India's production capacity.

This was in order to prove that MNC, B School has limited gurantee and your won strength provides more security and prosperity.

Wish you all the best and good career in the years to come,

With Regards

Hi Rakesh,

Firstly,though am not a senior member to talk about the issue,still i dare to put in my comments here.

I have remembered those days of struggle in my intial days to show my mark in the get the good break one needs to have sound social contacts (it will help atleast to get the interveiw calls,& from there we need to show the meettle in interveiw,it depends on us)
yes i do admitt that consultancy pays very less,but i hv seen many ppl who jumped from consultancies to good coampnies (becoz being in consultancies help in building up the rapport,hence getting good breaks)
Coming to & then doing MBA,to my knowledege these are 2 different fields so it doesnot add much value until & unless its related to engineering field.
HR needs more matured & responsible people which only comes with experience..hence ppl look out for experinced guys.

I suggest sumthing here, in BPO fields they are looking for freshers in this should help you in getting good breaks....i strongly beleive having experince in BPO will be an added advantage...because experince is different & will be exposed to the world in dealing different types of pple.

Its not impossible to get breaks but definetly it is hard...but hard work pays....beacuse am the live example for it just after i finshed my MBA'06 i have been employed with one of the TOP ITES in HR-generalist role (Its my first company)still am with the same company..

So dont llose hope dear...just try out & BE CONFIDENT...because oppotunity comes rarely so Grab it!!!!!

it's better to start with a recruitment firm coz. as a fresher it is difficult to get a job as a H.R generelist.At the end if you have a experience of 2yrs of recruitment you can get a good break anywhere.
But make sure you choose a right firm.

Its common 4 very body that they vl get frustrated if thay wont get jobs in MNc wait for the opportunities to knock ur door for that u must have some experience in HR
Ther r n no of consultancies offering Post as HR recruiters for freshers first try for them after few months of experince (9months to 1 year ) you will get openings for core HR activities
All the best for ur future
