Lets understand, its quite tough. One possible way is (which is quite slow)..get into Recruitments..choose a good Consultancy..get a sound Experience, after which start applying in Recruitment profiles in corprate..these days Corporates have diversified HR Functions..Recruitment has become a specific and seperate function..if u get a break in corporate in recruitments, then u can slowly with the dint of ur hard work can ask to be shifted to a HR Profile.
If this doesnt interest, then just get a Good Exp in Recruitments..i have some friends who (good & intelligent candidates), having 2-3 yrs of exp in Recruitments have been picked up for Generalist Profile by companies like Eicher/Educomp/hdfc bank.
On the second thought, Recruitment line is not that bad either, in many cases, Recruitment Managers earn more than HR Managers. So if ur hitting off well with Recruitments u can just as well stay
Rest all is upto u

Hi,

I have gone through the array of posts on the opportunities available for Freshers ( HR ). I agree all of us have gone through our small or big phase of start up struggle, and one should not be scared of the same. Rather you should utilize your time in strenthening your basics which we tend to passby in our college days.
Recently we had couple of positions in our team and we thought of hiring freshers but to my utter surprise, we could not find simple down to earth MBA who were good at their HR Basics. It took us 4 months to close on these positions !!
And yes!! on thing I would certainly say.may be the colleges and institutes paint the mind of their students about the corporate culture and expectations from them.
I understand you might have to wait for the right opportunity but it is good to wait and use this time properly rather than hurrying burying into any worng place. A decent company with good manager ( who can teach you !!! ) should be the best deal I would say.

so cheer up and all the best.

Ps. I am looking for some good summer trainees ( 07 - 09 batch ) .. so anyone interested??

Hi Rakesh

Thanks a million for this thread!!!!

I am BBM, MBA (HR) graduate, a fresher and am struggling with searching for a job with a profile other than recruitment. Since weeks i have been sending my resume across several consultancies and to companies operating in different sectors. I receive a number of calls from consultants for recruitment profile and every time i receive a call, i am in a delimma whether to say yes or no.

The worst thing i feel about these consultancies is, they dont differentiate normal graduates with graduates specializing in HR or no matter any field (especially when it comes to pay).

As per a few research studies, the % of attrition among freshers is much lower in comparison with the experienced candidates. Moreover when it come to the cost incured by the companies (especially MNCs) in helping experienced candidates to unlearn their old practices and help them to adapt to the new culture, is reasonably high.

All we can do is just wait and watch when our stars turn to our favor...

Thanks and Regards

Hi Rakesh

Looking from your point of view, it is definitely difficult to land up with a good job. However, what I feel is that one cannot expect companies to hire somebody simply because of a B.Tech qualification or because of an MBA in HR. What is more important is the way you sell yourself to companies. In HR also, it is important for us to find out what is the area that we are interested in, spend time and energy to gather the latest information on it and finally network not just through websites, but also by writing papers, submitting articles in HR magazines and sending these articles along with the CV (in hard copy format) to HR Heads of companies!! Then see the response that you get.

The primary rule to getting selected in any organization is to let the organization know what is in it for them. Only then will companies even think of looking at the CV of a fresher.

however, all said and done, it is the hard work that we need to put in and some amount of luck as well that will determine that chances of getting ur dream job

Warm Regards

Hi Rakesh
How r u doin?
I must say tat ur posts r very informative.
Wat i feel Rakesh after talking to the seniors is tat it takes almost 2yrs for freshers or sum1 like us to make a full fledged career in HR Generalist Role.Freshers can start with recruitment(in corporates preferably)initially, and slowly shift towards the Genaralist Role.
Generalist Role requires people like us to have exp in many fields such as induction,Training & Development and many more which we can learn gradually with bit of exp.We can't learn the HR facets all at once.
I guess i am correct.Seniors pls correct me if i am wrong.
I hope Rakesh my post helped u a bit in answering your queries.

I am really very very happy…. To see so many people who are still concerned about others problems and are more than willing to extend their support to the needy…. Truly some instances like these… inspire us to do our own bit of help…. Once again Hats Off to all of you and a heartfelt thanks to each and everyone who has posted…..

I AM SORRY IF MY POSTS ARE BIG…. ITS BECAUSE I AM TRYING TO SUMMARIZE ALL THE POSTS AND TRY AND HELP OTHERS ( NEW JOINEES ) GAIN KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE DISCUSSION AND GIVE IN REPLIES FOR THE EARLIER POSTS…. SO DO EXCUSE ME FOR THAT….

Hi Anurag… thank you for taking your time out to think and write the post… I guess I have to be more patient… atleast I would assure you that…

Hi Gipsy… well I am extremely sorry that my post did confuse you even more… but lets face it... these queries which we posted are actually facts… and as I said earlier the basic objective here is to gain proper guidance for our problems from the experienced people…. Hence I request the seniors to guide my friend from Assam… and all the very best gipsy….

Hi Sukanya… thank you so much for sharing your valuable experience… I am sure this post did definetly instill some hope for us….

Hi Sowjanya…. As per your Query related to taking up a specialization…. This is again purely out of my own experience that I am telling… as I myself have completed my B.Tech (ECE).. I will not suggest but rather put in a point which would be useful in making your decision….my lecturer only told me one thing… if non commerce people take finance they must prepared in such a way that they you should be able to compete form three different quarters.. that is CA’s , MBA ( Finance ) & ICWA’s as there is always a chance for them to apply for the same positions…. Rest you can take the decision…. Do let me know as to what you decided upon….

Hi Kkr… I am sorry to have addressed in that word as I don’t have your name details…. Anyways what I would suggest… please don’t go in the companies which don’t pay you in the training period… as I feel that we have the necessary qualifications to perform the job and I don’t see any reason as to why they wouldn’t pay you… remember that a job is equally important for the candidate as well as the company… so do go in for any free service….

Sawant Sir,

I genuinely from the bottom of my heart thank you for taking your valuable time out to share your experiences…. I truly feel proud to receive responses from so many people… that too from different places, locations and above all… highly experienced individuals who share in their part of struggle… I must say that posts from such experienced people of your stature will not only boost our freshers confidence…. but also I am sure… would encourage many of our seniors to build their own career…

What I really liked in your post was the advice which you gave in such simple words…

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.

And how you actually disproved the theory of top B schools phenomena… saying that B School has limited gurantee and your own strength provides more security and prosperity.

I sincerely suggest that everyone of you please read the post for self encouragement…


Hi Sujatha… as you told me not to lose hope… I think all this posts are given because we still have hope to get settled in better companies… and I sure with so many peoples best wishes… the day would come soon…. Thanks a ton for the post…

Hi Padmini… there is a point which padmini mentioned… with respect to the BPO’s… i am sure to try my luck in that industry too what are other freshers doing… come on pull up your socks and get ready to wage a war on the BPO’s … thank you…

Hi Aryan & Nanda… thank you so much buddies for your concern and your suggestion… I am sure many freshers are looking at this post.. and will decide what’s best… its more important for me that you are ready for helping us… which is truly wonderful on your part…

Hi Vineetha… thank you so much for replying again and helping my friend… Unlike the earlier post… I am sure that this time no one can dare disagree with what you say… extremely pleased to listen again from you… do keep posting… and JOYTHI has a query for you…

Hi Monika… it was really good of you to make us understand and focus on not wasting our valuable time… ( in a way she has challenged that we are not competent :icon4:.. hmmm :mad:… come on freshers let us use our time in getting our basics right and disprove her… if done…. I think she would be the happiest amongst us… ) thank you…

Hi Natasha… Seniors… Natasha does have a valid point to be considered… WHAT DO WE DO WHEN CONSULTANCIES DON’T DIFFERNTIATE BETWEEN MBA’S AND NON MBA’S… eager to know more about it…

And lastly Hi Simonthy… happy to hear from you again… Vineetha has definetly shared views which were useful to all of us… I hope it was helpful for you… do keep posting…

Hi Rakesh
You are puttting reallity but do not frustrate with this situation.
We all were going through this stage, we were also waiting for Opportunity,
But my suggission is do not expect only MNC's , But i would like to say
don't miss/ignore any vacancy whether it will MNC/SMALL SCALE.
register your name in consultacies as well as try to search references.
and Be ready with your basic Knowledge.
Wish u Best Luck for your career.
