Hello to all seniors
I need your advice as i think your valuable advices can only make me step towards the right goal in my career.I ve finished my BE and currently i am doing PGDBA from SCDL.
I ve 1yr of exp as an IT recruiter in a consultancy firm.
My question is
"can i make a shift from HR Recruitment to HR Generalist profile where i ll take care of other HR activities apart from Recruitment?"
Does shifting to HR Generalist role requires lot of exp in HR Generalist?I am very confused.

Hi Simontiny,

You can very well make a shift from a recruiters profile to a generalist profile but the shift and the growth has to be gradual, there is no fast track for shift from a recruiter to a Generalist.

Please be informed that HR has different functions and its not possible to learn everything at once. Exactly why all the good positions in HR requests atleast 2 years of experience.

Also be informed that HR is a daily learning process, you will come across issues that are unique each and every day.

Anyways if what you are looking at is a Generalist profile its a gradual process:

The role includes

Recruitment Management
Workforce Planning
Induction Management
Training Management
Performance Management
Compensation & Benefits
Attendance Management
Leave Management
Benefits Management
Overtime Management
Pay slip Distribution
Time sheet Management
Employee Information/ Skill Management
Grievance Redressal
Employee Survey
Exit Interviews & Process
Health & Safety

Though nowadays in major companies the roles have been revised in the following manner:

a) General
b) Recruitment
c) Training

Also please have a look at the attached document for more details.

Hi Simontiny,

Hope am not late in responding to this query?..

HR generalist or specialist? Seems like a tough question especially on the Cite HR 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 my answer to the query is herewith ;
Hope this helps..
