I am an MBA with 2 yrs of experince. I was working in an MNC IT Company as recruiter [ On Contract]... and very recently I moved from IT to Retail with good hike on my CTC..... Now I am part of a leading retail chain.

My current role is Core HR Function [Generalist] and on roll of the company.

Now I am confused about my decision, was it a right decision by moving from IT to this domain and what will be my future. Will I be stuck to same company or will I get chance again to work in IT or in MNC or Bigger Corporates.

What do you guys think about this? please suggest as I am in dilemma about my choice.

Waiting for advice

To be a complete HR Professional you should never be industry specific
or domain specific.
As you improve as a HR Professional you should also move across the industies
and also across the verticals to have the complete growth.
This will add value since you understand the business and the larger picture
and will be possible for you to connect with the core HR activities and strategies.

hi hr 99,
if u have noticed an hr head of any company or i must say of mostly all companies will be a person who has over all hr knowledge i mean all spheres n areas, doin alone recruitment wil not benefit u in the long run i'l tel me u y cos u'l never find any company creatin headof recruitments, training etc... u'l find only head of hr havin hands on full knowledge pertainin to everythin , i think u have done absolutely the rite thing n iam sure everybody wil agree to u, as far as sectors are concerned only fmcg n to a certain extend telecom sector are sector specific but in hr if the person has crediable track record they are welcomed with open arms... all the best

As you have already joined the new company please dont think a lot about the decision that you have made, recruitment is just a part of HR, this new role of an HR Generalist will surely help in your Career growth. If you worry about the decision that you have currently made then you will not be able to perform well in the new organisation, so be positive and take it up as a challenge.
All the Best

Never restrict HR to any specific Industry. The HR practises have a very huge canvas, which goes beyond industry. It is extremely important to build up competencies, in depth knowledge and most important to use intelligence to align with the business goals and objectives. These are the attributes which holds goods in any industry. This simple tips may be useful in our professional career.
