Hi jyothi,

It is indeed pleasant to know that you are pursuing too many qualifications from various channels. your cv says dat you did dip in mgmt. a course in airlines, MBA from ICFAI and over and above working as a Generalist with an aspiration to grow high which is a very catchy word from your message.

First try to unlearn what you have learnt about your own career progression. It appears you are too confused and missing the beacon light which drives you towards success path.

My advice to you is to get out of confusion and think with fresh mind. Every career in HR is equally important and lucrative. What one need is to have passion for that domain and aspiration and planning to grow in line with his passion. These are the days where one must be w-sure of his/her career progression lest you will remain doing no. of courses without really relishing the tastes of fruits of success.

I wish you all the best and should you have any queries write to me at . Good luck.
