PHR is a certification provided by HRCI - PHR-SPHR-GPHR Certification. They have all the relevant info on the certification. I did this certification while doing my MS in US.

From my perspective definitely certification would give you a competitive edge and also it shows a commitment towards being a sound HR professional
In India, a Masters degree in HRM is preferred over any other certification but if you are joining a global organization, a PHR would definitely be an added asset to your resume.

An additional qualification on your profile!!

Many US organizations seek candidates with this certification. In my opinion, this certification is not as rigorous as some of the other HR certifications, but provides a good foundation.
One would gain a good theoretical foundation in all of the HR disciplines. Having said that this certification will not guarantee a job; but can give you an edge over other candidates.

Hi
I dont think so that any other certification will help you to get a job. As you are doing MBA it is enough educational qualification for entry level but still there is a scop of learning which can be learnt by experience.
I suggest you to concentrate on you course and complete if successfuly then try for any small orgn or in any recruitment consultancy to gain some enperience. There will be huge opportunity in India once recession over in the new HR dimension-Delivery HR. For which you have to have a good HR processes knowledge which cant be acquired just by a certificate. So go ahead and enjoy your present study...

Hi Rahul,
Well the info provided by you seems pretty useful. I am also thinking of taking up PHR exam in June '09. But am not too sure how useful it will be in Indian scenario provided the fact one has to study about US federal laws etc which may be irrelevant in India.
Can you tell me for how much time did you study for PHR?
Did you study from SHRM study material or from anyother course?
An early response will be highly appreciated.

Shivani,

I gave PHR exam while I was in USA in 2005. I agree that US federal laws may be irrelevant for Corporate India, however this is just one topic out of 6 topics that one has to clear to be a certified professional. Also the multiple choice questions test the psychology of candidates to deal in different situations, they focus more on theoretical and operation aspect of HR.

As I mentioned before certification does not guarantee a job; but it increases one’s professional confidence and set you apart from peers.

I gave 3 weeks time to do the preparation for PHR certification and I used SHRM study material. SHRM has a text book (with a CD) for doing the preparation of PHR that costs around $40.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you need further information, I can be reached at

Good Luck
