Hello People I m graduate via correspondence n have more than 2 yrs exp in HR. Wants to go for for further studies, but I m confused wat should I do. Help me soon.
What is your basic discipline?
When did you pass out your graduation albeit through a correspondence course? From which institute did you do this course?
Is your total work experience TWO years and all of that in HR?
How old are you to be able to undertake a full scale post-graduation qualification?
Would you wish to do again only a correspondence course or would like to go to a class room?
I know that these are too many questions I have raised!!!
But to answer your core question, one needs to know a little about you.
If you do not wish to share your information on the board you could always resort to a "private message" facility of the board, but if replies to your question are made public, there is a chance that some others may also benefit!
Kindly decide for yourself and respond.

Hi I did B Com from DU in 2005 through correspondence. I hav more than 2 yrs exp in HR, m keen to pursue further studies in HR related field (full time). Waiting for an early reply.

In your original mail, you were unclear as to "what" you should persue after graduation (though you have two years HR experience). Now I understand that you are keen on taking up HR for further education as perhaps you would like to make a career in HR.

If my understanding is even fairly correct, you must acquire a formal qualification in HR by doing a full time course from a reputable institute (that may also offer final placement as you complete the course.)

I am presuming that you can do a full time course (time commitment wise-I mean!) If there are difficulties about doing a full time course, then you might continue a career in HR and simultaneously persue the very valuable diploma in Training & Development from ISTD which will give comprehensive inputs in HR better than most and by correspondence though there may be no placements.

But you can get a lot more help locally from Archana who as I understand is very knowledgeable in these areas and very generous in helping. She is a valuable contributor of this board and it is better that she guides you.

(Archana, sorry I am making work for you, but what I understand from your participation is that you would be happy to help. Sorry for encroching in your time and priorities!)

Kalindi, HR is a fascinating field. The more you study, the more there is to study!! Dealing with fluid, dynamic situations involving emotions, biases and genuine responses is challenging, thrilling and very satisfying as you are almost always unsure to distinguish the real from the pretence-at individual as also at collective level.

If your decision is a well thought out decision, you have chosen to live a life full of excitement! Good Luck for your journey!

I m really very thankful that u hav respond to my query.
M nt very good in studies, so w'ont b able to prepare myself for CAT as time is also very short. I think MAT will help me. But dnt know how to prepare for MAT, from whr to get coaching. IMS is not preparing for MAT. Again need ur help.
I hav search for ISTD, really good.

Search for "Archanahr" in members' profile and send her a private message. She functions as as "Consultant and Trainer".
Generally in the knowledge management section you will invariably find her!
I am sure either of will find the other!
Good luck for the search!

Hi Kalind,
if you want to really pursue your career in HR. I advise, that it is a very career option. HR has wide spectrum and at present more than IT, HR and its core activities were given more importance. as far as studies is concerned, you have a course called MA ( Social Work) offered by the national institute of personnel management. 2 yrs course and covers all the HR and personnel functions thoroughly. rest you have many PG diplomas, MBA (HR) and many specialisation course. any way it is not course is going to give more validity, as far as HR is concerned , it is only how you handly people / man management is more important. so apart from studies, move with many peoples, interact, discuss, try to become a member in some professional HR centers and cultivate HR paraphernelias.
