HERE ARE SOME USEFUL THOUGHTS.

CAREER CHANGE

Based on your brief,

The gap of 2 years should not be a big worry.

You can always explain and play it down.

Definitely some interviewers would ask about it, more out of

curiosity than anything else. You must be prepared to answer

it and not avoid it.

Based on your technical qualifications and experience,

your competences could be outlined as

TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE

-computer literacy

-familiarity with software

-knowledge of harware/ software

-knowledge of systems in general

-quantitative reasoning

-attention to details

SOLUTION ORIENTATION

-problem solving

-adaptability

-flexibility

-making judgement

-making decision

-critical / analtyical thinking

COMMUNICATION SKILLS

-oral communication

-written communication

PERSONAL ABILITIES

-endurance

-initiative

-self reliance

-continuous learning

-training/ coaching

-achievment motivation

It is possible some of these competences more matured than others.

Your commercial experience in total is just over 2 years covering

-HRIS

-recruitment

-administration

etc.

YOU STILL HAVE TO COMPLETE PGCHRM.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With this background, you want to move into RESEARCH HRM.

You can cover a number of areas , as listed below/ more.

But this is subject to your aptitude, your passion, available

opportunities, etc.

Also you should remember that nobody in their right mind

want to do just research--they want also to implement

the research findings.

HENCE YOU MUST ALSO DEVELOP THE SKILLS

-TO PLAN THE SOLUTION TO THE FINDINGS

-TO IMPLEMENT THE PLANNING.

SO THE REAL SCOPE LIES IN RESEARCHING/

IMPLEMENTATION PLANNING.

Vision & HR Strategy Development

HR STRATEGIC planning

HR planning

Manpower planning

HR AUDITING

Change Management

Executive and Leadership Development

Organization Culture Assessment & Development

Innovation and Creativity Practices

HRIS

Communication, Influence, and Conflict Resolution Skills

Employee Development & Coaching

Performance Management

Career Planning /Management

Process Management/Improvement

Development of Self-Directed/Shared Leadership Teams

Meeting Effectiveness & Group Facilitation

Goal Setting

Team Building/ Development

Organization restructuring

Group Problem Solving

ETC ETC ETC

In career planning, you have to place your position/ role,

not just as researcher of HR, but what HR can do to the

organization, solution provider in collaborative

development of

-organization direction

-organization culture

-organization development

-continuous improvement

etc

and help the organization to meet the changing needs

of the BUSINESS.[ example could COST EFFECTIVENESS]

The kind of career , you are seeking , are limited in numbers.

Put some more experience on the current job/ complete the

course and try to do/learn more in your current job [ beyond

the call of duty] It will pay off in the future.

Then you should seek position with organizations like

*CENTRE OF OD DEVELOPMENT [ Hyderabad]

*TIFR [ mumbai]

*PRICEWATERHOUSE

*ANY MAJOR CONSULTING HOUSE

*LARGE ORGANIZATION LIKE [ HLL, ITC etc]

A FEW YEARS WITH THEM, THEN YOU CAN START

YOUR OWN CONSULTANCY / WRITE YOUR OWN CHEQUE.

HOPE THIS IS USEFUL TO YOU
