Hi all
I have got offer from a premium Scheduled bank as "Specialist Officer HR" scale I - pay around 13000-15000 Rs /month.
At present i'm receiving more than this , and am working in the field of Training & development. My interests are also in T&D
But my family and friends tell me to accept the offer , coz this is a prestigious offer from an old generation bank and it is better than the present one ..
but i came to know that the minimum period for a promotion is around 5 years in the bank...
please help me choose the right option.... i would like to know the career prospects of "Specialist Officer HR" and the kind of duties i may have to do?
My husband tells me to join and work for a few years and then if u are not interested u can quit ... But in that case i'm worried that i would be out of the T&D field and if in future i want to come back.. it would be difficult...What do you say??
please help me

Hi cvadhana,
Choosing a right kind of career entirely depends on your attitude and next aptitude. Specialist Officer-HR in a bank is not a bad proposition at all and financial sector is going through a boom now a days. As far as your job security and comfort are concerned you can opt for the bank job without any second thought. If you want to build your career and your life ambition is to become a Head of T&D in an MNC one day, you can do that keeping in mind how you can get yourself prepared to reach that position with holistic approach and dedication. It all depends on you and your enthusiasm. Think twice and take a wise decision which ultimately keeps you and your family happy and contented.

Hi CV,
This decision has to be made by you irrespective of the comments by me & Pradeep..however we would just share our perspectives.. :D
Your present brief profile as we understand-
* you are married
* Working in Govt Deptt with exposure in T & D
* You must be around 25- 28 years..
Desire :- To become a Trainer
Present option : Specialist Officer - HR in a scheduled bank..
Since we do not know the job profile as such..it is assumed that it would be a generalist one..
To be a successful trainer, one must have hard core line experience say sales , procureement , HR etc..then leverage your experience to gain credibility n add value in the training imparted to the participants...look around the profiles of the successful trainers..rather than just parroting the points from PPTs is not what makes one a successful trainer..
As i said..it is not right to influence your decision..but you have think it out well from your perspectives & your SWOT and your Goals.
Best wishes,
Rajat Joshi

Hi Vadhana

If the assignment is going to offer you an elevation atleast once in 5 yrs. It is good. As you may appreciate, Banking sector is progressing by leaps and bound and marching towards a complete "Officer-Oriented" Company, many old timers & freshers have bright opportunities to sharpen their skills and lot of transformation will take place. Your real role as a T&D specialist shall by default bestows on you a special responsibility to face this challenge of "Organisational Transformation" wherein your expertise will directly reflect on OD. AS I believe in Banks, there will be Staff Training Colleges everywhere and your T&D expertise can mould many budding start to reach heights in their career path. Being a Faculty in STC is a wonderful opportunity. Though immediately it may not happen with you, in due course of time, you can impress upon Bank Mgmt. to give you a shift to T&D thus posting U in STCs. I strongly suggest you to take up this assignment which as a Lady is not only comfortable for you but also it will help you in meeting the Org. goals too at the hour of need.
