HI Ajmal,
Sorry for the delay in responding. Thanx for the valuable information you have given.
Currently, as i have mentioned, am having 9 months of experience into recruitments. So considering that I am a baby in this industry.
Recently I have felt that i am more interested into the people part of my work, i mean interacting with them, gaining knowledge from everyone in every possible ways. But i am not comfortable doing recruitments.
I am in a dilemma, cas i am very much interested in making a career in HR, but no idea as to what else can i do, if not recruitments.
Plz do guide me, cas i feel frustrated as i am not happy the way my work is going on.
Thanks & regards

I think that Recruitment involves maximum people skills. You come to know about lots of people while you are on recruitment / interviewing.
If interviewing / recruiting is what you don't like than reconsider the job profile... because in HR you need to continuously be involved with the interviewing process.
At times for
1. Recruiting Interviews
2. Appraisal Interviews
3. Exit Interviews
4. Transfer Interviews
In case you seriously don't like the interviewing process, than think about career in Administration department, cause in future if you plan to move back to the main HR stream, it would be comparatively [repeat: comparatively] easier for you to move back.

Hey Ajmal,
I am involved only in the initial part of recruitment, i.e. I just screen shortlist the professionals' cv, schedule them for process at clients place & then do follow ups. No interviewing involved :-(
Can u suggest some tips to make my current work interesting

Thanks & Regards

From this i guess, that you have less than 1 year of experience in HR..
I believe that your management thinks that you require some more experience and exposure before they can hand you some more responsibilities.
In that case all you should do is try and give your best to the job you have been assigned. Further, try to fill in for other colleagues specially when they are absent or behind schedule. This will not only give extra exposure to the job, but the higher ups would come to know that you can and would do a lot more.
Maybe that would bring you on good records of the senior management but in either case it would give you sufficient exposure to the HR to move up the ladder and get involved in work that you want to do.
