Hii Guys!

I'm Mahi, I've 4 Yrs experience in Real Estate, Jaipur. Joined as Executive Admin (in 2005) & after 2 Yrs got Promoted as Asst Manager-HR (in 2007). I was only the person to look after all the HR activities. I started my career with this company when i was in B.sc II yr in 2005. Now I'm pursuing MBA in HR from Symbiosis, Pune(2008-Batch). I'm of 23 yrs only.

I had an experience in Admin & HR.. Due to some family problem i left the job in July 2009. As i was not able to contribute my 100% to the company.

Now i'm mentaly prepare to rejoin some company in the same field (HR). I interviewd in 3-4 Companies, but didnt find suitable location, package,environment, etc.. Finally few days back i've read an advertisement in the news paper, appeared for the interview for the post of "Trainer & Ddeveloper" in an MLM company(Jaipur's First Limited Company).

Now the dilemma is; Management was quite impressed by me, & offered me the post of CEO in the company instead of Trainer & Doveloper.

Now I am in the big Dilemma to what to do, I always wanted to be a part of HRD in any reputed Organization. Although The post of CEO itself has very good Repo, standard, Super Sr. Management Authority, etc..

But.. being a CEO in an MLM company worthwhile in Your Opinion.

Please guys help me out.:confused::unsure::confused:

An amazing story. Someone with just four years' of experience and doing his MBA got an offer of a CEO! What to believe? The offer of CEO to someone who got four year's experience. It sounds very irrational at the onset. CEO's positions are generally attached to companies which got a great worthiness and reputation. Such companies will never look for employees working for real estate business to employ as their CEOs. By the very nature of the job responsibilities, a CEO required to have more than 15 years of credible experience and strong track record of success at top levels of similarly reputed medium/large organizations.
I would advise Mr Mahi to investigate the whole episode, to reaffirm transparency.

Hi Mahi,
Are you al right ,I think you don't know the
real meaning of the CEO, neither the company
I totally agree what Ravi & B.N.Kulkarni said ....
You meant Chief Executive officer ....Can't believed your fascinating story ..

Does it stand for Chief e-scapegoat officer; if it is a ponzi scheme company.... ??
One can write a book later - a James Hadley Chase kind of thriller with a corporate background, from the comfort of one's cell and in illustrious company of greats like "Satyam" Raju !!

when they advertise "trainer & developer" meaning "you need to hire people , train them and developing them to sale their product on a "commission" basis.
when they say you are "CEO" meaning "it is your own company/own fate ,with the people you hire yourself which will all be working on a commision basis".

so they may call it by many names - "ceo/cfo/hr head/trainer..."...it is you to decide finally. Good luck :!::!:

Dear Mahi,

I am not going to talk about the insanity in the situation. So what if you can become the CEO ;-) (Psss: I know a guy who is just out of B.Com and became the CEO of a company because his dad owned it ... in such cases, people find it normal - whereas I find some people like this abnormal)

Get back to your situation now:

Are you interested in working for a MLM company by the way? Are you aware of the process? What benefits has an MLM company got to provide in terms of learning, when it comes to the profile of Training & Development ? A\Hope you collected the required information on that

Now get back to what they offered you:

Hiring is not an easy process, people tend to look at other qualities they have in mind and try fixing the picture and the person (like a jig saw puzzle). Make sure you re-evaluate yourself and see if what they have felt about your profile and assumptions on that makes sense.

I completely agree with Soordass here - because you will be the person who will decide to hire, train and develop network (or introduce strategies to develop the network)

So its like an all-in-all role :-) Nothing wrong in their part.

However - what you need to do is, analyze if this will benefit your career. See wht their long term goals are. Do they have any history of business in their track record to evaluate? Are they legitimate? Does the MLM seem to have any potential of surviving longer? Something reputable like amway (or at least has a strong vision to become like one?)

You need to take a call. Nothing absurd about their offer. YOU need to analyze if this is something YOU can take forward.

Good Luck!

None of the above replied person has given you a positive response that shows there is something fishy about the company you r talking about. The rest is your job if you go with it make sure you be prepaired for what ever comes to your way.
