Hi
I have completed my MBA(HR&Marketing)
i want to develop my career in HR... but i did a very big mistake in my MBA.. i had done my major project in Marketing..... after my complition i was searching HR jobs in many concerns... All of them asked the same question , if you want to start your career in HR why did you did your project in marketing?... i was not able to answer them properly
I thought of doing seperate HR courses thats why i did like that but nobody accepted... i dont know to how to solve this... finally i got a HR Recruiter job in one small consultancy and i am continuing more than a year....
now i am totally upset... i am worrying about my career... for the past one year i have the knowledge only in pre recuitment process to be frank its like a tele calling profile...
could you please help me to develop my career... if i studied any additional courses will it be suitable for me?... what are all the courses i can adopt..
Thank you

HI Jansi,
It is quite common in selecting the wrong stream, You develop the knowledge in Core HR by studying the materials. Even in Cite HR you will get lots of information in HR. No need to do any certification course. In interviews tell the fact why you have selected the Major project in Marketing & you try to convince them by you have potential in HR activities and express your skills in Core HR. Surely they will agree for the same.
Learn All the HR activities as much as possible to face any kind of interview in HR

Hi Jansi,
I completely agree with Mr. Jeeva's view. There is no need to do a certification / any special course.
Refresh yourself with the concepts of core HR activities by going through your MBA books & Cite HR.
All the best!

Hi Jansi,
I had faced the similar kind of situation at the startn of my career..I had done my major project in marketing whereas i was looking forward to join HR during my placement..I had to take extra initiatives by learning new things about core hr and going through various books on Human Resources..
Soon after i got through in a core HR dept of a 5 star hotel company.Now am working as a Manager - HR Business Partner in a German based Investment Bank in Bangalore.
So,i would suggest you to learn more about core hr actvities rather than thinking about your past mistakes which i dont think would not hamper your career at all.

Try to do some distance course related to HR which might really give you some in dept knowledge of HR and which might fetch you some good job too, there are lots of course offered in the field of HR so don't feel bad about it. You still have time to start from scratch of HR. Thanks

J:roll:ansi, don't be upset.:no: :p Nothing wrong to expand your thinking and style. The characteristics of a good leader today includes innovation, creativity, vision and supreme interest in all things that surround them.
If your project was in Marketing, so be it. The key is you finished your studies and passed with stellar colors. Be proud of who you are. Nothing wrong with approching your goals and dreams from a different direction then others.
Be well and continue on your fantastic journey.

My advice would be concentrate on the core HR subject and when u face an interview try to tell the interviewer that u have equivalent or more skills of being an Hr person. And in that way i am sure your problem will be solved. Try to use CITE Hr as source of knowledge and i am sure you will excel.

Hi Jansi, I totally agree that there is no better option than to gather knowledge from books and make a nice resume highligting your knowledge of core HR activities.

Dear Jansi
I disagree to people who say that no additional qualification is required.
As a HR Manager will you appoint a person with a different skill than the job he applies for. I am sure your answer is no....
If your keen on doing HR job you must attend additional training/ Workshop.
A nice coming which can aimed at imparting knowledge that is required to perform on day to day basis this December.
The certificate program will be a garnish to your resume...
PRACTICE EVERYTHING THAT EQUIPS YOU TO be a successful HR generalist.
For details call 080 69999354
All the best...
