hi balaji,
1st of all, i absolutely disagree with RSK that coz of looks female HR's are appointed. Why males dont have any looks or what????
I guess HR people need lots of patience & males dont have that as compared to women. HR is a thankless job. Even if you do all the possible things for employees to solve their problems, still they think that HR doent do anythg. From my side I just want to give u advice that if you r interested in HR than just go ahead, if you are capable enough you will get a good job. One more thing, plz go for a good institute, before taking admission, do a proper research about teaching quality, placements etc, coz too many of colleges are coming up these days saying "we provide 100% placements"
All the Best & be positive

While I agree with Anshu, I would also like to mention that a few jobs have requisites that they prefer male only or femal only. However the scenario is changing. It was a concept of the past (or a perceived thought?) that HR is only for female members.

However - please note that in during MBA or any other HR related courses, you can see a lot of girls taking up HR as an elective or subjetc and very rarely you get to see a mass of men (compared to marketing). Reason is - they prefer money - strong marketing skills earns you a good package. Since a man is the main earning person in a family he obviously prefers the one that pays well for his effort. But I am sure you will agree that the scenario is changing now - women are also taking up marketing assignments now.

In the same way - now even men are starting to like the concept of HR so you can see a change starting from the course people are chosing to take.

Its the preference that takes you to what you want to be. Had I preferred finance over HR and done really good with a lot of passion and need to excel ion finance field - I would have been elsewhere this day, and probably on a finance forum at this hour of the night.

And lets not forget that certian position requires female candidates, wheras certain HR role requires male members.

Have you seen a "Female" security guard? I have not yet - but my boss was telling me that in one company he visited in Hyderabad (I guess its hyderabad) - there was a female security guard, who was also the receptionist. She was in Saree - and when the need arised to stand outside, she used to wear a black coat on the saree. They were trained personnels from Nepal. Brilliant idea though..must say.

Hi Balaji ,

I am not sure as to how you have derived this assumption of having noticed very few men as HR professionals . I myself work for an ITES company in which most of our top HR officials are men and they have been extremely sucessful in their profession so far!!!

The thought that HR professionals whether men or women do not have a bright future or earn good packages is a very primitive thought . We have been and have already progressed into an era where HR function has a very strategic role to play in the business.

And when it comes to choosing HR as your profession , it all boils down to your interest levels on the subject . you must decide for yourself as to what aspect of this profession appeals you and why ? HR is definitely a profession for people who have a wide spectrum of thought process , patience and commitment.

The HR function these days is very vast and you have different portfolios that you can play . You can create your own expertise on areas like benefits administration , Statutory Compliances , HR Operations specialist etc .

Hope my reply comes of some use to you .

Warm Regards,

u r right but female hr can work only ITES & Hospitality sector because of their glamour feild.
but in factory sector you will get male HR beacause of that they have to handle more no. of not highly qualified male workers ,union etc.

Hi Balaji,
Ofcourse in IT industry we can see female HR are more but in non IT only male HR's are dominating. In non IT industry females can't handle the entire role. Even in IT industry The top positions in HR are dominated by Male even females are there but comparatively less.

I do agree with Ash. in Gurgaon there are many companies have female secutiry guards but that is to check females only.
Anshu rightly said that females have more patience in compare to males. actually it the type of business demands male or female as HR.
