Dear Members,
I heard about this forum from my friend Krishna,
I am M.A(English),MBA(HR) both in regular mode and presently working with an Engineering college as a lecture(English) for more than 10k salary p.m. Now I have got an opportunity in a company (Paper Industry) an an HR with only 8k p.m . Please suggest me whether to take up this offer or not.
Waiting for your reply,
Thanks and Regards

Hi Kishore
I will suggest you to opt for paper industry. You are getting in Corporate world.Thi stime you are getting lesser than present but according to your experience you will get more, both in terms of money or sucess.
So as per my opinion just go ahed for Paper industry................
Rest all as your hurt says.............
Hey Kishore,
Do the job which you feel will be emotionally and mentally rewarding first! Money will come later!
Ask yourself.....10 years down the line will you regret the decision you take now? (whichever the decision) Write down the regret if you take either decisions. Compare them.
Ask yourself.....10 years down the line what will be reasons for happiness based on the decision you take now? (whichever the decision) Write down the reasonsif you take either decisions. Compare them.
take your call!
regards

Hi Kishore,
My suggestion is you could continue in your Lecture line since once you finished your MPhill and Ph.D you will get good package and lot of leaves in a year. In corporate world you have to face all type of politics in all departments.
So, think twice before taking decision.
All the best.

Hi. Kishore.
I totally agree with swaminathan. Continue with the old job. Being a hr by profession definetly i suggest you to take up hr as a career but as swaminathan said you should be mentally prepared to tackle politics in the organisation in different depts. A tree when it is small if u want to give anyshape u can give but when it become huge and if u try to give a new shape it breaksdown.
high regards.

Hello Kishore,
I would suggest you to first Instead of asking others ask youself what u want to do? Where you see yourself after ten years? Which field intrests you? Coz for Corporate & Education sectors we need all together different skill sets, dedication. I knw that u will have huge exposure in corporate but educational field is also full of oppurtunities.
As u have not mentioned for hw long u r teaching its difficult to say abt ur experience. Coz that also matters a lot.
Now its ur career nd its in ur hand to decide...So first do some self assessment & analysis and then decide.
Best of Luck
Hello Kishore,
I agree with other experts comments. Continue with your position as professor and in due course I would strongly recommend that you shift your teaching from English to HR.
You should seriuosly take-up a part-time position as placement officer or take up resonsibility in your exiting Colleage as Placement Officer for your new graduates. This will give you an opening to interact with companies and know what happening in the market with regard to the market requirements and the salary trends.
Keep your self upto date with all that is happening in HR world not only theory but pratical HR Administration and operations.
All the best.

Hi Kishore,
I strongly endorse Mr. U K Mitra's advice. Don't leave the present respectable job and that too at a lower remuneration. Had there been an offer between 15K to 20K from that industry that would have been more appropriate and considerable.

Moreover, paper industry is not a progressive industry. Just try to check about all the paper companies, only a very few are profitable companies.

Further, had you got that offer from some very reputed and progressive company or some MNC that would have been much preferable even for 8K.

Rest depends upon your own discretion if you don't have any job satisfaction in the present position. But still I would like to advise you to wait for some better opportunity than the present offer from paper industry.

In the meanwhile, if you have some flair for writing and you want some part time offers, you may like to contact [thesismasters@gmail.com] with your CV for some writing jobs at your spare time to do from your home only.

Hi Kishore,
I read that, if you love what you are doing, then you won’t feel that you are working. You need to understand what you love doing most - Teaching or being an HR. There should have been a reason why you choose to study HR. If HR was your passion, believe me, you should be diving, head first. Remember that opportunities are not lost, they get picked by someone.
I can understand your situation and how you feel. Having a job & job satisfaction are entirely two different things. Trust me - they indeed are! So ask yourself - Are you satisfied at giving your best or are the best yet to come? Make sure where your passion lies, move towards it, no matter what the circumstances are, you'll win.
Regards
Chandrahasan
