Dear all,

I have 2 Questions.

I have completed my MMS (HR: Specialization) this year with distinction. But i am unable to find a suitable job. I am a Fresher in Hr Domain. I have my account with,, Timesjob, and many more. Usually the offers i get through this portals are related to sales jobs, customer care jobs and even recruiters job where the qualification requirement is Graduate or Under graduate.

Q.1) Being post graduate, should i go for recruiters jobs where they require graduates and under graduated. Should i atleast start with this, coz this will help me to understand the basic function of HR?

Q.2) I am not satisfied with the offers that comes thru job portals. And i have heard that ths job site provide better benefits only to thos who opt for the paid services. IS it true?? Should i opt for the paid services to pull in better offers??

You can answer any of the question u r comfortable with and think that will help me to fight ths situation.

Thanks dear friends for ur valuable guidance!!!!

Hello Anuja,

That's life--unfortunately.

Quite different from the student-days--now you must be realising why most of the working people--me included--really cherish the student days!!!

Coming to your queries, FIRST & FOREMOST decide what your priority/priorities are. If you make a small analysis, you will be surprised to find how many professionals--even in this Forum--are working as per their qualification(s). Not a very high percentage, I would say. Now that is not to say that one shouldn't aspire for such a role--which is where your personal priorities come into the picture.

And coming to your thought that jobs meant for graduate/under-graduates don't suit you, the sooner you change your mindset the better. I can vouch for the fact that there are many role-models all over the world who aren't qualified at all--and I don't mean just Bill Gates or Dhirubhai Ambani.

Look @ your case this way Anuja--you are qualified in HR. Isn't Recruitment a part of HR? Then why did you leave recruiter openings when they were offered to you? Pl note that understanding, assimilating & analysing the human nature followed by learning to apply those skills is a VERY IMPORTANT part of HR function. and it's ONLY in Recruitment that one gets to learn these skills [not in Core HR], since this function needs to interact with a whole lot of humans, both within & outside the organisation.

I am not sure what you mean by "am not satisfied with the offers that comes thru job portals". Satisfaction is always a personal quotient that varies from person-to-person AND ALSO from situation-to-situation for the same person. First of all, YOU need to be clear of what you want followed by a thought process of enquiry if what you want matches with your core competencies--which decides what you deserve. Only then can you work towards getting what your focus is on.

Also look @ your situation this way: had you chosen among the available openings, wouldn't you have gathered at least some experience by now? More gap between your degree-passing & the time of your joining your first job, the more your frustration AND a situation where you need think of how to show the gap when you update your resume after a year.

I don't mean to discourage you, but at the same time, you also need to begin to live in the real world with all the limitations & gaps between our aspirations & the available opportunities.

In a single line: Life is a trade-off. The only choice we have is to choose between what & what.
