Respected Cite HR Members,

I need one advice. I've 9+ yrs. of exp. in typesetting Industries and have played various roles like Executive Operations, Team Leader (Operations), Sr. Executive HR (Talent Engagement & Retention) & Project Manager for UK & US clients.

Now I am working in a very small and starting typesetting company as a Project Manager for past 2.5 yrs. I did B.Sc. in 1999 and now pursuing Distance MBA (HR) from Pondicherry University (2010-2012).

I am not at all happy with my current job/job profile because there is no learning and it is very monotonous. As it is a new co. I waited for 2.5 years but now it seems that I am wasting my time and missing something.

I am very much interested in HR profile as I enjoyed my one year period of Sr. Executive HR (Talent Engagement & Retention) because I learned a lot about HR and enjoyed being a part of all activities done by HR.

But as you see my tenure in HR is just one year and max. 8+ yrs. tenure is in operations and Project Management.

Please suggest me which field I should choose now for a better future? I would love to go for HR profile but I don't think I'll get a salary which I am drawing now (30K in hand) and I don't want to compromise with that.

Do I need career counseling. Am I thinking too much? Or, Do I need to wait more in this current co.?

I do appreciate you that you have discovered that your strength lies as a human resource professional.This is self is an amazing feat of self discovery.
Since you want to pursue you future career in the field of Hr you might have to compromise a bit esp. when it comes to your salary part. Unless and until some one actually see you potential of people handling & management skills and gives you a decent position in the HR dept. which will ensure you that kind of pay package.
So its more of who is willing to take that risk of hiring you as a HR professional and give you a managerial role which will ensure that kind of salary
You actually compromise on your salary and sacrifice for just a few years . This will prove good in the long run as it will help to jump start your career in HR
I hope i was of help. Wish you all the best in all the endeavors that life has to offer

Dear Mr. Mishra,

I hink you can find some company which can aquire your both talent, then salary part will be contraint or same or may increase.

I mid level constructions company can do this, but depends on our reach and job availibility with them.

In my veiw Operations is such a filed wich is different and unique in every company, there is very very less competiotion with operations field.

You are a technical person, please do not put yourself in to non technical person stream.

Now a days in HR there are very tough competion.

I am doing MBA, but i opted for Operations as major instead of HR though I have 90% knowledge of Hr and worked as admin manager in pvt letd firm looking after Office mngmt, HR & Complaince part.

I am not demotivating you but Technical Person is more demanded in the market rather than non technical person.

Try to find out job in similar industry with other companies.

Or if you are passionate about being HR, think about your competencies about solving peoples problem instead of punishing them, as we have discussed alot in cite hr about HR taking strict actions against employeeds, then compromise with the salary and initial status and begin with the career but with your competencies and managing power you can also step the ladder as soon as possible in HR also.

Dear Mr. Mishra
In my opinion Yasmin is right. There is lots of demand of non-technical person in market. Try to find out a job in ur field in a better company.
as u r passionate about HR, u can do it as on part time like consultancies & training & development & it will generate revenue too
rest is upto seniors........
best of luck
