hey, as per my opinion u should go 4 genaralist role in the civil project report........but consider the comparison of both company......

both companies are at the stage of growth... whch is the better industry for career purpose, is it ERP solutions or project management

It purely depends on nature of company , working atmosphere & HR Set up / Internal Systems.
IF you think the above factors is more or less similar with both companies , evaluate within, which profile will suit you more, will give more exposure and opportunity to learn and achieve your career objective.
As a generalist you will learn about the end to end process of HR and get exposed to entire spectrum of activities.
As a IT Recruiter / Admin you will confine yourself to a small part of HR process. As a recruiter you will be sourcing the resumes from the job portals, tele calling and fixing the interviews.
If the civil services project company offers you a better pay & better workplace, don hesitate go ahead with it .

as a generalist you ll have to put your hands on recruitment, training and development, payroll admin... n all sorts... if u r willing to play this multiple role just go ahead with that... or if u want to make your career profile very specialized opt recruitment..

An oportunity int oHR generalist role is not so easy when compared t oa recruiter role. But, to excel in HR Generalist role, one should be competent enough to analyse and execute all the situations that might arise during the due course.
It paves way towards the overall exposure and to be in the deciding role.
So if you are passionate towards it, then just go ahead else.. think about recruitments.

Hi well I agree with Yaasmin but one more thing i wanna tell you that you need to understand what you want and also, as you said that you got a job as a HR Generalist, guess you know the scope, value and area of HR and well familiar with the functions of HR thn why you wanna go with this IT sector or say IT recruiter job where you will not find too much scope and career oprotunities like you can get with Non-IT jobs..See if you really wanna go with Core HR and not wanna go with only recruitment and so on, you must not go with this IT recruiter/ERP Admin job.

You must understand that HRM is a major management activity, while the HRD is a profession which includes broader range of activities to develop personnel inside of organizations and the most importantly these activities are almost same wherever you go with any industry whether the Garment Export, Auto/Manufacturing/ IT and EPC and your work remain the same but yes the environment/nature of work of Industry are different thn others. Let me tell you one more thing that you will find more scope, better career options and a strong knowledge of HR by going with this HR Generalist job.

And about Admin job or ERP, there is no need to go with it and, you may go for the SAP-HR course which will enhance your HR skill and give you more and more to develop your career and towards goals...

Just bcz of one or two things or they posbly are offering you a great package, i dont think it is good to change and also with this HR, one need to have strong knowledge of the function and good experience as i mentioned above which you can have by going with this HR Generalish Job only.

Best of Luck

See if you can take something from my experience.. After finishing full time MBA in 2009, I joined a small ITES co as HR generalist in Chennai for a very basic pay. Now with 13 months of experience, I'm looking for a change & attended many interviews. What i found out is
1) One will have a higher pay package in a recruitment profile than a generalist profile in a 1-3 year time frame (especially if start off with a small -mid sized co)
2) U will learn a little bit of everything in HR Generalist profile, but if the attrition is higher in your co, then most probably you will be focusing on recruitment.
3) When you attend interviews in 1-2 years for any HR profile, you will be competing with 3 types: candidates who are generalist like you, specialists in a particular domain, internal job posting within the co from recruitment to generalist role.

The two options in front of you is:
1) Join as a recruiter, earn good money, shift to a well established co with 2-3 years of experience where if you are lucky, will get placed in a generalist role through job transfer in some future date, or if not, will be promoted to lead recruitment & to recruitment manager(based on performance, of course). Opt for this if you want to get settled in life quickly.
2) Join as a HR generalist, gain 2-3 years experience, while keep updating your HR knowledge.. The path of a HR generalist is slow but steady.. so dont expect any quick fixes.

Choose wisely.. All the best & of course, keep us updated :)
