Dear nsz,

Entering recruitment or any other field for that matter can only be a 'back step' (using your words) if you know what the front steps are. And, if you don't know what the front steps, does it really matter whether you enter recruitment or not?

Go back and read your own post. This is what you wrote:

'I dont have much experience in recruitment and i am not interested also in this field;

Even after writing this line, you are asking seniors whether you should enter recruitment? Don't do it mate! You will be miserable!

To me, it appears as though your peer group is influencing you towards recruitment (much against your own wishes). So, my question to you is:

Are you going to do what your peers suggest, or, will you do what you really want for yourself?

Answer this question with brutal honesty and your dilemma about entering recruitment or not will be solved in less than half a second.

Answer this question while lying to yourself about what you want in your life, and you will be in one dilemma after another - for your whole life - guaranteed!

So, in a nutshell, it doesn't matter whether the seniors here think you should go into recruitment or not. The matter of fact is WHAT DO YOU WANT?

Hello nsz,
When you want to chose a career step, do something or anything where YOU WILL BE SATISFIED & HAPPY--be it Recruitment or just selling peanuts.....pun intended.
If you don't love what you do, like Gaurav Sareen mentioned, that's the sure-shot recipe for disaster & making your life & of those around you miserable.
I recollect a case [not related to HR but to the general concept] of a person who wasn't interested in becoming a medical doctor, but had to join MBBS just due to peer/family pressure. Later on he took 9 yrs to complete the 5 yr course & even after joining a job [thanks to some connections], his reputation as a doctor was such that even the nurses & compounders were able to give better prescriptions than him.
Maybe you are cut-out for something else--do some thinking about your strengths & weaknesses [basically a SWOT analysis] very honestly--I am sure you will get clarity as to which direction your career should be heading towards.

thanks for the valuable suggestions....but at this moment I am getting job in only recruitment..and somewhere I have to start.I think I made mistake by joining those two companies...can any one help me in getting job in HR generalist profile or any other aspect of HR apart from recruitment..
here I am enclosing my resume kindly go through it and plz let me know about the vacancy in HR in Pune. Plz as I need job urgently.
Hello nsz,
I repeat what I mentioned earlier:
"do some thinking about your strengths & weaknesses [basically a SWOT analysis] very honestly--I am sure you will get clarity as to which direction your career should be heading towards."
I get a feeling that you are confused & mixing-up things. Even though you mentioned that you DON'T want to get into recruitment, you have not mentioned WHY. Maybe you took that decision for the WRONG reasons? Just think about it & post your thoughts.
Maybe then the members can give more focused & appropriate guidance/advice.

seniors i have got a chance to join a company named as SK infotech, pune as an HR .....do any one of you have an idea how this company is?
Hello nsz,
Suggest FIRST make the best use of the internet before asking for DIRECT experience/feedback from the Forum.
Here's a link that I got--since the e-mail ID is mentioned, you can check it out with someone who worked there FIRST-HAND.
