I am Neha from Delhi and am currently employed with an IT company in Hyderabad. I have completed my Masters with a specialisation in HR.
My profile here is in training - Facilitation. However i am not into developing training modules, just their facilitation. As i have joined this place through a campus interview, i necessarily have to spent some time here in this organisation. I feel i am not doing justice to my Qualification with this profile.
Please suggest how i can enhance my skill set here in terms of additional qualifications. Also what role should i attempt to get into one year henceforth.
Would my current profile have any value vis-e-vie my qualification in the industry one year henceforth? What options shall be available to me?

Hi Neha,
You are still at the beginning of your career. You should not be so much worried about your job profile or role. A training facilitation role is not a bad place to start with.
One year henceforth, you can project yourself in an actual HR Trainer or Training Designer role. Additionally, you can always get yourself involved in other areas of HR indirectly by talking to your colleagues and getting to know how they work.
It normally takes 2-3 years before you can visualize yourself in a particular mould, so give it some time. For now, you should try and learn everything there is about your present role and also the larger areas associated with the role and how you can slow transition from the present role to new areas of working.

Neha,
The other thing you can do is take some time and think about the various roles that are available in HR and which area interests you most. You can also consider whether you wish to be an HR generalist or an HR specialist in a particular area.
Once you have thought it over, you can start working towards that goal by learning new things and acquiring new skills.

Dear Gurang,
Thank you for a response,However there are things i would want to still get clarity on.
What you said makes sense,however i know that i want to get into the strategising process.
Facilitation is not something i want to get into at this point of time...However please tel me should i take up any additional qualification with this?
Would a Masters in Labour Laws be beneficial in context of this industry or should i take up a 10 month ERP program simultaneously?
It gets so confusing at times.I thought i knew where i wanted to be but somehow i feel things are not falling into place
Hi Neha,
If you are interested in the strategising field, you can definitely start working on it simultaneously while fulfilling your duties of training facilitation.
As for additional qualification... a course in ERP would be much more useful if you are looking to pursue a career in the IT sector. It is also becoming much more in demand in other sectors.
Master of Labour Laws is a bit out of fashion at the moment... you can get all the knowledge you require about labour laws by reading books and from the Cite HR forum. Better would be a Master's in HRM or something on those lines.
Hope that helps you out.

Hi Neha,
I am simply amused to find you in a fix just at the start of your job. i think first you should focus on your present job."coordination" and "communication" are the cornerstone of your present assignment.focus on it. learn from your mistakes.try to be perfectionist. how did you arrive at this choice of getting into the /jobtasks of 'strategist". i suggect you talk with yourself. what is your innermost desire? what are your inclinations ?do SWOT ANALYSIS. ASSESS your personality and your mind.what is its make up. is this make of mind suitable for that job? this needs honest self assessment. do not think of future when present has not been perfected.of course, planning is an essential aspect. this needs knowledge of self.keep reading books on 'theories on strategies","labour laws", 'trg. & development" etc. this would allow you self assessment in totality. then decide after two/three years.
Hi Neha
I am really thrilled with the overwhelming responses you have been getting from our friends whic exhibits their concern towards other professionals.

Ofcourse, I fully endorse what our other friends said about the solution to your problem.
