Hi swati
Inconsistent profile is a problem.
I think it's not easy coming back from training to a corporate job.
I for one would hesitate to take such a candidate. If he leaves after few months as he finds corporate role too constricting after freedom of a teaching or training roll, my time and efforts would be wasted. In the circumstance, I would prefer a person currently in corporate job other things being equal.
If however, I had to compare with candidates with lesser qualification / skillset AND lesser experiance, then definitely I would consider the switcher. However, in such a case also, I think I would hesitate. If I can make do with the alternate candidates (depending on job requirements), I will still prefer the alternates.
Mond you, this is still hypothetical as I have not come across such a case.however, I have seen such problems with change from consulting to corporate roles

Thank you very much S.K Johri and saswatabanerjee for your opinion.
A question to saswatabanerjee, that if a person has opted the teaching after getting experience of two years in corporate and then making mind to switch in to corporate as corporate trainer after gaining five year experience in teaching then still would you hesistate in taking his/her facility in training and development??
Looking forward to your reply.
Thanks and Regards,

Hi Swati,
Personally, i would definitely still hesitate.
Mostly because of the fact that a person who has been working in training, basically on his own, has a lot of freedom and from there to return to a disciplined corporate structure is difficult. There are some who return as they want the structure and discipline again. Or they return because they are a failure in training (though they may pretend to be otherwise).
True there are probably some i am missing due to my assumptions and prejudices. But i would prefer that to a risk of taking someone who does not fit in and leaves very soon upsetting my work plans........
Mind you, this is my opinion, may not be what other recruiters followed.
