Hi HR seniors
My boss approached me regarding one head of the company that we subcontracted to do some job for us. He was complaining that he [head subcontractor] has unbearable ordor so much that they cant seat in meetings. He is asking for advise on how to diplomatically tell the head of subcontracting company about his unbearable ordor so that he can do something about it.
These are some of the personal matters that must be handled with caution so i need your advise.
Thank you in advance for your help.

I also have a question for you, i am intelligent and hardworking but dont know why at the time of face to face interaction with some senior i loose my confidence level, being a dedicated employee i become blank or ineffective at the time of presentation, how to overcome this, i m zero in self marketing also speak less.
Please help

Hi Meenu,

Thanks for the compliment.i would like to bring to your notice that even am a fresher in HR career, my idea of sharing my thoughts here is to improve my skills and this way it will help the communication level.To answer your question, firstly let me know are you a fresher in the career.?if yes then it should not be a problem for anyone at the nascent stage of the career to have tension or zero confidence level.but incase you are experienced then it really needs to be given a thought.

As far as my approach is concerned,speaking in lay man terms , self introspect on why are you afraid/tensed seeing the Senior. Is his eyes so terrific ? or his face so scary? If his face is the concern then stare at his eyes and answer him( you may be right or wrong). intially you will need lot of effort to do that.Face it.Afterall he is a Senior person and has reached that place only after he has crossed a junior position like ours.Said and done , its always easy to give away advises.

Hope this Helps.

Dear Meenu

As a matter of fact, that the condition of majority of us. We are very good in advising to others and we can take good classes for others. But when the same is for us then we are getting panic and nervous and unable to tackle even some simple issues. To come out such situations you must start developing self confidence. Daily morning you must tell to your mind with little louder voice. "Meenu you are great, Meenu you are born to achieve, Meenu you are so beautiful, Meenu you can do any work which have been dropped by others and the difficult tasks very easily, Meenu Today you have to do these all are the work. (i)................. (ii)............ (iii)................

First and foremost : Note down all the work whatever is pending.

Strike those completed task immediately on completion of task

Add the new tasks as and when you receive

Complete the simple work then and there immediately

for medium level and difficult work please seek help from your seniors, and if you are not getting help from them, you can post a querry in this forum, by which you can get guidance from our learned members.

Next day morning please make a new list with yesterday's left out and today's task. Give priority to the yesterday's task.

Never keep any work long pending. Make your schedule for the week, month and year and move as per the schedule.

If you deviate from your schedule, sit in late hours (if possible) or come on one Sunday/Holiday and complete the task peacefully.

Please go through your office HR Policy and other relevant policies thoroughly and stand on it.

If someone asking out of the way, you can tell that your company policy is not allowing to do such and if required instruct him to get special permission to get the work done.

If you aware of your office policy, you can speak confidently. You must be polite with confident reply.

First learn how to tell NO. If you learn how to tell and when to tell the word NO then you are the boss in your company.

Wish you all the success dear.

Hi Meenu
The fear of speaking up in a face to face communication is-
1.Lack of knowledge
2.More bothered about what people think of you( lack of self esteem or confidence)
3.Lack of planing preparation and practice in case of presentations
4. Fear of failure( related to point 2)
You to work on your fears(only you can ) and upgrade your knowledge and also practice and speak up on every given opportunity.
There are no failures in life-- only learning experiences.
All the best! :)

Good Day HR Seniors,
My boss approached me today regarding revamping the existing Employee Loan Policy for the company, we need to get it done in as simple terms as possible, which will be easily understood and comprehended by all the staff members.
if you have some formats and templates please share them here as i am a new member and not allowed to post my email address as yet.
Thank you in advance for all your help.

Hi Suhas ,
You said you have been working as project coordinator.There is a narrow scope in the field which you are working. You should either continue in the same field with less opportunities or enter in the ocean of General HR where there are lot many opportunities at the same time many aspirants to compete with you.Also you didnot specify how many yrs of experience you have.
You will have to start your career as the 'Recruiter' (screening,shortlisting,portals etc). the core HR jobs are tough to find in the current market.
Any Questions please feel free to ask.
Hope this helps!

Dear Sravani,
Myself Sudha Sundriyal , I am working a PVt. ltd Company in Delhi we get project from state Govts. of Organic Farming and i work as Project Coordinator, you have recently heard about Organic Pulses, Vegetables yes we are motivating farmer to do that and their whole documentation was managed by us. I had 4 yrs of experince purely in Organic Farming and overall 6 yrs job working experience. As this is a new field so job opportunities are less for me, so i am worried abt my carrer hw i will grow.
and truly speaking i had tried bt nt get a job in HR and nw as i am experienced it is becoming more difficult to start and i have no friend or relative related to HR. So i was nt able to get right guidance and as i done BSC i get interested in Organic Farming so continued bt nw growth is stagnant. So, please tell me which HR field suits me as there is lot of HR roles as generalist, recuriter etc.

Hello Friends,
I agree with Sravani. For a non HR background person, recruitment is an easy option to start a career in HR. However you don't get much salary here in the beginning. Recruitment is such an option that only those should go for it who can withstand the day to pressure. Generalist profile is very rare and MBA into HR is mostly preferred however you can get this too in small firms.

Dear Mr. Anand,
I had done PGDBA in HR and completed it in 2008 bt i had tried a hard at that time bt got no job in field of HR and this Organic farming concept was just a start so everybody said that something new will have a bright future so i continued and my BSc helped me in it, i had done coursed regarding Organic Farming to get updated bt when i had started searching job its very few vacancies in Delhi ,So for my future i am a little bit scared ...

Hi Sudha,
Choosing a right job is really a tough decision. One should always follow ones interest and passion. Never go for what others say you.
If you feel that HR is the best job for you and you will excel in HR only then go for it. No job is tough or easy. It all depends on a person's talent, skills and interest.
You will get many opportunities in HR in Delhi and NCR. Recruitment is the evergreen vacancies. Register in job portals. Spend 1-2 hours searching job on net and follow up with the companies. You will definitely get.

Dear Sravani,
Truly speaking i love to work in the field of Organic Farming as it is helping India by providing pure food to individuals bt it will take time but no growth in this field.
Regarding HR it is also very interesting to handle Human resources as they are the key to success for an Organization.
So, thanks for reply i am trying updated my portals bt nt getting right job. if get surely let you know.

Dear Sudha,
Dont u worry dear, it is the worst time in life when v search for jobs.........
I was a fresher with mba hr degree tried for 6 months but didnt got job in this field so shifted to IT sector but had a zeal for working in HR, i tried in industry set ups and got the job in hr department as an asst. hr manager, u also try in the industrial areas located near ur city, u will definetely get a job in hr n no doubt u will enjoy it.
Just drop ur resumes physically in 5 to 6 industries which are local based, just enter them n learn , gain experience and try for big giants......
Think positive and u will receive positive responses.
