In HR filed recruitment is primary ( First Stage ) Function . In this stage you will get knowledge about judge the candidates by resumes. So No need to worry about. You have to involve in other HR functions with this work.
All the best.
Be it a recruiter or Generalist, love your work and you will never have to chase other things. Grass looks greener on other side, always water your side better to make it more greener.
However its always refreshing to keep a yearning to learn more about various specialties and scope in chosen career. HR has many functions which are worth exploring and you shall always strive to better yourself.
In my opinion, whatever you choose or get into, spend respectful time into learning that profession, experience the pros and cons and master them. You will always move on as wiser and learned.
Specific to your career advise, donít chase courses and certificates to beef up your CV. If your intention is to learn, then read books of topics which interest you and learn from experience. Make a sound decision of investing in courses and certification which appeals to your interest and add valued skill to your abilities. Learn skills which are niche and technology oriented, rather then investing in generic skills. For example. Learn HRIS, compensation & benefit strategies, Labor Law, Collective Bargaining, Legal Compliance, PMS etc.
Work as a recruiter for 2 Ė 3 years, enjoy the challenges and live through the grill. Meanwhile hone your skills in other aspects of HR which attracts you. Donít go for another field because someone said its easy being generalist, this and that. Donít go for the glamour either. Study, research and analyze what are the core duties, responsibilities, scope and involvement of the desired field you want to get into. Donít take haphazard hasty decision to resign and chase those elusive roles. Keep working no matter what. Look into yourself, your abilities and constraints to decide whether you are capable for new role you desire, rather then listen to 10 people with different POVs. Donít over rate or under estimate your self. Be objective about your skills and be brutally honest in your self assessment.
Donít live in a hurry ! High positions, money and respect will come to you by virtue of your conduct and performance, rather than seeking restless shortcuts to high fancy job titles resulting in stressful failures due to non competency.
Spend your energies in networking better and wider, network to learn not exploit, make friends not contacts.
Wish you all the best.

You are working as HR generalist, is good enough to continue your career in HR field, research and learn more about HR possibilities. In my opinion you donít have to do MBA-HR to grow, unless you aim at prestigious, reputed MBA schools, for which you may have to take en educational gap, enroll in full time course and invest a lot of money if you want to develop yourself into management professional. Which is hit and miss gamble.
If you want to specialize, then focus on the field which interest you in HR field. What do you enjoy the most in HR (T&D, PMS, HRIS, Recrtuiment, Labor Law, Admin etc) read books, attend seminars, trainings, workshops and learn about this fields, these are cheaper and convenient as compared to pledging your time and money into full time course with no career guarantee.
