Dear Colleagues.
Recently I have attended on Interview.
In my current company I am responsible for Generalist role but attended interview for Core the time of interview interviewer asked me why I want to move from HR Generalist profile to Recruitment so in that case what should be my answer.

dear sweety,

this is Rahal Rana, i've +5 yrs experience in hr (recruitment & generalist), started my career as recruiter then shifted to generalist, now i am taking care of both the profile independently. even when i was went for generalist, the interviewer asked me same thing that why I want shift from recruitment to generalist? then i answered him that recruitment is small part of HR and i want to gain experience in HR's each & every field like attendance, payroll, statuary, legal matters, IR, letter formation, so this is basic reason for shifting or its not kind of shifting because weather i am in recruitment or generalist, my profile is count in HR field only.

so according to my knowledge you reply to your interviewer the same thing, because you've great experience in generalist but recruitment is that part of HR where you actually search the best talent for your employer.

hope you got our answer or if any doubts write me on

with best regards,

Rahul Rana

hi vikas,
it was great co-incidence that you are from haryana & working in himachal & i am from punjab willing to work in himachal or punjab side area but unfortunately i didn't find suitable opening for my self at that location.

R/Sir, My current location is baddi(H.P) & current salary is 15000/-,sir if any suitable vacancy in this area then i will definetly tell u. With warm regards Vikas yadav
sweety can you tell me y do want to move from generalist profile to recruitment??? it is usually vise versa.. pple move from recruitment profile to generalist profile.. Please think about it again..

dear Samiks, can u explain me what is prob. to shift from generalist profile to recruitment?
As told by me earlier also usually pple shift from recruitment to generalist profile.
As such there is no problem in shifting but it just restricks you into one particular role of HR whereas in generalist you are exposed to all the aspects of HR including recruitment.

datz nt sure if you are into generalist profile you are definitely look after the recruitment part in the organization, im agree on that part pple mostly shift from recruitment to generalist, but i am nt agree on your dat statement which was gvn by you to sweety that is "think about the same before shifting....."

vikas, if there is any opening in HR in your knowledge in himachal or punjab, plz let me knw
