I am working with an world's leading HR solution providing organisation however my role is completely different from HR, I am working in operations, which is BPO's back-end kind of work. I have 3+ year of workex in the same. I have applied many ijp's within organisation, however i have always got a similar feedback ie. i dont have any prev. exp. in hr.
I have not started my postgraduation so far, because i want to do it along with my role. Can I switch my career to hr ? is there any hope ?

Hi Himanshu,

Many people face this quandary at some points in their career. This requires a bit of research, timing and probably luck with a suitable opportunity.

Don't be too particular with what you want to do in HR. Check the possible routes to get into HR such as training, employee engagement, partaking in operational interviewing, coaching, mentoring and even if you can use an opportunity to stretch yourself to cover for an employee in a related function just to get the exposure. While IJP is an option, what may work better is a talk with your seniors and letting them know that you are keen and that you want to give it a shot. They can probably start asking you double up on a function or at least think of you when an opportunity presents itself.

Also, start your higher education as it adds value to your resume and can be an opportunity to present yourself differently. Also, people will take you more seriously when they know you are preparing yourself for a career in HR.

If nothing works in your existing organization keep an eye open for other employers who may give you a try with probably a graduation up your sleeve.

Best wishes!
