Rubis,
Do you have real passion about HR? If so take HR course from reputed institute. Once you do that just try to get the job in HR. Not easy now-a days, but of you have real passion and you are conceptually clear, you will bag the same. Best Luck.

Hi Vinod, Thank yu...I have a passion for hr rather than technical IT. And I just wish to ask you whether doing the course PGDHR in IGNOU will help or i need to do mba in hr. Regards, Rubis

Hi Rubis
You can very well pursue HR with your engineering back ground if you have passion for it. Lack of any previous qualification in social sceince subject does not stand in your way.All that you need is an aptitude for it. If your are some one who is intereted in people's issues and loves communication and socially active, you will like it.A formal qualification in HR is necessary to have a start in the career and thereafter it is your knowledge and skills that keep you afloat. If it is possible, try to do a full time course. If not try to do a part time course while doing a job.If these two options are not possible, you can think of IGNOU or other distance mode offered. However make a proper enquiry before taking admission.If you can pursue the course at Mumbai, you can try at TISS, Mumbaiwhich is reputed for HR.

As rightly said by Mr. Sai Kumar, you would need a formal degree/certification to kick start with HR.
While I was in my MBA-prep time, even my prof used to advice me doing full time over part time or distance mode. The advantage of doing a full time course is that you get a grounding, you get to share idea, you can participate in various events and contribute and can learn a lot about time mgmt and talent development, the most reqd thing in management.
I would still keep it to you if or not you wish to avail a full time degree course. If ur in Mumbai, Welingkars have s, 1yr diploma smthing in HR which you and enquire and weigh all pros and cons....
I can understand you've experience, but understand "experience" means "relative experience" which you dont have. Either you'll land up at a very low cost dng basic rec or if you need good job, pls do sm certification/course.
Hope it was of help :)

Hi Sai,
Thank yu for the information. The thing is now it is not possible for me to do a full time course. Am gathering details for the IGNOU and I would like to know whether any short term certification course available for hr. If there is any, will it be helpful for my career?

Hi Ankita,
Thankx again for your valuable information. Can you kindly acknowledge me with the certification courses available for hr and its benefits. I would like to start up with a job rather than doing full time course. However it is not possible for me to do a full time course now.
Warm Regards,
Rubis.

Hi Rubis,
I surely can help....
I would suggest rather than gng for private certification, you can as suggested go for 1 year diploma with welingkars.
WE school has a campus on Banglore as well, pls chk if dey offer same 1 year course in HR there too... It is offered in Mumbai's campus and it is at par with other degree course as my frnd did it.... and we've compared our subjects....
Just chk that and let me know...

Hi Ankita,
Sure i'll go through these nd let yu knw.. Actually i am planning to relocate to uae nd seek a job there in hr. Gathering details for that..so thot of doin this in distance education. will it be helpful?

Ankita's suggestion of Wellingkar is worth pursuing.However, I have seen employers pitching in for two year diploma courses. This diploma may enable you to gain an entry in HR but to move thereafter in career, you may have to have a proper integrated qualification.Therefore plan for it also now.All the best.

Usually a distance learning management course isn't as fruitful as a full time/part time/ classroom session.
Honestly speaking, it is not just the HR knowledge or certification, it is also the HR discussions and projects, how you interact in groups, how you handle trivial information, project deadlines, handle your group and man power, etc that goes in making an HR professional. A distance learning would surely give you the same education and similar certification but the mock experience wouldn't be there.
It would be for yourself to decide what you wish to avail. If it is only the certification, i don't think distance education would harm, But if you need to learn and grow a school session would be needed.
Hope it helped.

Hi Ankita,

Hi Rubis...

Being from technical background, i can only say Oracle and SAP are like CRM...

Basically a SAP HR or an Oracle HR course would help you to work on the HR software that many big organizations use... But not all...

Many big brands who have considerablly manageable employees, even today use traditional excel and access (as database) to come to conclusion.

Another thing, as i said before SAP and Oracle are just CRM or database/info handling mechanism, it won't give you core HR knowledge... it would teach you how to do (say for eg) a recruitment task easily by maintaining a data that gets updated automatically...

But it won't teach you the core process of recruitment... (hope you were able to guage the difference)

Abt which course is better, honestly i've never enquired.... reason being, in order to understand a shortcut or an easy way, firstly we must know the longcut or a difficult way... I am trying my hands on excel and managing my data on it (also coz we have under 50 staff).... So i can't tell you which one is better...

But I would recommend to first understand the core HR process and practice, and how it works and then only if reqd you can learn the shortcuts of the process... It may so happen that the investment u'd make for such course, you may not be able to put it to use... unless you are wid a brand or big organization with large no of employees, it might not be of help...

one of my frnd's working at a brnd, its in IT industry, HQ at Mumbai but have offices at many places, employee strength of 1000+ or still higher range... and yet she uses excel to make trackers....

Just to give you an idea abt how fruitful or futile it would be to undergo SAP/Oracle at the beginning of ur career... you can always do so in the later part when you think it bcms essential...

(Again that was my suggestion, you're free to seek advice from other professionals here who have better experience... :-) )

Wish you luck :-)

Hi Ankita,,,
Thank you fr your info...it was really helpfull.. I reviewed the course details... today my cousin told me abt schlinder's Corp HR certificate prgm..do you have any idea about this...
Rubis
14th December 2012 From India, Bangalore
No dear, no idea about it... I guess i've heard the name... but dat's all about it... I have no idea about it...
While selecting a course, make thorough research as to what course they offer, detailed subject line and syllabus covered and market acceptabilty
Wish you luck:-)

As Ankita suggested Wellingkars is one option you can pursue.You can alsocontact Baratiya Vidya Bhavan at Banglore to explore any option for short term courses. They offer one year diploma courses.

Hi Rubis,
Good to know you are interested in Human resource career, first of all engineering degree is plus point for you in this profession, Secondly along with present degree if you have some degree of Human resources it will add an additional value to your carrier.
Now a day’s every organization is hunting behind the cost minimization , process excellence, resource optimization being as an engineer you can underpants the manpower allocation in manufacturing industries ,their training and development planning and need analysis etc what I want to say you can easily understand the tenacity of the matters and have good control over the RCA processes.
A part from that an additional degree in human resources will help you to understand the various Hr functions ,roles the fields in which Hr can contribute, it will also give a sight view of legal statuary compliances in other words you can be able to know the various laws in relation to human Resources.
