your career will be affected if u change from placement consultancy to industry HR later on.
u are also limiting your exposure to only recruitment . HR is a ocean and u will miss bulk of it

Was it because you want to switch profile? Generalist to recruiter?
If so, you can continue in consultancy for few months, get a grip over recruitment and get all the do's and dont's of recruitment and then you can move further to corporate back as recruitment spl or core recruiter.
If however you wish to explore diff HR aspects (Which is not just recruitment/onboarding. There are things like policy making & implementing, maintaining attendance & leave, conducting performance management & appraisal, employee grievance handling, etc etc)
You need to switch back to corporate ASAP.
People usually start with consultancy when they fail to get a corporate job so that they atleast get experience letter for switch. You've actually done it other way round, the reson for which is not understood by me. Bt hv given you clarity on both things...
Hope it helped.
All the best :)

Never mind, now focus on your current job, learn all aspects of recruitment for a couple of years, establish contacts & plan switching back to the corporate sector.
Any job, in my opinion, can contribute to your profile for career growth in the HR domain provided you have taken it seriously. It may be wrong to say that experience in an HR Consultancy firm will not be useful in the long run. You must learn what 'Talent Search' means in totality & how a recruitment consultancy firm adds value to this process. If your clients are able to get through your consultancy the type of people they need, you would have acquired some competency in this area. Therefore, be focused on your job & avoid restlessness caused by this state of confusion.
Remember, Talent Search is the start point of Talent Management. And today you are a part of that Talent Search process , not for one but multiple organizations. Good luck & do well!
