I am reethu .I am new to this cite HR. I need all your valuable suggestions I have done general MBA in UK .graduated in 2012.I am trying for Job in Hr field in Hyderabad.I am getting job offers in consultancies and from small companies as a HR recruiter/HR Executive offering less pay and also asking 2 years bond.I am desparetly trying to get into good oraganisation even if the package is less.
Does HR recruiter experience from Consultancy's count? pls I need all of your suggestions

Dear Reethu,
The entry level job offers are too few and similar to the ones that you have found so far. Request you to try and communicate with Training firms such as SHRM or even Dale Carnegie . Not a necessity that you will find a great pay or even a good role, but you will find a brand to start with. Offer research support companies such as Great places to work. You need to reach out to all of them and keep trying. Any option with a firm like that will give you the start you are looking for.
Wish you all the best

Hi Reethu,

First, I would suggest you for not accepting any job with consultancies. Because this is a question of CAREER, and one and wrong decision can put you (or any candidate with the situation/ on a track that may force you (them) to regret in the future over this rushy decision, therefore, you need to be very conscious about your decisions.

And I would say, you certainly can get a good Trainee job with any reputed Organization and I hope you are not in hurry to join anywhere because sometime candidate has to spend a good time in searching or wait for a good job especially for Overseas STUDENTS.

See candidates who having overseas degree, may face some difficulties in searching and getting jobs because of general perception in Recruiters/Employer for Overseas Students on why candidates are looking jobs in India and why were not able to get job there at the location/Country where they have obtained degree, and kind of questions and sometime we see, they get easily good jobs because of the same tag of "Overseas Degree"

So, in this case what candidate must required is to wait for a good options and spend time in searching for a good job. Therefore, i'd suggest you to make a good profile and need to get registered yourself with Job Portals and also need to attach a Covering Latter, and try to connect with Employer directly by applying jobs.

-Get Register yourself with Naukri and other Job Portals,

-With a complete profile, you need to attached a Covering letter which is required to express yourself on why you are looking jobs in India as you have Overseas Degree

-Spend a good and regular time (Job Watch) in search a job, read company profile carefully and apply for Trainee/Freshers job.

You can get many openings posted by directly Employers as well as by Consultancies for reputed companies on their requirement

-You may also be in touch with Employers by their contacts provided/shard on Portals

But let me repeat again, you must not accept any job with consultancies

In the meanwhile, you are also advise to spend your time in learning and getting knowledge about Indian Labour Laws which will help you alot. You can spend your time here on this place (CiteHR) for reading live discussions over day life issues and learn about Indian Employment System and Work Procedure or functions of HR Department.

By doing this you can demonstrate your learning skills and interest to your Recruiters/ Employers that will be appreciated by them too.

My Best wishes are with you.


Kindly do not be offended with these questions.

"general MBA UK" or "general MBA-HR" from UK?

Which university" What were you specialization areas? What was the duration of the course?

What aspect of the HR function you are psychologically close to to"

To create a sharp focus for yourself in a career, taking a clear view of the function's reality is essential as only then you can strategy better for a career.

Assuming that you have done MBA HR, I proceed.

While the functional spread may differ from organization to organization or from country to country or even from culture (of the organization) to culture(of the organization) in very general terms the HR function comprises the fundamental areas. Conflict prone areas, the non-Conflict prone areas and Personnel Administrative areas.

Conflict prone areas take to you to applicable "labour issues, collective bargaining areas and to Union-Management areas" which a general direction to "manufacturing sector of the economy.This area is normally referred to as "Industrial Relations" area.

Non-conflict prone areas will take you to from Recruitment, Appraisals, Compensation planning, Rewards and Punishment schemes and to creation of "Policies & Programmes" that will help the organization to get the best out of its Human Resource. This area is normally referred to as "Human Resource Management" area.

Personnel Administration area is the one that concerns itself with establishment matters like Attendance, Leave Management, Statutory compliance, Salary/Wage Administration and the like. It is generally a "Records and Routines" function.

But please remember that these are NOT water-tight compartments and are configured by organizations to suit their situation and systems.

In India getting an exclusive area to develop a career in, is matter of good fortune! If you do not desire the conflict prone areas and/or the "Records and Routine" areas then your group of potential employers will be rather limited to large Indian corporate or MNCs.

Further if just "Training and Development" is your cherished area, your choices get further restricted. But I would advise you get some good hands on experience on various aspects of the function and of the organization before you enter Training and Development field as your comprehension of strategies, Inputs administration and generally your effectiveness will depend upon the credibility you command!

If you need to ask more questions, please do not hesitate.

Lastly, starting as a "Recruiter" with a small/large Recruitment Consultancy form, to me, is a WRONG way to start a career for anyone, especially to someone who has a British qualification! Your future changes to a considerable depend what one has been doing at the moment. Consider this aspect also.Don't be desperate and accept ANY job!
