My honest advice would be to stick to your job right now and start preparing for MBA. I wouldn't advice leaving ur job and preparing for MBA. As I can see, you are handling quite a lot of activities- a huge chunk of HR spectrum; right from recruitment, induction, T&D, payroll etc. This is a chance that many people don't ever get. Make the most of it and learn. My guess is that although u dont have a structured HR dept, u will, in time, have a more stable HRD. I think it's just a matter of time.
You want to work for corporate, fine. Then start looking for jobs simultaneously.

Agree with Aditya, you are much in HR profile handling 3-4 major terms. Its just a start and in this phase people mostly get 1-2 basic roles to play in their first job and you are handling all these in a very wide form. If am not wrong you are only prepared your mind as you don't have any Sr. mgmt to whom you can follow and can learn things in better way. But you should be confident in your capabilities as mgmt gave you all these responsibilities because they found some spark in you. Don't let them down and you are doing quite good in your starting phase.

From here you can concentrate on your interest part and can get the depth knowledge and practicle experience in that.

Other side as you mentioned that you want to go in corporate for that i would like to suggest you to collect some exp. first and better should go for MBA with job. that will be a milestone for you after 1 and half year. But don't go for change right now.

Besides all this what other areas you want to cover in your first profile or please let me know what HR terms you want to perform as you are not satisfied with your current profile.

Thank you for your comment. Atul you asked me my interest area is HR Operation. But as i can see Hotel Industry HR operation Process and Corporates HR Process is very Different. i want to work professionally but my current position is divide in HR as well as finance department. And apart from job please suggest me any short term coerces which i can do before MBA. Aditya you told me, better option is MBA but now days everyone can do MBA. Even I am agree for that but I really want do more extra which are give me a bright career in HR. I visited already welinkar college but they provided HRD and MBA in HR.

1. From what I understood, you don't want to continue where you are working currently. You want to do some courses that will help you grow. You can check out SHRM, where they offer some short courses in HR. One needs minimum 1 year of work experience in HR for that. Moreover, there are part time MBA offered by many institutes. Apart from these, I am not aware of any other courses, nor of their credibility. My honest advise would be not to do 'some' course and hope things will work. U will need to thoroughly check the credibility of this.

2. Now, do you want to do some course AND mba, or a course OR mba. Ur reply was quite unclear on that.

3. Also, I want to point out that when u say "I really want do more extra which are give me a bright career in HR", doing some course(even MBA) is not the ultimate mantra. If one wants to succeed, and have a BRIGHT career, one can do that with basic graduation as well. Just doing a course will never guarantee that.

3. Pls explain how is ur role dual- in HR and finance.

4. HR Dept anywhere (industry) is quite similar. It has the same mandate. Ofcourse, the hospitality industry is growing and by its very nature it's a different type of work. Hence, the HR operations in corporate and in hospitality might seem different. From a microscopic view, they may be, But believe me that the processes and the ideologies remain the same- irrespective of the industry. I am being presumptuous, but your reasons for change may be more personal (such as better work life balance in corporate); which is the reason most people leave hospitality industry in general. If that is so, then dont look at education as an escape.

5. I have put forth my view, I would love to hear from seniors who have a more matured perspective. I am, admittedly, quite junior to most of the people here.
