Dear All, I am working as a HR trainee in a manpower consultancy firm which is of 9 years old in this field but I feel the process they do is still lagging as compared to other firms or companies.

I am scared of one reason because I want to pursue my MBA-Human Resource Management in abroad countries which requires 2 years of relevant work experience, good GMAT and TOEFL score.

Am not worried about the latter but the former is what making me feel nervous.

Does having experience in Manpower consultancy provides any edge for me over others?

In the near future when I get my MBA degree will it be counted as a good expertise? Does my MBA + 2 years' work experience land me job offer from a good company?

The place where I work they handle only non-IT jobs(mainly manufacturing companies) does the domain also considered like if I want to change my domain to IT-HR will it be possible or not?

Else I have to just focus on tools we use to shortlist candidates.

I am eagerly awaiting for your help guys,

Your experience in recruitment will land you a position as a recruiter in an organization, not necessarily a consultant. However, if you wish to position yourself as a generalist, then you would have to lower salary expectations. So you will not have an edge over others for generalist HR positions. If you want to know if your experience will be considered relevant to do the course, please speak to the institute for a clear idea.
Aside from this, a recruitment specialist who is able to close positions quickly and generate good revenue for the organization would definitely be sought after since in today's world, recruitment forms a core demanding part of HR and one of the main parameters based on which management rates HR performance.
If you're good at recruitment, you will get a job for sure.
Hope this helps answer your query.
Thank you sir yes it is really helpful and am planning the things to be done.
But am not clear about some things.
Is it good to go with IT Recruiting or NON-IT Recruiting?
Does this matter as a trainee for me from where to start?
How to differentiate between them and move ahead which is better for each individual?
Does Manpower consultancy experience of 2 years + MBA-HR leads to joining good organisation? or is it good to do a course in HR which is IAO certified for time being to get good pay that helps my education?
I am eagerly waiting for your reply
Your queries :
IT v/s non-IT recruitment.
This would depend completely on whether you want to work only in the IT industry. If you like working in different industries, then non-IT would be a better focus.
Define good organization. All organizations have positives and negatives. The idea is to find a place that suits you and you are able to deliver there.
If you join an organization as a recruiter post your MBA then your experience should be counted as valid. By the way, what is IAO certified? I am not familiar with this.
All the best.
Thank you sir, But am having doubt about the pay package in further years in comparison with IT and NON-IT.
Sir, IAO is International Accreditation Organisation
One of those certified course in Bengaluru is provided by Ripples Learning located in Kormangla.
Link:- HR Certification - CHRMP
Sir I request you to please visit the link and let me know is it good to do the course there or are there any good institute other than this please suggest me.
Else is my job experience is enough to show my skill sets in further years?
Awaiting for your reply
Hi Abhikoppa,
No one can ever say what kind of package they will end up earning. The IT industry was paying better than other industries in the past, but I think the situation has changed. Construction & FMCG are also paying well, along with Telecom.
I went through the link you shared. The information shared is not sufficient to draw a conclusion about its suitability. Nowhere do they mention about the course content, duration or cost. I suggest you ask them for the names of organizations who are hiring HR people with the qualification Ripple is providing.
I suggest you do a formal course either full-time or part-time in HR from a reasonably well known institute. You will have to do research to choose an institute, but if you do it on the above lines you should be able to find a good relevant course.
All the best.
