Hi All...

I Just joined as an HR recruiter, its just been 15 days.I havent done MBA,but plan to pursue... I am an engineering graduate :(

I come from a BPO back ground.I have 5 years work exp. in BPO for an International voice process.

I am not really happy as of now with recruitment as its a typical calling profile.I came in HR field for a profile change and a career growth. My Manager demands me to be aggressive (as its an imp. aspect of recruitment). I come from a BPO profile, were we were taught to be very polite, soft spoken and empathizing.

Thus,I am also very soft spoken and Polite. I strength is my communication and politeness that i think can be utilized well in a different field of HR.. (Finall y we all are humans, I cant be rude)

I want to grow in the HR field either in training and development or talent acquisition as I feel I can give my best and enjoy my work as well. I am not aware what these fields are though, just have read some articles on the Internet for the same.

Can some one guide me so that it can help me to get into Core HR and the above specializations.

The traits of being polite, communicative and empathizing are essential in any profile more so in HR and it is good that you have them.With this strength, you can probably train people in soft skills and thus your career in training & development may become uni-dimensional and limited.To pursue a career in training in HR areas which are as diverse as training in standard operating procedures, pay-roll management or performance management etc,.,you need to develop knowledge and skills in those areas which can be acquired after working in the respective roles.For this you need to get into a HR role in a business organisation with sound HR practices.Going by the existing trend of recruitment for HR jobs by good brands, you need to have a relevant qualifications in HR either MBA or a PG diploma from a recognized Institute. Since you are in Mumbai, you can pursue a part time executive MBA programme offered by Mumbai University without leaving your job.You can also pursue short term diploma courses in HR offered by Wellingkar Institute etc. You can find out which suits your convenience.

Hello Janhavi Joshi,
I am NOT really sure what your Manager means by being 'aggressive'.
It's always an advantage--like B.Saikumar mentioned--to be polite & Soft spoken in ANY & EVERY field.
But this is NOT to be mistaken as 'docile' & 'weak-kneed'. One can be polite & yet FIRM in speech & action.
Suggest speak to your Manager one-to-one on what he expects from you & then you can calibrate your responses.
And, like B.Saikumar mentioned begin to focus on doing your MBA. This will be a MUST at some point of time in your HR career. So handle it when you aren't under pressure to do it.
All the Best.
