Hello Dear Seniors, I recently got to know about this HRBP and HRMP certification. I am an MBA - HR grad and have 1-year work exp of HR Generalist role in an IT company and 10 months exp in non-IT recruitment. I left my job 2 months back post maternity and I am planning to work after a year break.
I would like to know whether this certification will be useful for me. Will this certification help me get placed in any esteemed organization?
If No, then please suggest which course should I pursue.. SAP or any such course so that I can make good use of this 1 year gap. Pls suggest.
Please Note: I do not prefer to take up a job that requires me to work in night shift. So suggest a suitable HR certification course accordingly.

Hello Nisha. Good to know that u would like to get back to working post ur maternity.
U have mentioned u are already MBA-HR and have some experience in hr, especially recruitment.
I honestly believe that at this stage, doing a course (in addition to MBA) will be a waste of time and money.
May I know what is ur intention behind doing this course? Is it purely that u will get a job post that or something specific u want to learn?

Hi Aditya,
I do have an MBA degree but I could not pursue it from a reputed Institute due to which I lack knowledge in some areas of HR. For Example I do not have much knowledge on Payroll, Compensation-Benefits and Labour Laws. Hence I thought i'll pursue some certified course which will help me gain some knowledge and also help me get a good job as well.

Since you have completed your MBA with job experience too. You can acquire knowledge on practical aspects through leading journals , website material. that will be enough also you can attend specific training programmes/seminars being conducted by training organization, business association like FICCI etc. After reading and acquiring knowledge you can discuss in this forum too for any clarification. This will save your time and money and your skills will be enhanced as well.

Dear Nisha, You may consider Dip. in Adm. & Labour Laws or Dip./Cert. in SW which along with your MBA would be good to face job hunting.

What you are saying is good but, if you are facing the interview, co. is more interested in your past experiences or a practical knowledge you have! (which softwares you have worked on? Min employees handled for Payroll?)
Hence how do we cope up with this kind of expectation without a proper training / experience?(specifically in Generalist profile).
I am also planning to start my career after a gap of almost 4 yrs. Have experience in IT (recruitment - majorly).
Would look forward for some good suggestions as I have to really get into the action.I will be completing my MBA (distance) by August.
Can we bank on private institutes who train on these HR courses & promise JOB! (What all points should we verify before considering the option?).
Kindly suggest.

Hi Nisha,
HRBP/ HRMP courses are from HRCI(very well recognised US based institute). It definitely helps to improve the overall HR skills. My suggestion for you is HRBP course.
In addition, if you are looking any job specific skills course such as for PAYROLL.. NAIP certification course may be one of the good option. Similarly, for compensation and benefits, Job Evaluation, Job Description courses may help too.
Hope you find it useful.
Thank you and best regards

Hi Reshma,
It is obvious that in the interview they will ask about your past experience in case you have experience you can answer them otherwise you have to make you. Private institutes can give you practical knowledge , regrading job assurance you must get something in writing. for that. You can take help of seniors to get clarity on any related query and job opportunity as well. I can suggest you more if any further query.

I feel it's ok if u donot know about other verticals in HR. I feel that one should not look at various courses as means to get jobs. As the real learning happens on the job; especially in HR. I am also an MBA not from a reputed institute and I realise that we are stuck with it for the rest of our lives. But u have the option of focusing on getting a job first. May be u can do a course on law part-time. But donot pin all ur hopes and all possibilities of a job on doing some course. It's not a magic wand that will change the condition.

Doing MBA course in HR by correspondence is only a waste of time, as the very purpose of
the same fails. Try to do the same in regular class room/discussions/seminars etc.
But a degree/PG dip in Management from AIMA (All India Managements Association, New Delhi)
is quite worth.
Suggest now you can further pursue your degree /course in Labour Laws.
MBA degree in HR coupled with a degree in Labour Laws, shall work successfully.
Alternatively you can do a course in Behavioural Science.with a Diploma in Training from
reputed institutes like ISTD (Indian Society for Training & Development), as female HR professionals
can work well in T&D area, rather than in IR/LR area.
