HR is a multi-skilled function ranging from recruitment, training, talent management performance management, organisational development to industrial relations,compensation designing and benefits management etc.To be a specialist, you should find out the function which you have a natural flair for because you need to excel in it and develop expertise in it and it will be difficult to excel in a function unless you are interested in it.Therefore my view is that it is always better to start your career as HR-generalist as this gives you an opportunity to discover your natural inclinations and strengths and the jobs which you enjoy doing.this will help you to identify the functions in which you want to specialize. Hope this provides some direction to your thinking.

Plz guide me for hr field

Hi,
Since you already possess five years experience in Training and Development you can continue the continue with same profile. However if you are interested in HR generalist employers will expect relevant experience. In that case employers will negotiate on salary part and you may expect your last salary to continue.

Instead of restarting your career after a gap of one year in a new profile, it is advisable to continue in learning and development to start with, while at the same time looking for exposure to HR Generalist profile in the same organisation or look for mixed profile of training and generalist functions with training as large share of the profile as it makes it easy for you to get a break into such profiles and facilitate your transition into generalist profile latter if you want to switch.
