Dear Seniors,
Need your suggestion and advice regarding my job opportunity.
I am working for FMCG industry for the past 1.5 years, and now planning to switch over because my office shifting to another location which will take 2.30 hrs to reach the place.
Now my doubt is that i got the opportunity in a hospital to be as a individual HR, In that branch they have around 70 employees and another they have 150 around (another HR for this), Regarding the job offer i have enquired with one of my well wisher and he says that doesn't suit me due to low no of employees and not that big hospital.
They have offered me 30% hike from my last take home, Iam in a bit confusion whether to take up the offer are not.
Pls guide me and reply as early as possible, as they want me to accept the offer earlier.
Thanks & Regards

Seniors kindly reply at the earliest, your reply wil make me to take good decision. Thanks in advance. Amal Sheriff
It does not matter. I started my career in a MNC footwear company called Bata in Bangalore. I was transferred to a remote location in Bihar and was not interested to go. Had two months to move. I kept trying hard to find a job and then found a job iin a missionary hospital with a hike in salary. I took it up because of desperation. I did my job with total dedication and commitment, but kept trying to move into a manufacturing job. I got 3 jobs at the same time. Two of them were in large corporate hospitals and one in a blue chip Tata group company. I accepted the Tata group company job, though the salary was a bit lower than the corporate hospitals. Its over 25 years now and have moved on to various industries, such as Advertising, cosumer durables and textiles. Today I am based abroad as global CHRO of a prestigious blue chip multibillion dollar Petrochemical giant.

In these years, what I have learnt is that its the traditional, consevative and insecure people want to hire HR people from similar organisations. But, progressive, confident and professional people want to hire someone with talent, potential and professional competency. If he is from a different background, then, it's much better, because he will do things differently. If he is from the same background, he is more likely to repeat the same mistakes. Growth in terms of learning does not happen.

You have got a great opportunity to work in a different environment. Take it up and work with commitment and dedication. There is lot to learn in this big world. You will feel enriched when you have experience from different domains.

Amal , Firstly what is your present Dept.and qualification you have not mentioned .
Secondly ,are you aware of HR Dept, functions & duties .Simply offered means you dont accept.It is challenging career .In long run you have to stay in this Profession than you have to do some Professional course/s from good Institution .
Regards & all the best .

Since you are not interested in moving out from your present location, it seems that a job with 30% hike is very good to accept at this moment.
Thank you all for your valuable response. Dear Mr. YRSHIRKE, Iam working here as a Executive HR , and taking care from recruitment till exit and Iam a MBA HR graduate.
Amal, Greetings from Pune.
I appreciate and thank all the experts on their views and suggestion.
My response & suggestion ( because iam associtaed with an Tertiary Care Unit in Pune,101 bedded hospital ) would be that of what 'anonymous' has quoted, gaining experience and having learning attitude while reap you benefits in long term rather than sticking to one sector...ofcourse these are my views and i aint imposing them on anyone.
As having experience in Hospitality,Education & Healthcare has helped me a lot in present responsibility wherein i have to handle a vast portfolio as a Generalist .
Amal, you decide on what is best for you as it solely depends on your adaptability and nature of understanding and atlast anyone opprotunity you choose you ultimately enrich yourself with experience which is scarce nowadays.
You are already wise ad smart enough as you have appraoched CITE for advice........ Sincerely ...May you decide as you wish.
