I have more than 5 years work experience in recruitment Industry, Currently I am searching for Job
Meanwhile after working in recruitment industry I thought I should change my career track from Recruitment to Generalist
in my previous company I was doing CTC Design while issuing Offer letter Appointment letter to Employees
& also know the calculation part of PF & ESIC
but due to my work experience I am getting only Recruitment job offer from Recruiter, Even Attended Interview for Generalist role but they want candidate who can independently handle payroll process ( dont have that much of confidence)
its been almost 2 month I am looking for Generalist job, feeling so depressed
So kindly please advice should I stick to the role of recruiter or should go for the Generalist
Thanks & Regards

Dear Milind,
Good Morning,
Don't get depressed. I would suggest you to approach a company who gives you an opportunity in both Generalist as well as Recruitment. Some companies offer job with 50% to 60 % Recruitment and 50% to 40% Generalist role .Such opportunity will help you to utilize your experience of Recruitment as well as you will get opportunity to work on Generalist role as well. Convince future employer to give you a designation of either HR Executive/ Generalist HR as this will change your current profile name.
Stay Happy

There is another option is that, if you want to come into HR profile, You should be ready to compromise on salary part.
As these question will not be arise up to that much level because, you already handled somewhat Compensation part basically, statutory Compliance's which is most imp and many company’s asks for the same.
You try your best level; very soon your Hardcore HR job is on the way...)

Dear Milind Wagh,
The thing is getting job is one thing and maintain the job is another thing.Any company expects some skills by offering job to you.If they hire you obviously they have to get things of HR generalist duties.Hence you have to learn the required tasks by training and development in the generalist profile.First concentrate to learn rather than your back ground.After prove your skills at interview and chances are high if you do so. For any guidance required you may contact Raju 9030380880

in last 2 week attended 8 Interview for Generalist position...
Extremely disappointed, rejection in every interview, after continuous failure (Personally & Professionally) in life its very difficult to feel positive & Confident- (during your hard time only parents will be there for you)
in my previous job I worked only 10 month, may be that's reason being recruiter you will not appoint person who left the job within a year
1st Job - June 2011 till Nov 2014 (Consultancy worked as recruiter)
2nd Job Dec 2014 till Mar 2016 (Garment Industry worked as Sen Hr Recruiter also did some generalist activities)
3rd Job Mar 2016 till Jan 2017 (Consultancy )
Even I have elaborated my generalist activities which did in my previous job, Hr Audit,Preparing Appointment Letter, CTC Design
Too much gap will create negative impression , will give more 2 interview, after that I think Recruitment is only choice .............

Hi Milind,
Hope you are doing well!
I am into a same sort of situation and I would like to advice you to take one or two training from some basic institutions. Invest some bucks in courses as they are definitely going to help you. I understand that recruitment can be a bit hectic sometimes and it is completely fine if you want to switch. The significant point is you need to have good knowledge of the job profile in which you want to go. Take the theoretical knowledge and the institutes these days teach practicals aspects as well.
Just don't get depressed all things are happening due to a particular reason. I believe you would be learning new things by each of the interview in which you were rejected.
P.S - I am not promoting anything here. I just wrote what I thought would be best for Milind in this situation.
