My name is Eshwar, I am working in IT Consultancy and have 4 years of work experience in IT Recruitment (2 Years in US Staffing & 2 Years Domestic Staffing), I want to change my career from recruitment to HR Generalist/HR Admin but i am a B.C.A graduate only. Most of companies preferred MBA HR. Kindly advice how to approach for the HR Positions and is it possible to move HR Field.

You can get into HR Generalist field by 2 ways.
1st is that you can go for some courses and diplomas in HRM
2nd is that you can compromise with your salary and start from scratch by getting an internship or assistant's job in Hr Admin or Hr Generalist profile.

Hello Saundarya Ma'am,
Recruitment is quite different for core HR. Its the base of HR. You can compare it to Engineers working in development and testing field and some engineers works as a Technical Support Representative.
Recruitment will surely help you to understand the job role in IT sector, which will further help you to work in core HR field.
You can work in recruitment field for a while gain some good experience and then shift to Core field, it will definitely make your base strong!
Even in recruitment field has vast exposure and good salary. After gaining experience you can also open your own consultancy services or work as a freelancer in this field.

Hai Soundarya,
I think you can start applying for HR generalist profiles by mentioning your recruitment experience.I know its hard to make a switch,as hiring managers will ask for experience.Mention clearly in your Resume summary that you want to broaden your prospects in HR by being a generalist.
All the best
