Venkata Vamsi Krishna PatnaikDear Atanu Saha,
Don't get dejected over your refusal for now.
Keep trying with a motivated spirit is all I can advise.
Having knowledge on industrial laws itself might not place you on the front seat. You should your ability to perform with the interviewer.
May be initially you can try small business entrepreneurs or start up units which might definitely offer you a job.
Later you can take up bigger units.
All the best.

Madhu.T.KDo you know why your applications to any Plant HR post are getting rejected? In factories, mines, plantations etc HR Manager is still Personnel Manager or Industrial Relations Manager. If you approach a manufacturing concern with a CV having very good exposure to Recruitment, Training and development, Performance Appraisal, Employee engagement techniques, exposure in introducing unique employee motivation theories etc etc, you may not be considered and roughly your CV will be rated something like 25 out of 100. But if you just show experience in legal compliance, appearing before the labour Officers, Officers of PF and ESI, have faced three or four strikes (whether settled bilaterally or after a conciliation or even if it is referred for adjudication), conducted domestic enquiry, carried out LTS (Long Term Settlement) with the Unions- higher the number of LTS the more good it is and even presence of multiple trade union add values to an HR person- your CV will certainly be short listed. Why because these activities will give you 80 out of 100! This is core of HR and that is what is required in a manufacturing concern. Nothing like training and development or motivational classes can bring in real productivity among the working class. Even for others it is a session to relax from the tensions of the factory!
I have an advise also. Why should you come to manufacturing concern? What is the big attraction there? Talking to the workers, having heated exchanges with union office bearers, issuing show cause notices for even silly things,,,,,,

Nagarkar Vinayak LDear Colleague,
If one has to work in manufacturing unit as an HR, employee relations content of the job occupies prominence and you lack exposure/experience in this area. Knowledge of labour laws is supportive for this role but is not all.
Your CV should show promise and confidence that you have potential to work in that role if given an opportunity .
Keep trying with your CV restructured to contain your ability and keenness to work in employee relations role and I am sure you will get your dream job one day.
