Hello Arefin
Linkedin is one of the tool of recruiter. A LinkdIn profile and connecting with people and educational certificates will not give hundred percent assurance for employment chances. Do not think like that. Soft skills are important in today's world. Soft skills are not learnt in school and college. Employment chances are depend upon the job market conditions/situations and compititions. We are living/going to live with artificial intelligence (robotic)/ automation world.
Update and upgrade yourself and keep moving.
An adaptable mind is an essential tool for navigating today’s ever-changing world, as yesterday’s solutions won’t solve tomorrow’s problems.
Yours Sincerely
Mohan Nair

I am on the same page with my learned professionals who have given excellent inputs. Most of the people do the same job over and over again. They never think of upskilling themselves, finding new forays into modern day requirements of organisations. Nobody here has talked about HR Data Analytics. When I started using a desktop in 1987, its capacity was 386 KB.. from there i migrated to 486, 586, Pentium 1,2,3,4 and then on to laptop... so many versions and am now using a windows X. My mobile ram capacity is 8GB. All intranet portals have abundance of data.. Data analytics talks about using this data for analying the trend in terms of employees originating from same educational institutions, choice of holiday homes, facilities availed by employees. These details give insight into the employee choices and preferences and help in fine-tuning, modifying, changing, amending various HR policies for organisational growth and development. At the age of 66 I take classes for professors on HR Analytics.. How many youngsters are keen to learn these things. Recently I happened to conduct a one day class on Recruitment skills in a MBA school in Bangalore. There were around 30 students. I asked each student, in which area of HR they want to specialise after graduation. 25 students told Recruitment. I told that it is overflowing, there are more recruitment agencies in Bangalore than pan shops or mobile shops. Only a handful talked about L&D or Competency mapping etc. Here also, if we take a survey we will know that people choose path of least resistance. Nobody wants IR, Data Analytics, Performance Systems etc. For many HR means recruitment or statutory compliance. If you do not look beyond our nose, they will get depressed in the long run.
Mr Arefin,
I agree that networking with people n friends on linkedin/ other social media doesnt help..
Regarding ur 5 yrs HR generalist experiance in IT industry n not getting better role, I would suggest u to do some course in HR BP or do HR analyyics course..also try applying for HR BP profiles as ur HR generalist experiance n knowledge can be useful n handy for this role..

All that industry needs is the people with flare to bring great changes and bring in the business or help support any business/ its vertical to a standard different than their competetitors .
Excitment is the key, and challenge is the Bull, You hit it with confidence and with ability and energy oof commitment what best can be given from your end.

How can you make sure you make the right career move? Before making any drastic, rushed decisions, follow the 7 tips below to consider what you really want from your next role.
1. Make sure you’re really ready – emotionally and practically
Before you decide to change job, you first need to ask yourself if you are thinking of this change for the right reasons, and not just because you’re having a bad day. You need to ensure that you are committed to the job search process, willing and able to apply to vacancies, take phone calls and attend job interviews.
2. Consider what you really want from your next role
Self-evaluation is critical but often overlooked by many professionals when they start thinking about finding a new job. Take some time to assess:
What do you need and want from your job?
What skills and experience do you have to offer?
What type of role interests you?
What type of organisation do you identify with?
Knowing how to confidently answer these questions will help you clearly articulate to either recruitment consultancies or employers what you want to achieve from your next move.
3. Do your research
Once you are clear on the sort of role and employer you are looking for, research the organisations and available jobs that meet your criteria and assess if they will add value to your resume, career or skill set.
Reasearch the job market to figure out what opportunities are available. For advice on this, a good option is to sign on with a recruitment agency in order to get in-depth tips on the current market, which organisations are hiring and how long the recruitment process is currently taking. Ask for any market update and salary information and sign up for job alerts that match your chosen job criteria.
4. Get networking
By being well-networked, you’ll not only be able to tap into the 'hidden' job market; you’ll also be giving yourself a real advantage over other candidates. Your network should include anyone who can assist you with a job search or career move — from past and present co-workers and bosses to colleagues from business associations and friends. Attend industry events or special networking sessions and use tools like LinkedIn to expand your professional social circle.
5. Keep learning
“The more that you read, the more things you’ll know. The more that you learn the more places you’ll go.” - Dr.Seuss
There's always something more to learn, or something that you can strive to do better than your competitors. Identify these areas, incorporate continuous learning as an integral part of your job search, and keep your skill-sets current and updated.
6. Spend adequate time on your CV
While this may seem like common sense, many professionals can stumble at this hurdle. A good CV should be achievement-driven and sell to a potential employer the benefits of hiring you as an employee. It should always be tailored to the job for which you apply for and explain why you are the right person for the role. Think of your CV as a sales document – it needs to sell you and where you can add value, and convince potential employers that it will be worth their time to interview you.
7. Consider interim management
If you’re unsure exactly what your next career move should be, interim management could be an option for you. It gives you the opportunity to test your capabilities in new environments, helping you to make the next all-important career decision. Interim management assignments can also offer you greater flexibility, work/life balance and the opportunity to increase hourly earnings. Plus, the variety that comes with working in interim management increases your skills base, industry knowledge, experience and exposure to dynamic environments.

Hi Sir,
I will suggested to you do not fill it you have got more opportunity's you don't feel it you gain more knowledge
one day you got a wonderful job .
