Hi! I am having exeperinece of 6 years in HR domain as HR Generalist/HR Operation. I have completed my graduation & PG from distance learning but somewhere I feel that my career is stucked and i am not getting growth in my expertise area due to distance education.

I want to build my carrier in HR Business partner profile. Should I go for any certification or course to enhance my knowledge and skills which could help me grow in particular field. Thanks!

Dear M Girotra,

Why do you feel that your distance education is coming in the way of your career's growth? It is not just the mode of education, but the implementation of knowledge gained at the workplace is important. Yes, the regular MBA course has an edge over distance education because, in the former, one gets guidance from the faculty. Nevertheless, the quality of the institute also matters. There are many MBAs who have done the regular course. That did not mean that they did not remain unemployed. Therefore, remove the misconception from your mind.

You may do an audit of the work practises in your company and find out what is the scope of implementation of something new in your company. When you do the audit, you will always find some gap. Try bridging the gap. You could face challenges while doing so. However, the lessons learnt while doing so will improve your confidence.

Have you made a career plan for your career? The important component of the Career Development Plan (CDP) is doing SWOT Analysis for oneself. Have you done that? Earlier, I have given an exhaustive reply on both topics. You may click the following links to refer to those:



By the way, having knowledge is one thing and the ability to present it or communicate it is another. Here we find your observable weakness. You need to work on your communication skills. The quality of your post does not justify your 6-year experience. The sooner you remove this weakness, the better for your career!
