Hi
I am new to forum . For many weeks i have read the discussion on various topics.
In discussion the suggestions are that one should have some business experience before Management education.But when it comes to recruiting I found that freshers always get preference.
I have 10years of working experience in technical field since i started working while studying. Now i find that my experience is the biggest hurdle when i want to switchover to H HR which is the field i graduated.
Everyone says that you have too much experience. isn't that a good thing.

Hi Pappillon,
A:
Well, those who say that you have too much experience probably need to get their heads examined!..
You are finding difficulty to switch over to HR which was your educational qualification & have worked on technical field ..right..so the potential employers feel that you don't have the credentials to work in HR field
What i would say is that it is how you present yourself , your confidence & structuring your profile which is in technical field to HR strategic point of view. Infact this should be your biggest strength that you understand technical terms which most of my colleagues may not be able to understand or evaluate/assessment.
Above all you have the sensitivity to the positions as you have worked in the technical field & you would be able to serve the company well once you wear the HR Hat.
Remember no experience is no too much or to less but how we learn from them & leverage it.
Good Luck!

As I understand you are a HR graduate, but worked in a technical field and now want to switch back to HR. You are facing problems with Hiring managers disqualifying you for your 10 years of technical/overall experience as too much experience.

There is a possibility you may hit with obstacles just because you seem out of touch with HR for 10 years. I am not sure how you are presenting yourself to organisations and what career plan you have in mind, because based on your experience you can tailor your profile, highlight relevant areas that may be directly applicable to HR/recruiting areas of the job and attract attention of organisations.

You will have to customise yourself to the need of the organisation and present your uniqely for each position you are applying for. Experience brings enrichment in our career and you will have to use it to your advantage to get the much need attention.

Sometimes the "freshers" have the advantage of access to the most up to date information about current issues and the "market place". I have a few friends who have had similar experiences to you. Persistance will pay though. Opportunities appear to be on the increase.
You can't overlook the absolute importance of a good profesional resume/cv either. Why are us HR types so poor at this? I found a brilliant little "how to" book on the internet for only $10 AUD. I think the site was . You might want to take a look, make sure you've got this base well and truly covered.

I feel it is the cost which is the hurdle... though you might have the expertise in the subject, companies believe in training freshers.
