  • I think if you're interested in recruitment HR jobs then you can apply to Noida based companies. Also if you are into HR work then you can apply for HR admin jobs within Gujrat. Lot of opportunities there in Gujrat. Also HR backoffice jobs are plenty to find. You just have to find the one that suits your requirement. And then see where that opportunity takes you.

    Most of the HR based work doesn't require institutional education. But you have to learn from others work and then proceed. For example, there are many internship and trainee HR jobs that you can apply too. If you don't find much work in Rajasthan, then you have to apply in other states. Gujrat and Noida being closer from your location can be another option for you.

    Pick the one with low salary initially and then after 1 year apply to other places for better salary. That should set your career on track.

  • Human- resources is the area where you have to apply your managerial skill to upgrade the potentials of the employees so that the productivity of the company can be enhanced with the the available human - resources. Of course, there are numerous institutes which provide in depth studies for the augmentation of human resources and such tools offered by them can be implemented in practical field of work.
    Regardless of the institution from where you have done your management - degree, you have to show your inclination in the improvement of cultures of the employees to meet the company - target. That would require your ability to communicate effectively with both the employees and your boss and you need to work hard to mobilise your employees. Here success lies in your persuasive skill to train the people.
    You may get your assignment in HR appearing in leading News - papers such as Times of India, The Hindus, The Hindustan Times or still better you can track the advertisements appearing in You may start your job with a meagre remuneration but prove your worth in the initial phase of your service. Later, you can change your company after acquiring two years of work - experience so that your emoluments match with your sustained efforts.

  • Human Resources are very important for any Organisation for its prosperity. The other assets of a Organisation like Machinery, Money and Material are not having Brains. They work as you plan it. They work as you tune it. But unlike the other 3 Ms, the fourth M is different. They are having brains. So make them to dance to our tunes is difficult. Here the role of HR department comes in. All big Organisations will have a dedicated HR Department. So if you want to take up an assignment in that line, please go for a MBA in HR. That will give you lot of inputs about the methodology, techniques and tools for a better application of your skills in this line. After that you can go for any good company and you can take up the assignment.

    always confident

  • One issue here is that you did not mention the stream that you are pursuing your PG in. But from the information you have given, I am assuming that you are not an MBA yet. So I will suggest that you opt for an MBA course in HR. MBA is Master's in Business Administration. A lot of HR related jobs need knowledge in the business field. That is why all those who want a career in the HR or Human Resources domain opt for the MBA course.
    It will be better if you pursue MBA in distance mode. One really good university that offers distance MBA is IGNOU. The best thing about this distance education is that the course is offered on Saturdays and Sundays. Rest of the days can be utilized to study another course or pursue a full time job. The eligibility criteria for MBA in HR, whether from distance or regular institutes are:
    1. You must be a graduate with a minimum of 50% in the aggregate score after the final year of graduation.
    2. If along with the above criterion, you clear any MBA entrance examination like CAT or MAT or OPENMAT, then you will be eligible to study the MBA course of your preferred stream.

    This will help you appear for various HR jobs which are as follows:
    1. You will become a junior HR executive initially. Your job will be to see that the recruitment procedure in the company goes smoothly.
    2. After 5 years you will become senior HR executive. Here along with the previous duty, you will have to prepare the salary sheets of the employees, salary slips for an entire marketing region of the company.
    3. Finally after 10-15 years, you can become HR managers. Then you will be conducting induction meetings with the junior employees. You will also have to look after each and every issue raised by any employee.

    I hope all this information helps.

    Live life Kingsize!

  • Since you have not mentioned your specialization in PG, it is difficult to understand what exactly is your background.

    Be that as it may, please be advised that there are only two Institutes of National importance, and absolute professionalism, when it comes to choosing HR as a profession. These institutes are the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai) (TISS) and the Xavier's Labor Relations Institute. (XLRI). Both these institutes have entrance examinations, followed by Group Discussion and interview for the PG courses in HR.

    Apart from these, the IIMs also teach HR as one of the specializations, but there will be hardly anyone in IIMs who takes HR as a main subject. This is because they always find Finance and Marketing as more lucrative.

    Another big source of HR professionals is the Schools of Social Work, affiliated to some University or the other, with a good HR specialization. The Madras School of Social Work, Chennai, for instance, now has a Master's Degree in HR itself, apart from the MSW degree. The Loyola College, Chennai, also has a very good HR degree through its Social Work Department. The DG Vaishnav College, Chennai, is also very good for the MSW degree with HR specialization.

    Apart from these, the Indore School of Social Work, and the Baroda School of Social Work, have the MSW degree with HR specialization and are very well known for their placement records.

    Please note that for a successful career in HR, you also need to at least a short-term course in SAP HR, from any local institute in any one of the metros. This is mainly because, most of the organizations have SAP HR installed for their IT infrastructure.

    Apart from SAP HR training, please do also note that you need a big grounding in what is called Industrial Relations, where you will have to fight with the trade unions day in and day out, control them, handle disciplinary proceedings, handle a strike or a lock-out, or be part of a negotiation team that signs a bipartite or tripartite settlement with the trade unions and so on. In short, you will have to play the Management game here.

    As regards the other and vital aspect of HR, that is, HRD, please do note that this Human Resources Development is mostly only training. Only some organizations have sophisticated HR practices like Succession Planning, Performance Appraisal and so on. Still, you need to attend executive development programs conducted by some professional organizations like CII, hone your skills and work in at least three organizations. While the first experience has to be in hard core Industrial Relations for ten years, where you should also have handled some two thousand people, managed welfare practices, grievance handling, recruitment and selection and so on, the second job should be in HR with a distinct HR focus, and the third job should be in the Corporate Office, where you will be offering advise to the Unit level HR people.

    All the very best.
