Hi Mehnaz. This is regarding our previous discussion on HR roles. Now that I HV decided to get into recruitment after my career gap, I was going through all recuiter job postings in various websites. To be frank, I felt the yrly package is less compared to other HR roles. I felt even with 3+ or 5+ yrs exp as recruiter, there was not much gap in the package. Now getting back to work as recruiter after career gap seems to be good. But what would be recruiter career path after few yrs of exp. If there is not much growth as a recruiter, can I change to other HR roles after few yrs. Since iam MCA , if iam not wrong few of those roles like compensation or payroll side needs finance background and I can't get into that field right. So please suggest me distance education courses or certifications req for other roles within my possibility.

Hello Rama ,\n\n You made a good analysis of the job and the compensation .\nBut also note , any job be it in HR or otherwise ,it works on the principle\nof demand and supply\nHR recruiters are in abundance including freelancers , hence the average\nsalaries are just normal\n\nCareer Path : For recruiter the career path is pretty simple , people into\nthe recruitment actaully end up with strong network in a given industry\nExample Let us say you become a recruiter in telecom , after 8 years in\nthe field, you will actually have a thick network of people in the Telecom\ndomain and would be still doing recruitment ,but will make money since you\nwill be in a position to hire easily across all levels both junior and\nsenior\n\nRecruitment pathway in a corporate sector like a company ,is where one can\neven become Head of Recruitment\nbut as freelancers , contract recruiters there is no path way , and no\ntitle\nthe only thing one gain is experience ,and good network\n\nFrom recruitment to other verticals of HR may be a bit of a challenge ,\nbecause experience counts and one has to have experience to get in fields\nof HR generalist or Business Partner or Talent Management\n\nPayroll and Compensation does not require finance knowledge\nYou should be knowing Indian Tax structure and Laws related to salary\n,labor laws ,like Gratuity , PF, govt mandated benefits\n\nPayroll and compensation is a field ,where mostly the work is done by high\nend software\nbut it is one of the niche filed in HR , where one has to have complete\nknowledge of Tax and its impact on employees and the benefits and its\nimpact on employees\nexample Medical Insurance , meal vouchers ,the new maternity benefits ,\nthe limits to each tax bracket.\n\nthe most challenging part is ,the tax regulations keep changing every\nyear,so people also need to keep themselves abreast of the current trends\nin the market\n\nIf you really want to get into HR and also grow in it , take up courses from\nHRCI like SPHR https://www.hrci.org/\nSHRM like SHRM SCP https://www.hrci.org/\nSHRM distance course \nhttps://www.hrci.org/\nSHRM Hewitt course https://www.hrci.org/\nSHRM are reputed organizations , but a bit costly , which will give you\ncertificate and the certificate carries weight age in the HR world\n\nHope this helps\n\n\n\nBest Regards,\nMehnaz Amjad *PMP,SHRM SCP ,ITILv3*\nPh :+91 9177400155\n\n\n
