Dear Aspirant, Labour Laws, Learning & Development, HR Strategy are some of the fields in which you can specialise in the HR domain. If you are not an HR MBA qualified, doing that is recommended. If you are already an MBA, then a short term executive development programme with one of the top BSchools is recommended. Switching jobs is also recommended if you want growth and change in work environment and culture. Alternatively, think for starting your own recruitment consultancy services which require very less capital but large number of contacts. Best wishes

Dear Aspirant, Firstly your question suggests that the Human Resource field you chose was itself a wrong career decision and therefore now after years you have realised that human resource is no more of interest to you and you now think of shifting to another field.

Ideally a Chartered Accountancy doing CPA course is seen and is beneficial. CFA is a different course altogether. This is not related to Accounting.
