I am a graduate from EEE will the recruiters consider me to be a sourcing analyst or trainee?

Thank you for giving me some clarity on my career in hr field .I have a small doubt because I am from completely different background i.e Electrical Engineering and will the recruiters allow me in that position "Sourcing Analyst" or "Trainee".Because there might be many people who have specialization or diploma in this field(HR) .

Hi,


Thanks for your query ! First of all its great that you have done your graduation from EEE.


Assuming this is your first job, the recruiters will offer you a job as a TRAINEE as you dont have experience. But later on once you get experience of 1-2 years you may be offered a job of Sourcing Analyst. However it depends on the companies requirement and your performance. So to conclude Its very difficult to directly become Sourcing Analyst. best option will be to start as a trainee and collect ample amount of knowledge and then you can go for Source Analyst. Please dont take trainee as an inferior job, because the thing you will learn as a trainee you

wont learn throughoutthe career. Hope your query was answered. Thanks. All the Best ! Rachit

Hello


Nice to hear on your interest in getting into management side of technical work. Yes, with a EEE bachelors degree, you can definitely work as a 'sourcing analyst', 'Trainee' or even a 'IT recruiter'. With your technical bachelors degree background, you are absolutely an essential candidate to work in the human resources division. I shall explain how below.


As you have a technical degree, you can work on the technical side of HR roles. That is if you are working as a sourcing analyst, you will understand the skills written on the resume by the prospective candidates and with your EEE knowledge you can match the skills with the job requirement and with that of the candidates. Your technical background will ideally help you in these ways in your HR job.

  • Sourcing analyst: As a sourcing analyst, your job involves in finding suitable resumes from the job portal databases like the Naukri, Monster or Times jobs. When you are finding suitable resumes for the vacancy post, you will understand the technical terms on the resume with your EEE knowledge, and this way you will be able to better match the candidates and bring them to an interview.
  • HR Trainee: As a HR trainee you will again do every activity as part of the HR role. This includes finding matching profiles, creating job advertisement, writing job description and many more. So with your technical knowledge, you can write effective job description that also requires some technical writing. So you will prove useful in these contexts.
  • HR Recruiter: As a trainee you will learn each of the sections one by one for may be a year. But once you complete the training you will be eligible to take up this recruiter position. As a recruiter you will be given authority to frame/ create job description that requires technical aspects.
  • IT Recruiter/ technical recruiter: After all the sourcing analyst and trainee positions, there is one popular designation in the HR department and it is known as 'IT recruiter or technical recruiter'. In these roles, people with a technical background is often needed than the ones with an MBA/ PGDM. As said with your technical background, you will better understand the technical skills required for a post whereas an MBA candidate without technical background may not be a good fit.

So I would like to assure you that with your technical background you are obviously a better fit for many of the technical HR roles. My best wishes to you. Good luck.
