Change from marketing to hr
Hi SK,If you mean to ask that are you eligible to work as an HR manager, then, yes you can. Have you studied HR as any of your core modules?
Again to check if your transition from marketing to HR will hold worth to your future, it is necessary to test if you have the right kind of skills to excel in the field of HR. Marketing and HR is entirely different. HR is a role that requires a person to possess, develop and demonstrate excellent soft working skills like interpersonal skills, communication skills, customer service skills and many more. So it is highly necessary to ensure if you will be the right fit into HR before you embark into this field and this could be possible with the "psychometric assessment" testing. Please spend a few minutes on this website to take this testing which will check your personality and ability to see if you are a perfect fit within the field of HR.

Sad to know that you wish to change the domain completely from Marketing to HR. Hope your decision is well informed and well thought of. Changing career domain frequently has a bad impression in the career graph.Changing from anything to anything is possible, however it requires more efforts, determination. If you have not learnt HR, then you need to get qualified in HR. Having just a subject in Marketing as HR is not enough to get a job in HR role.
An MBA or Executive MBA in HR is most recommended.
To be best sure of what suits you for your career, I would suggest you to undergo an online psychometric test from CareerGuide which will help you understand yourself in respect of your strengths, weaknesses, emotional quotient, etc. and will exactly tell you which stream is good for you.You can then call counsellors to discuss.

Hi There, Interesting to note that you wish to shift from marketing to an HR profile.
Though both deal with people, but still strategies used are different and hence it makes the transition easy as well as difficult.
But before that, the first question you need to ask yourself is, Why you wish to shift domains???Since it is not from one section to another, it is a complete shift from one department to another. A shift like this will have effects on your career. Majorly please note that, you would be counted as a fresher, since you have no experience in the HR field. Your marketing experience will not count.
Secondly, you need to ask yourself, do you have the required qualities to sustain in this field. Since you have mentioned you are an MBA in Marketing, obviously your entire focus was into marketing and its strategies. So here you need to invest time, money and energy into doing a certificate course in HR, which mainly would be a correspondence course. Thirdly, and the main question is, what are your career objective. When we choose afield, we have some ideologies fit into our mind and we wish to achieve that.So now when you shift to the HR department, what are your future prospects you wish to achieve and will you be able to sustain there lifelong.
Please note that, once you have a ready answer to the questions placed above, you can readily shift from the Marketing to the HR stream.
Hope your question has been answered.
Wish you good luck...
