Please read below the eligibility criteria to become Human Resource Manager:


  • Generally a Bachelor's degree is required, preferably in business administration. In some companies and for senior positions, MBA in Human Resource is the main criteria.
  • Certification is not mandatory but if you have certification in Human Resource Management, it will be an added advantage.
  • Work experience is often an important criteria if you have not got an MBA degree. Up to five years of work experience may be required.
  • You need to focus on your interpersonal skills. While facing an interview, what kind of impression you leave on the interviewer matters a lot. And that depends a lot on how comfortable you are in interacting with others.
  • You really have to be extremely good in your communication skills. This is again an important criteria and companies do pay a lot of attention to it. Sometimes they take a language test also where your communication skills will be tested.
  • You need to have basic computer skills so that you are comfortable with using it. Also, you need to be good at using Microsoft Excel, power point and word.

Hi

Thanks for choosing Mera career guide and writing to us. I understand you would like to work as a Professor in Human Resource Management. You can work as a Professor only in education sector, meaning you can teach this subject at B-School, colleges and Universities. There are two tracks or pathways that normally people take to work as a professor.

1.You first study for a Bachelor degree (either 3 or 4 year degree) in any subject of your interest. After your Bachelors degree, you go on to study a Masters degree. If you choose to study BBA as an Undergraduate degree and then study MSc in Human Resource Management, it will be desirable. Else, you can also complete an undergraduate degree in your favourite subject and then do an MBA with HR specialization. After the Masters degree, students should apply for a PhD in HR. To gain a PhD admission offer is very competitive in India or any part of the world. Unlike Bachelors and Masters degree, PhD admission places are extremely limited. Every University will have a maximum of 10-15 places of admission each year. So, an outstanding academic record is highly essential to get a PhD admission offer. You can also take the MPhil route before you study a PhD. MPhil is a one year research degree and after completing MPhil, you will be promoted as a PhD student. Not all Universities in India have MPhil or PhD in HR. You will have to study MPhil/PhD in Management with a major in Human Resource Management. To get an admission offer for MPhil/PhD, you should have compulsorily studied a Bachelors degree and a 2 year Masters degree. This two year Masters degree could be either a MSc in HR or an MBA with HR as stated earlier. Added to this, you should have written NET exam and passed with reasonably high scores. NET exam is essential with most of the Universities in India to offer a PhD admission. This exam also helps you to give a monthly stipend for PhD students anywhere between Rs.12,000 to 18,000, depending on the University. If you are seeking stipend, NET exam score is mandatory. The NET exam is conducted twice a year in India.

So, with a Bachelors degree, a two year Masters (Msc or MBA) and NET score, you can apply for a PhD. Completing your PhD, you will initially work as a Lecturer in HR subject. You may then be promoted to Assistant Professor and then a Professor based on your experience and research achievements.

The next route to a Professor is the MBA route with considerable industry experience. For this, you are required to study a Bachelors degree, an MBA with HR as specialization and then been in the industry as a HR Manager/Senior Manager/Partner or Director. A senior position in HR with a minimum of 10-15 years work experience is considerable. After this solid industry work experience, you can opt to change your career to the education sector. You will be directly designated as either Assistant Professor or Professor in HR, based on your experience and achievements. You can also do your PhD part time at the same University you work to complement and strengthen your academic career.

hope this briefing helps.
