Interesting question and thank you for asking this question.
Firstly please note that here in India, majorly the corporates do not much differentiate between a Public Administrator and an HR. They corelate both the fields. Many a times, we also notice that few corporates describe an HR job as an Admin job. Though admin is a part of the job, but HR is a role in itself.
As such please note that both a Public Administrator and an HR both are into managing people and their related issues.
But a Public Administrator unit , helps building a public unit / agency that addresses public issues. In-Short they are the face of the people, as they work for the public being at the head that is at government organization or an NGO etc.
They may focus also on certain financial issues as well as create budget too. They can be addressing different sectors right from:
Though an HR works mainly in the particular corporate that hires them for benefiting the employees.
Hope this helps
Wish you good luck....
Public Administration and HRM are two different things and career options.
Public Administration is highly government oriented career option where you will be employed in government departments, secretariats, ministries, etc. You will be working under the department head may be a IAS officer or a gazattee officer. There are courses in Public Administration / Public Policy / Political Science.
HRM is all about Human resource management, development, training. Of course there are positions in HRM in government jobs as well but very limited.
HRM is mostly with the private sector and semi private sector. In this you will be dealing with payroll, recruitment, training, appraisals, etc of the employees / staff of the concerned organisation you work with.
Choosing between the two is not easy though, however I would suggest you to take the Ideal Career Test from CareerGuide.com which will help you know your real aptitude, interests, likings and passion.
