Below is the eligibility criteria to become a Human Resource Manager:
You can become eligible to become a Human Resource Manager through qualification first and then through experience. HR Manager is a very senior position and you will have to start your career in HR firstly by becoming a HR Executive in a company.
You should become qualified in HR by doing MBA HR after your graduation. MBA in HR is the most sought academic qualification in the industry for HR roles.
Apart from the qualification, while you are in college, you should definitely aim to improve on your Communication skills, IT skills, quantiative skills. These three skills are required for any employee today to remain in the competition and grow.
HR Manager is a designation which you can get after gaining an experience in HR field for about 5-8 years.
There are several criteria that would help you to reach a managerial position within the human resources. However, you should also understand that you are asking about a - Managerial position - and this well explains, you should first start your entry into the HR field if you have not already done so. Once you work within the HRM for at least five years, you can reach the Managerial ranks. The basic criteria to get into HR field are as indicated below:
A minimum of Bachelors degree: with this you can start roles as a Sourcing analyst or a recruiter. Recruitment is the basic and relatively easy step to get into HRM from any subject background. So if you have any basic degree, you can start a career within recruitment with any recruitment consultancies in India. Alternatively, if you are looking for a career with top firms, other than recruitment agencies, then you should have done either a BCom with HR or BBA with HR as companies will prefer recruiting candidates with HR and Management background than opting for students from other subject areas.
An MBA in HR/ PGDM in HR: With this degree, you get the key card to get into HR field and you will get roles like HR Trainee, HR Management trainee, Recruiter and so on. Most often you would get a decent HR roles with an MBA or PGDM. However if you already have had a few years of HR experience and then if you had topped up your profile with an MBA degree, then you can hope for being recruited in a managerial positions like the HR Manager.
An MSc HR course: There are many universities in India that offer an MSc in HRM and the most popular one is the IIT Kharagpur Humanities department's MSc HR course. It is highly competitive and the entry is equally tough similar to other degrees within the IIT. With an MSc degree, you can get into HR field and hope for HR Trainee, Recruiter, Payroll analyst, compensation and benefits analyst or even within learning and development.
Certified recruiter or HR courses: There are professional certified courses within HR and you may also consider them however these courses are mostly eligible to be studied only by those who already have started working within the HR field.
Executive HR PGDM courses: In case you are currently working for any company and wanted to diverge into HR, you can choose to do Executive HR management courses and the popular ones in the country are IIM Calcutta and IIM Lucknow courses known as Executive Professional program courses in HR.
Hope this helps. All the best.
