Isn’t HR only for girls or for those who don’t get admission anywhere else?

Now, that’s offensive! The next thing you would be saying is that there is a tooth fairy too!

Actually, the truth of the matter is that HR used to be perceived as a ‘soft’ profession earlier, and hence there used to be an inclination towards the fairer sex.  However, HR is as competitive as any other stream of management today. There are tough targets in hiring, selection, training, appraisals, consulting etc. Men and women are on an equal footing, and compete as well as collaborate together on many fronts.

And yes, there are some who have to settle for an HR course, because they didn’t get anything ‘better’. But then, the world is full of go-getters, and that’s what we HR folks consider ourselves as.
