Hi All,
I am from India. A friend of mine is working as Business Analyst(Finance Vertical) with a small S/W Firm for the last 6 months, after completing education. She is set to relocate as she is getting married soon. As a result, she may not be able to continue with the same job. FYI : She is an MBA(Finance). She is equally inclined towards Finance and HR.
Given this background, which career path would be better, considering the opporunities :

Option A : Look for a "Business Analyst" Position elsewhere straightaway?

Option B : Look for a HR Position elsewhere straighaway?

Option C : Get trained on some Functional Stuff (SAP, Oracle for
example) and then build a career?

I welcome valuable suggestions. Any other Options other than the above, that may be worth considering is also welcome.
I appreciate your help.

I would suggest Business Analyst. By the way where is she going to relocate? Mumbai is best for Finance related domain.

Buiness analyst is good as she did mba & have technical background .
i think HR task is boaring & monotonus,but get more free time for personnel life,less tensions.
SAP need to relocate to client place for short terms/long terms ,as she is getting marrid soon so SAP not good option.
