What is the best way to get into a human resouce generalist position?

For the last 4 months, I have submitted endless resumes to the online databases such as,, and Also, applied online to large to mid size companies in the Baltimore, MD area from commerical to government jobs. My qualifications: BS in Information Systems Management 5 years as a database analyst 2 years as a senior recruiter As a senior recruiter, it's more of a sales job. I want more career growth and responsibility at this point. What else do I need to do to transition from recruiter to generalist? Thinking about going back to school to get a MS in Human Resource or a MBA with specialization in Human Resource. Also, which degree would be better and any recommendation for colleges/universities. If I was to do the MBA, I would go with Loyola College. For the MS in Human Resource, I would go with Towson University but their job placement center is not resourceful or able to deliver results. Need feedback. Thanks.
