LER Student Team Preps for 2015 SHRM Case Competition
A team of LER/HRER students are getting ready for the 2015 Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) Northeast Regional Student Conference and Case Competition, March 20 and 21 in Baltimore.
The Penn State team is the defending Northeast Regional Champions and will defend their title against 27 teams from other universities. Penn State’s victory last year was no accident, as the team spent countless hours preparing for the competition, including a number of practice sessions where LER faculty played the roles of judges and provided feedback to the team members. As champions they won $2,500 and an invitation to the National SHRM Conference in Orlando, which the team attended.
Making up the 2015 team are Thomas Agosta, Matthew Body, Sara Bolwing, Megan Flaherty, Brandon Krieder, and Julie McClarnon, with Haley Guay and Meagan Wright serving as alternates. Professor Tom Hogan, an active member of SHRM and holder of the SPHR, GPHR certifications, serves as the team’s faculty adviser.
The conference provides students with several professional development opportunities including workshops, career development mentoring, and networking. We wish the team the best of luck!
