Find your shadow!
HR students in the USA SHRM Student Chapter would like to shadow you
to gain insight into what is involved in human resource management.
Shadowing offers students an up-close look inside a workplace, by
providing an opportunity to spend work time with an HR professional.
Students observe the application of specific HR practices, but more
importantly observe professional behavior in the workplace.
HR professionals will be matched to students based on students’ interest
in your industry or HR specialty. Shadowing can last from a half
day to two full days, based on your schedule. To participate in
the showing program, please e-mail Dr. Marjorie Icenogle (firstname.lastname@example.org),
who will put you in contact with one or two students.
