    SHRM Student Chapters in Maryland

    SHRM provides opportunities for college students to learn about the HR profession and to network on the local level through affiliated student chapters. Student chapters have regular meetings with programs designed to help members learn more about HR and the real world of business.

    Elected student officers run the chapters with the assistance of a chapter advisor and sponsoring professional SHRM chapter members. Chapters invite local business people and other professionals to speak to the members on topics relevant to the HR profession. Beyond the regular meetings, chapters organize and participate in a variety of activities including company tours, student conferences, resume-writing and interviewing workshops, fundraisers, internship programs, and social events. These activities allow students to learn more about human resource management while building relationships with local professionals and other students.

    Save the date --  Wednesday, October 15, 7 to 9 PM, is set for this year’s SHRM student chapter event, “Real World Pathways to the Job You Want.” The program, at the Catonsville campus of the Community College of Baltimore County, will enable HR students and chapter leaders to gain insights into the professional from outstanding guest speakers and to network with HR professionals.  What can you as chapter leaders do to support this event?

    • Publicize within your chapters and student chapters you sponsor or work with.
    • Attend and network with the students.  We especially need round-table discussion leaders.
    • Encourage HR students to attend.  Offer to drive one or more of them if transportation is an issue.
    • Make a monetary donation from your chapter.  All donations will support the students.  Any amount is appreciated and can be structured as a scholarship contribution.
