East Carolina University Student Chapter
The Society for Human Resource Management's Student Program was created in 1965 to promote mutually beneficial interaction between HRM students and practitioners. Since the first chapter was chartered more than 40 years ago, the student program has experienced tremendous growth. The program now includes over 250 affiliated student chapters and more than 19,000 student members.
The East Carolina University student chapter is comprised of 60 students who are seeking a degree in the field of Human Resource Management. The student chapter meets monthly on the campus of East Carolina University and is also an active participant in the monthly meetings and activities sponsored by NCCSHRM.
There are a large number of perks involved with membership, but getting started with a student SHRM chapter is just the beginning. Students can also leverage the power of Society for Human Resource Management student chapters in North Carolina into professional membership after graduation; this membership will continue to link them nationally with HR professionals, helping them guide their career toward increasing success over time.
