Why Join the Society of Human Resource Management Student Club?
Weber State University’s chapter of Society for Human Resource Management, commonly referred to as SHRM, is designed to help students to fully and competitively enter the career field by providing leadership, service, experience, and effective networking with current Human Resource Managers in Northern Utah. This competitive advantage has insured 100% of graduating students a job placement in the career field.
