Turning A Passion for People Into A Career – Human Resource Management

From generalists to specialists, Human Resource Management is a top field to get involved in if you have an interest in working and developing employees in businesses of all sizes. As a continuation of our Program Feature of the Month, for May we are introducing a program at Peirce College that is full of possibilities: Human Resource Management.

Human Resource Management students at Peirce will gain practical experience through simulations, case studies, and hands-on work with the latest industry technology. They will have the option to go into careers such as human resource generalist, benefits and administration, recruiting and organizational development, training and employee development and more! With the opportunity to earn your Bachelor of Science in Human Resource Management, you are also directly positioned to go on and earn your Master of Science in Organizational Leadership and Management from Peirce.

In addition to being a part of a program which includes courses accredited by The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), students also will be participating in a curriculum that directly aligns with the competencies for human resource professionals spelled out by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). Plus, program graduates are prepared to sit for professional and senior professional SHRM certifications. Peirce offers the only program of its kind in the region!

While gaining the classroom skills, students will also have the opportunity to take their education outside the classroom. Students can join SHRM as an active member and not only gain team and leadership experience, which is crucial for your career, but also take part in activities such as human resources educational and networking events. The most recent one was held on Tuesday, May 8, 2018 in New York City. Peirce’s SHRM Chapter traveled to the Plaza Hotel to listen and learn from speakers ranging from licensed New York attorneys to successful CEO's who spoke with the attendees on career engagement and lessons learned in their years of career experience.

One of the most well-known speakers in attendance was Pro Football Hall of Fame member and Dancing with the Stars Alum, Jason Taylor. Taylor spoke to the group on leadership and leading from the present into the future. He provided his secrets for success and spoke of resiliency and adversity, which resonated with the audience members, especially our Peirce students. Jason Taylor left the audience with a strong piece of advice saying, “Good leaders put people in a position to succeed. They provide support, resources, and training.”

Events such as this one with inspirational leaders and speakers like Jason Taylor are just one reason potential students should consider joining the Human Resource Management program at Peirce College. There is so much to gain as you develop and grow into your desired career.
