Human Resource Management (HRM) Career Cafe

The goal of the HRM Career Cafe is to foster interaction between HR professionals/employers, WIU alumni/faculty, and current/prospective human resource management (HRM) students. This event is a "must attend event" for students who want to learn more about opportunities in this exciting field, and alumni and organizations seeking a talented pool of human resource management interns or graduates.

HRM Program at WIU-QC is the only one of its kind in the Quad Cities which offers both a HRM Major and HRM Minor and boasts a comprehensive HR curriculum which has been recognized by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) for being aligned with their guidelines. Many students have also passed the Assurance of Learning and PHR Certifications offered from SHRM prior to graduation to further demonstrate their understanding of HR principles and practices. Furthermore, the WIU College of Business and Technology is fully accredited by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, which ensures that students receive a rigorous, up-to-date professional education. AACSB International is the largest and most prestigious accrediting organization for management education in the world and offers assurance that our accredited business school provides a high-level business education. We look forward to seeing you on October 3!
