Human Resource Associate Option
Be that essential person. Human Resource professionals help companies find, hire, and keep the most effective employees. As an HR associate, you might specialize in a specific HR department (payroll, benefits, safety, etc), work with a small HR team, or (depending on the size of the company) you might manage HR all on your own! You could:
- Explain company procedures and benefits to new employees, including details on vacation and sick leave
- Develop training presentations
- Initiate, organize, maintain and store personnel records for a business or corporation
- Manage issues, problems, and/or crisis situations in the workplace
This 20-month option features creative, practical training. You can expect lots of hands-on projects, as well as learning and networking opportunities with visiting HR professionals. To make sure you have experience you’ll need, we also require a credited internship or final (capstone) project equivalent.
