About the HR Emerging Professionals (formerly HR Young Professionals) Special Interest Group: SOCT SHRM has initiated this Special Interest Group to better serve the needs of HR Emerging Professionals (HREM’s)* and increase the Chapter’s responsiveness to their unique needs. The chapter conducted a focus group and survey of this demographic group and has launched a new initiative to offer special benefits to those who participate. The chapter will explore offering activities focused on topics of interest to HREM’s such as career development, overview of the HR Generalist role, tips on certification for the PHR/SHPR, networking opportunities, information on benchmarking, discussions with other experienced HR professions, and more.

We would love feedback (email addresses below) on the following topics…
1. Professional development topics of interest.
2. Event ideas
3. Mentorship Program…Would you like to be able to talk to another HR Emerging Professional who can act as a Mentor to you? Think about how great that could be–a sounding board, someone who could offer advice, answer questions, talk about their experience. If so, send us an email to let us know! The chapter has put together a program to match you up with another HR Emerging professional. It’s a great opportunity!
4. Other suggestions to enhance the group.
Feel free to share this note and let us know if we should add anyone to our mailing list. We will advise you of the venue for our upcoming events and look forward to seeing you there!
