OSWEGO — Members of the SUNY Oswego student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management placed second in the recent annual SHRM Northeast Regional Conference and Case Competition in Providence.
The case competition challenges each team’s human resource knowledge through a focused case study.
Teams are given four hours to analyze the case, make recommendations and prepare findings through written and oral presentations to a panel of judges.
The event attracts tough competition including teams from Cornell University, Rutgers University, Seton Hill University, Pennsylvania State University, Long Island University, Marist College and other northeastern higher education institutions.
SUNY Oswego progressed to the final round and placed a hairsplitting second to the Penn State team.
The Oswego team included seniors Justin Jarvis, Rachel Filosofos, Alycia White and Kristi O’Donaghy and junior Nicole Schnorr.
In addition to the case competition, the two-day conference, April 11 and 12 this year, was packed with speakers, educational sessions, and career development and networking opportunities.
The SUNY Oswego student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management is advised by Dr. Barry Friedman, professor of management in Oswego’s School of Business, and Tammy Anderson, contract manager for professional development at the SUNY Oswego Phoenix Center.
