The two Martha and Spencer Love School of Business students earned their Society for Human Resource Management Certified Professional designations.
Faith Carroll ’20 and Jillian Duffy ’20, both human resource management majors, recently passed the competency-based Society for Human Resource Management Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) examination, indicating they hold a high level of human resources knowledge and understand how to apply that knowledge for an organization.
The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is the largest global professional association and network for HR professionals. Its certification program is based on the current HR landscape, focusing on the competencies and knowledge HR professionals need in order to lead in today’s business community.
The Martha and Spencer Love School of Business’ Human Resource Management Career Track aligns with SHRM’s HR curriculum standards. Elon also hosts a SHRM student chapter advised by Associate Professor of Management Brian Lyons.
“I am very proud these students earned the SHRM-CP designation,” Lyons said. “Research has shown that more employers are demanding that their applicants possess HR certification prior to joining their workforce. Consequently, by earning such HR certification prior to graduation, these students are elevating their status within an employer’s applicant pool.”
