Last Saturday, Spring Educational Services’ partnership with The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM-Atlanta) brought great success as over 30 high school and college students joined to expand their skills in the professional world. The workshop included why and how-toes of LinkedIn usage, an individual one-hour session with three different human resources professionals, and a panel of five speakers from various departments. The one-on-one sessions allowed students to get advice on the content of their resumes and develop themselves for their desired jobs. Moreover, the LinkedIn presentation offered the students steps in using the application, creating a pathway to their “personal brand,” and discovering their strengths. Finally, the panelists shared key steps into discovering their passions and upheld the motivations that drove them to success. The students were then able to have lunch with over twenty volunteer HR resources and the panel speakers, which allowed them to form new connections, ask further questions, and advance their network.
