Professor Libba Moore invited Nichols Alumni with careers in Human Resource to explain what their jobs in HR entail. Students benefit from making the connection between classroom material and real life experience. Professor Moore brought in Jennifer Fisher from Crabtree & Evelyn, Jason Dekow from Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Jason Monteiro from eClinicalWorks.
Each HR professional took on a panel of 7 to 10 students. During the panel sessions, students were able to ask any questions about Human Resource issues. The Alumni answered a variety of questions from hiring and firing, to handling issues in the workplace.
After the panel session, the Alumni were asked to sit down and give advice on Human Resource, what they look for in potential students, and how to stand out from others in hiring. The key for interviews is preparation and research.
