Student Resources

Welcome!

This page is a resource for students or anyone who looking to connect with people in the HR industry. I’ve listed the folks and organizations I rely upon, and in many cases, have a friendship with.

Make the most of this list. Connect with everyone!

*On LinkedIn, don’t send a generic invitation. Tell them you are a student seeking to develop your network. Need advice on how to write this? Click here. 

Know Your Strengths:

I usually mention the Gallup Strength Finder assessment in presentations. If you get the opportunity, take this assessment and begin working towards your strengths. Remember that you are much more inclined to be engaged with your work and make the most of your natural talent when you work with your strengths (as opposed to worrying about your weaknesses)!

Here is a link to get you started with Strength Finder:
