Building Your Story Through HR Competencies & Experiences   

At Ohio University, we want you to engage with us through our experiential learning, creative activity, and leadership opportunities so you can build your professional toolbelt, advance your career, and inspire better workplaces.  

Imagine you’re listening to two people selling themselves to a recruiter or manager at the end of an interview.

The first candidate says, “I am the best candidate for this position because I am a people person and have a passion for HR.”

The second candidate says, “I am the best candidate for this position because I will make an immediate, positive impact within your company through all of my experiences and skills gained in the HR certificate program and SHRM student chapter. I sharpened my relationship-building skills through our networking trip, where we interacted with over 50 executives and alumni. My team recruited five students and reached over 1,000 students during a recruitment and consulting project for a live client in my HR introductory course, and I provided data-driven solutions in my HR internship. Additionally, I earned my SHRM professional certification during my senior year. Because of those hands-on experiences and skills developed, I commit to increasing collaborations with managers to help build and train their team. I will resolve employee issues while preserving relationships, and I will listen to all employee concerns and analyze all data before suggesting solutions to workplace challenges.”

Which candidate would you want to hire? We can help you build your story and tell it like the second candidate.
