News from the San Diego State University SHRM Chapter

 by Angelica Prout, SHRM SDSU President

Happy 2019! We finished the year strong with our case competition team winning the 2018 CalSHRM Case Competition and holding officer elections to install a new team to lead us through the spring semester. I am excited to announce our officers for this semester: President: Angelica Prout, Vice President: Xala Glover-Pamittan, Secretary: Kelly Huynh, Treasurer: Lorena Espinosa, Marketing & Media Director: Nicole Torres, College of Business Representative: Danilo Urquia, Events Coordinator: Julia Denbaugh, SD SHRM Liaison: Kimi Railey, Information Systems: Katherine Mackenzie, Development Director: Marissa Bass, Corporate Relations: Suzette Kaminski, Member Relations: Luis Rodriguez, Alumni Relations: Hallie Roberts, Historian: Jessica Nash-Odom. I am excited to work with our new team and can’t wait to see what our officers will accomplish this semester!

On December 12th, SHRM SDSU members Luis RodriguezAlexis Conde, Hallie Roberts, Kylie Bergen, Xala Glover-Pamittan, Angelica Prout, and Vincent Young attended the San Diego SHRM Membership Holiday Mixer at the future home of the Comic-Con Museum in Balboa Park. Our members enjoyed the great food, venue, raffle prizes, and networking.

On January 16th, I had to opportunity to attend San Diego SHRM’s Breakfast Program “Transform Your Life and Business with the Ideal Conversational Cocktail” with Dr. Elizabeth Fried. With engaging exercises, the audience learned how to create better interactive questions that captivate people’s attention and encourage more meaningful conversations.

Looking ahead to this semester, we are thrilled to have many professional events planned for our students. On February 12th, we will begin the semester with our Spring Kick-Off, sharing the benefits of being involved with the SHRM student chapter as well as being involved with San Diego SHRM. Our guest speaker at this event will be Andrew Esparza, SHRM SDSU’s Executive-in-Residence. The theme for our efforts this semester is “Student to Professional” with events including Resumania with Allison Kuykendall, a Personal Branding/Negotiation Skills workshop with Mark Lindner, alumni mentoring, our 6th Annual HR Professional Mentoring Event, and attending the 2019 SHRM Annual Conference and Exposition in Las Vegas this summer.  

Our 6th Annual HR Professional Mentoring Event will take place on Tuesday, April 16th from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. We are very excited for this highly anticipated mentoring event and cannot wait to network with San Diego HR professionals! During this event, students have the opportunity to connect with HR professionals in 6-minute intervals to ask questions and learn more about this amazing field. As a mentor, you are able to serve as a resource to students, helping them to hone their networking skills, giving your perspective on HR, and/or offering quick advice on how they can prepare now to enter the field. We always look forward to having SD SHRM members participate in this event! If you would like to serve as a mentor and/or would like more information about this event, please contact me at

As the semester is coming to a start, students are now looking for internships and job opportunities. If you are planning on hiring HR intern(s) and/or have upcoming HR job opportunities and would like to publicize them among our SHRM SDSU membership, please email our Development Director at
