On March 9th, our SHRM members volunteered the La Jolla Community Clean Up with I Love a Clean San Diego and Councilmember Barbara Bry in stenciling storm drains and cleaning up the community. The same day, our members Kelly Huynh and Katherine MacKenzie attended the Diversity Career Conference. The conference geared towards students who identify with communities that are historically underrepresented in professional settings, such as communities of color, military veterans, the LGBTQ community, and those with disabilities. On March 12th, we had Corporate Recruiters Allison KuyKendall and Samantha Strodel from Medix to speak about tips and tricks on successfully entering the workforce.

On March 20th, our members had a great time networking with new members and professionals at the San Diego SHRM March Member Mixer at Brian Malarkey’s Green Acre. On March 23rd, our SHRM SDSU student chapter was invited to table at Explore SDSU to represent the Business Village. Many of our members volunteered their time to share their passion and knowledge for human resources to incoming SDSU freshmen and transfer students and practice their recruiting skills to encourage future students to join our SHRM student chapter for the upcoming Fall semester. On March 26th, we had the pleasure of having Mark Lindner, General Manager of MillerCoors, speak about how your personal branding can help you close the deal.
