The New Professional Acheivement Program Will Make You More Marketable!


This new program applies to all HRM majors and will be discussed at the Orientation on September 8th.

The program utilizes MIS technology (e-portfolios) to enhance your professional development as an HRM student! Sure, GPA matters, but professionalism and relationship building is equally significant to your success at Fox and thereafter. Your e-portfolio will help you track points, which you can receive for different activities and involvement within Fox and through TUSHRM.

Click on this link below to view an entire list of every activity you can receive points for: 

HRM students will be required to gain at least 125 points each semester starting this fall 2014. Don’t worry though, with involvement in TUSHRM, you should easily acquire those 125 points in no time and the SHRM officers and advisers are here to help you get involved, have some fun, learn a little in that process, and ensure your success!

Attached is a flyer that explains the point system in greater detail:
