No upcoming events


SHRM@QU is a local student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management. We provide students from across the University with the opportunity to gain knowledge and insight into the effective management of human capital in the field of Human Resource Management through affiliation with the New Haven Chapter, the CT State Council, and the national SHRM organization.

The objectives of this chapter include:

*Promoting the exchange of work-related experience of established business professionals with the theoretical academic perspectives of student and faculty members through open forums and information exchanges.

*Encouraging the acquisition, growth, and continuation of our respective careers in human resource management through expanded knowledge, camaraderie, respect, and mutual support among chapter members and through our affiliation with SHRM and our sponsoring chapter.

*Provide a pool of human resource management leaders for perpetuation of the chapter and of SHRM.

*Function as an important vehicle for promoting the field of human resource management to students.

Jill McKeon-Vitelli, an adjunct professor of management at QU, came to discuss the importance of project management with SHRM@QU members. Mckeon-Vitelli started her professional career as a secretary, and moved trough various positions at Dictaphone while receiving her BS in Management and Management Information Systems at the University of New Haven.  She worked full-time while receiving both her undergraduate degree and while receiving her MS at Quinnipiac. She has a PMP certification and has worked professionally as a project manager. She gave the students at QU the following advice:
Every class you take, every job you work, every volunteer activity you participate in prepares you for the next opportunity.
Mckeon explained that she never went to school for project management but every job that she did and all of her education that she had received prepared her to be a PMP. She stated that she began teaching as a college professor because her education and experience was a perfect fit. She urged students to join the Project Management Institute to receive the benefits from this site like special job postings, and urged the students to study for and take the CAPM if they had an interest in ever being a project manager.
