Good Interviews For Students and New HR Professionals

There’s good information here for college students considering a career in human resources or recent graduates who are in new to the field. A team of four cohosts split up interviews with guests who typically discuss their own HR careers, challenges and best practices in the sector, or practical job search advice like interview tips. Members of the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), the sponsor of the show, can also receive learning credits for listening to some episodes.
