The Society for Human Resource Management at Nicholls State University (SHRM@NSU) is a student chapter member of the Society for Human Resource Management and is associated with the Bayou SHRM. SHRM promotes mutually beneficial interaction between students and practitioners. Membership offers students the opportunity to supplement their classroom education with real-world knowledge and hands-on experience. SHRM@NSU has regular meetings, usually bi-monthly, with scheduled programs designed to help members learn more about HR and the real world of business and to network with one another and with HR professionals.
Internships are strongly encouraged for upper-level students. Employers both in the local and national markets have hired our student interns nearing the completion of their degree. This hands-on experience allows students to reinforce what they have learned and get a jump start on their career.
