Over the weekend I attended one of my fellow classmates, Karina Ribeiro Teixeira, birthday celebration. Karina is a first-year international student from Brazil in the MHRM program and we also work together in the Graduate Program Office together. She and her husband were gracious enough to host us at their home and share some traditional Brazilian food, drinks, and music with us.Karina set up a beautiful spread for us to share our meal, take home key-chains included!

A few weeks ago, I kicked off my final semester of the Fisher MHRM program! In the new year I have decided to take on any practical application opportunities that come my way throughout the next 14 weeks. Which is why I would like to share a recent experience I volunteered to take part in.A new and exciting event for me was working with a group of full time MBA students facilitating a coaching & feedback session for their new semester core teams.

A few weeks ago, the MHRM program held its very own Friendsgiving! It was graciously hosted by one of our working professional MHRM students, Scott Bassett, and the evening was filled with tons of food, drinks, and laughter. These events are especially important as we head into finals in the upcoming weeks.

Network, Network, Network...as students we hear this all the time from our bosses, our professors, and our parents. What is Networking anyways? Merriam Webster defines networking as "the exchange of information or services among individuals, groups or institutions" specifically for "the cultivation of productive relationships for employment or business". Expanding on this definition, I consider networking not only for employment purposes but as a channel for learning and development. Many individuals network to establish a mentor or to expand their skill set.
