I recently attended “Coffee & Conversation” an event coordinated by the MHRM Council that hosted program alumni who currently work in the Columbus area. They each shared their experience with the program, how they began their HR careers, and their tips to becoming a leader in the HR industry today. This event also included a lunch and networking session after the presentations.
