As a MHRM student, a question I get asked a lot is "What made you want to get into HR?" So, here we go. I came to Ohio State as an undergraduate in Engineering. I had a rough couple semesters when I realized thatengineering was not for me. So I started looking into the business school, and once I finished my general courses I had to choose my specializations. My choices? Operations Management or HR. I picked Operations Management.
This past week I started my internship position with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Parks and Recreation (it's a mouthful, I know). The thing that really attracted me to the position was the flexibility with hours and the fact that they are willing to let me do anything and everything I want in terms of getting more human resources experience.
