Hey there! My name is Caroline and I’m a third year Human Resource Management student. I currently sit on the John Molson Human Resource and Management Association (JHMA) as the VP Academics for HR. In a nutshell, I’ve been responsible for answering any and all student questions related to the degree; representing the student body on the HR Undergraduate Curriculum Committee; and acting as the liaison between the CHRP and the school. Although this has been a very rewarding position I am ready to take on the challenge of being the president of JHMA. I first got involved because I realized that I was not taking full advantage of the resources that were available to me as a student. I was one of the many students that came to school for class and class only. Since joining the team, I have made a ton of new friends, I have learned more than I ever could have from just sitting in class, and I have proven to myself that I am capable of adding value to students’ lives in the CASA community.
Along with the experience that I have gathered this year, I have also been working at BDC in the HR department since May of 2019. I started with the bank in Talent Acquisition and I now support Employee Services. I truly believe that the valuable industry knowledge I’ve garnered makes me an excellent candidate for the position.
In terms of my plans for next year’s mandate, my goal is to create change and add new meaning to the association. JHMA represents one of JMSB’s smallest student populations with our total count reaching just over 900. My hope is that we can cater our events, workshops, opportunities, and support to the exact desires of the HR and Management student body. I want to create more visibility for HR and Management related opportunities on campus, I want to offer more services to the students such as a first year handbook and weekly office hours to name a few, and I want to strengthen the relationship between the student body and the faculty. If I am to be elected your president, I believe that providing added value to our University careers will be a team effort. Not only with my executive team but with you: the students. I want to know what you want - help me help you.
