The #UCFBusiness Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) student chapter was recognized for excellence at the recent HR Student Games State-Level Case Competition.

Team members included Kelvin Randolph, Yan Tarnowicz, Alexis Piedra, and Cori Sims.

Their strong performance earns them the honor of competing with 13 other undergraduate teams at the East-Division Regional Case Competition on March 20-21, 2015.

Teams of two to six students collaborated with their teammates within a four hour timeframe to present the solution to a problem within a fictitious company. The teams made a 15-minute oral presentation and submitted a two-page executive written summary to a panel of diverse professional volunteer judges.

“Through our organization I have learned that collaboration, innovation, proactivity and vision are all critically important for success. Our teamwork and creative thinking abilities have given us the opportunity to compete at the next level, and I couldn’t be more thrilled,” said Cori Sims, president of the #UCFBusiness chapter of SHRM.

SHRM is an undergraduate and graduate service chapter that promotes education, networking and leadership opportunities for human resource majors, business majors and non-business majors. The board of officers strive to provide the best connections on campus and in the community to help students find job placement, internships, volunteer opportunities and overall experience to differentiate themselves in the talent pool. Throughout the semester, the organization invites local business professionals from various backgrounds to share their knowledge of current and upcoming trends that will affect the future professional. Outside of meetings, SHRM members attend local professional meetings, HR FL State Council and SHRM conferences.
