Service Learning

With one of my degrees being in Marketing and the other in Human Resources Management I have done a few service learning projects, from designing a training program for a company to mapping out a complete marketing plan.

I like working with organizations around the Lansing area versus the professor saying “Here is an imaginary company, do A B and C for it.” Through this class and my past experiences it is my understanding that service learning projects are a key aspect of academies and professional development. It helps students establish themselves as a contributing member of the Lansing community. It has helped me network within my “what I want to be when I grow up” profession.

The only apprehension I have about this project is not pleasing the client. I’m always afraid that the client won’t like the finished project. However, it is volunteer work and I know as long as I put 100% of my into the project then there isn’t much more I can do.

Strategies to Ensure Consistent Language Choices

I will become a professional member of Society of Human Recourses Management (SHRM). This will allow me to connect with other HR professionals and keep in the know of the latest HR 4-1-1.

I will get necessary accreditations which will come along with participating in continuing education.

After doing the above two things I will make sure to pass my knowledge onto the rest of the HR department. I will then make sure the rest of the company has an understanding (as much understanding as they need) of the language of the HR department.
