Human resource students from  across New York State competed in the recent New York State SHRM Student Case Competition This “realistic job preview” enables team members to leverage their course knowledge and apply it to a real-life HR situation. During the competition, each team analyzed and solved a business case by preparing a 15-minute oral presentation, which required integrated HR thinking, ethical decision-making, and strong communication and presentation skills. Preliminary and final oral presentation rounds were judged onsite by a panel of certified SHRM members. 


Five teams, comprised of undergraduate and graduate students from schools across the state, competed in the Case Competition on April 13, 2018 at St. John Fisher College. The winning team from was SUNY Geneseo, with Ithaca College taking second place. 


“SHRM’s state-wide Student Case Competitions offer a unique opportunity for HR students to apply in-class learning to real-world HR scenarios and showcase their knowledge to seasoned HR practitioners,” said Susan Post, SHRM-SCP, east divisional director at SHRM. These local events also enhance students’ perspectives on the value and importance of what it means to be a member of the HR community and career partners with SHRM as they embark on their HR professional pursuits.”
