HRM Internships Spotlight
Ke’Shon Webb '16
As president of the Collegiate Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Club, Ke’Shon Webb was instrumental in bringing human resource experts to the St. John Fisher College campus to speak with club members. Over the course of the fall 2015 semester, Webb was able to become a human resource professional himself, albeit temporarily, through a School of Business internship.
The senior human resources management major interned at the Hillside Family of Agencies, an organization that provides health, education, and human services to disadvantaged children and their families. As part of his experience, Webb posted employment opportunities online and pre-screened resumes. Performing these and other duties reinforced his career interest in HR while giving him practical work experience in the nonprofit arena.
On target for graduation in spring 2016, Webb plans to continue his education. He would like to work toward a master’s degree in either human resource management or development, in anticipation of a career in corporate recruitment.
