“Finding a job after graduation makes you feel like a small fish in a big pond – countless opportunities but hard to stand out in the crowd. With my internship through HRPA Edge, I was able to get the experience I needed to find my next role but also identify my passion for recruitment! My host organization was an amazing place to work and allowed me to bridge all the theory I learned in school with what it takes to be successful in the workplace. I am beyond thrilled to be a part of this alumni group!”
