Every week after our regular meetings and every other week instead of a the SHRM meetings, you can choose to stop by and look over the Human Resource Management 8th Edition which will help prepare students to become PHR(Professional in Human Resources) certified. Dr. Charles J. Capps III, SPHR(Senior Professional in Human Resources) has offered to help students with the exam. Suggested retail for this book is 7$, but it can be found on a variety of sites for 4-17$ depending on the condition. The test for the certification costs 120$ for students, $250 for non-student SHRM memebers and $300 for HR professionals. Below I have listed all the information needed to find the book along with a picture.(These events are strictly for your benefit and do not count towards attendance for graduation cords.)
