The Indiana County Area (ICA) SHRM participates in several events throughout the year as follows:
We work with the Indiana County Technology Center and local high schools as part of the Alliance for Business and Education Leadership (A.B.E.L.) Student Mentoring Program. The purpose of the program is to prepare student participants with the skills, abilities, and knowledge necessary to make good career choices and find new and innovative ways to lead young people to productive careers. Professionals in Accounting, Public Relations, Marketing, Insurance, Real Estate, Information Systems and Technology, and operations provide on the job mentoring to area high school students. The students also participate in a competition at the end of the year for which ICA SHRM awarded a $500 scholarship to the winner in the Spring of 2011.
In addition, many of our members participate in a speed interviewing process at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP). ICA members act as prospective employers to help students prepare for interviews after graduation.
Last year KH Controls, Inc. facilitated tours for the technical students from four area high schools to provide career awareness advice for students interested in careers such as electrical and mechanical engineering, electronics and mechanical Auto-CAD, and electronics test technician.
