Week 8: Human Resources
March 8th 2017
Notetakers: Monique and Devon
HI welcome back from break week. Some of the students call it not reading week or project
week. That is why I get mine out of the way early. Welcome back good to have you back!
FYI for those of you that are unclear, not that it’s a big deal but it’s week 8 officially. Your grades
are on slate. Today you can see how bonus marks were incorporated I also want to give you an
opportunity to give me feedback anonymously on a start/stop/continue sheet.
I’m also introducing the assignment today and our entire day and focused on chapter 5. If I
wrote on your exam ‘see me’, please do. i'd love to rectify the groups if there are any issues.
Career Services will join us in week 10 or 11 bring in your resume and this will be a good
opportunity. The services what are offered here are superior, they have optimum software that
helps you prepare. I'm willing to give you my class time for that.
HRSA on March 14th from 11-3. This is a great opportunity to network as we’ve talked about.
There will be lots of associations and government agencies you can speak to and get a feel.
Wear something nice and make a good first impression. You're not looking for a job tomorrow
but this is a good opportunity for you to take the beginning steps.
Any questions? Back to the schedule. We’re at the midway point we have 3 more chapters and
3 more bonus quizzes, one more assignment and one final exam. Your assignment is due week
13 and the assignment is number 2, worth 15% Of your grade. one group assignment for the
group you're working with or if you need a new group see me.
Go to Slate for a moment and let's walk through the expectations here. Overall everyone did
well on assignment one but we could improve. A lot of the improvements are around APA
citation and formatting. I have your rubrics here if you haven't received them.
Assignment 2 is based on recruitment and selection. This is under content> assignments >
assignment 2 in slate.
You're asked to find a job advertisement anywhere you want, online or in a newspaper or
anything, maybe linkedin. Find a job advertisement not a description. Your group will take this
ad and based on content of course we will critique it. We will discuss effective characteristics of
a job advertisement next week. I’d like you to keep the job at a level where you or your peers
would apply to. I want you to appreciate and understand it.
Within that ad we will highlight two critical skills or qualities the company will be looking for.
Selection criteria. Those help us determine a selection process. This will make more sense after
chapters 5 and 6. We will discuss recruitment methods as well.
