Bryce Stotler

Junior Human Resource Management major, Bryce Stotler, is a member of the QC campus Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). Several SHRM members attended the 2018 Krannert HR Executive Dinner & Case Competition. Bryce received the individual award for Undergraduate Best Responder for Q&A. He is very glad to have shared this fun experience with others who are willing to work so hard.

"The HRM program here at WIU gives students the opportunity to conduct a job analysis, build a job description, and give presentations that mirror what we might find in the workforce. This experience gives us a template to what comes next in whatever stage of life follows after graduation. HRM also has a great network that helps students grow until they can help those who come behind them. "
