I’m so excited to meet Jennifer McClure at the annual SHRM conference this year – June 17th through 20th in Chicago. I chose to interview Jennifer because she is an inspiration to me at this point in my career. I am a member of the DisruptHR Buffalo planning committee, in a new role as an external recruiter, and a first time attendee of the annual SHRM conference, so her insights below were so wonderful! The amazing speakers are one of the awesome reasons you should attend #SHRM18 this year. I hope to see you there!

I like to help out students at my alma mater where I received my Bachelor’s degree – the University at Buffalo School of Management. A few times a year they host amazing events I like to be a part of such as “Coffee Cup Conversations” (kind of like speed dating between students and professionals) and “Career Passport Conference” where I present to groups of students on what I did during my time at UB and after, to establish my career.
