In this episode, I have a wonderful conversation with a former student and TRU HR graduate who recently secured his first HR role. Dean Lemphers graduated in the spring of 2020 with a BBA with a major in Human Resource Management. This episode is part one of our conversation and in it, he shares the key factors that made him successful in securing his first HR job just months after graduation.
Here is a summary of Dean's advice (in my own words):
As I say in our conversation, I love so much that he was able to create an opportunity for himself by being a nice guy. A lot of people believe that you need to be cut throat or aggressive to get ahead in the world and get the best jobs, but his experience shows that being nice, considerate and thoughtful of others can pay off.
If you want some assistance in connecting to create opportunities in your job search, be sure to listen to Episode 8 - The Power of Connections and download the free Informational Interview guide. There I provide you with everything you need to take the same steps Dean took to be successful.
If you would like to connect with Dean as a fellow HR graduate you can find him on LinkedIn using this link.
