Talking Business.

We are about preparing students for real business.
About Us

Established in 1981, Portland State University Human Resource Management Association has been helping prepare many students to step out into the real world with appropriate knowledge, skills, and the confidence to be successful. 


We are also a community that learns together, grows together, and succeeds together. We frequently invite alumni, who are currently working in the HR field, to come back and share their stories and experience with our current members. In addition,  they also offer many opportunities for informational interview, connections, as well as job openings to us.


As an open community, we welcome everyone to join us. We respect every individual regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, etc.

Come meet with us!

Anyone is welcome to join our weekly meetings whether you are a member or not. Come join us for guest speakers, networking, case studies, and more!

Tuesdays, 4:15 - 5:15pm
