Past Events

PSU HRMA had a very successful event Tuesday night, April 16th, with Dress For Success Oregon! Our AI in the job search presentation to the DFS clients went great, and we are so proud of what we accomplished! This is truly a milestone for our student chapter and we are grateful to get to make a positive impact on our community outside of PSU.
