I Decided That Now Was the Time
The following blog post was originally shared on SHRM.org. We at SoDakSHRM are proud of all our members who have taken the time to study for and take an HR certification exam! If you aren't currently certified, read through Briana Heuston's story and perhaps it will help convince you!
In May, at the South Dakota SHRM State Council's 2018 conference in Deadwood, I joined a conversation with other attendees about the SHRM certification program. When I mentioned to regional SHRM Field Services Director Nancy Conway, SHRM-SCP, that I was currently studying for my SHRM-CP, she told me to keep her posted. In June I took and passed the exam! I e-mailed Nancy, who encouraged me to share this story.
