HR Games Area One Results (2002 results)


Resumes of Participants:  We will be putting together a resume book to be distributed to the HR Professionals at the games.  Contestants should email me their resumes in Microsoft Word format by 4/1/2003. 


Dress Code: Most teams wear a Golf shirt with their school logo with slacks. There is no dress code but you should aim for business casual. Suits not necessary. Jeans discouraged.

All participants must subscribe to the HR Games Area One email list to receive confirmation of their registration and other information.  To subscribe send an email from the address you want subscribed to:  Expect about 10 messages per year from January through April.  Unsubcribing is easy  and information is available at the bottom of each message.  All of this information will be available on this web site if you choose to be responsible for retrieving it instead of having it emailed to you.


Fourteen teams will be able to participate in the Area I HRGames Competition.  The first 16 teams to submit the registration form will participate.  Undergraduate students who are SHRM national members by the time of the competition and have a graduation date later than December 1, 2002, are eligible to participate.


The competition will use a "Jeopardy" style format with teams of three (3) undergraduate students.  The teams will compete over several rounds to determine who will represent Area I in the national competition in Orlando, FL, June  2003. The winner of the Area I competition will compete against the winners from the other 5 SHRM Areas.  Arrangements are being made to pay the expenses of the teams who participate in Orlando.
