On Nov. 16, SHRM club members visited both Sears and Nielsen companies in Schaumburg, Illinois. We heard from some great HR managers and even a Senior VP of HR. Afterwards, SHRM members joined up with students from other Krannert clubs and Purdue alumni for a networking gala in downtown Chicago at the Accenture office. Purdue Alum, Don Thompson who is the CEO of McDonald’s was in attendance and gave an outstanding speech regarding the worldwide economic situation and its impact on his business. These are the type of events that make us all so proud to be a part of Purdue and Krannert.
