Current graduate degree student Amanda Bergdorf was chosen to present her research on Social Media in Human Resources at the annual Central Illinois Chapter of Society for Human Resource Management Conference on November 20. “I am so honored and excited to share my research with the SHRM group because of how relevant this topic is.
