My goal once I finished my undergrad and passed both the SPHR and the SHRM-SCP, was to get my MBA. I completed one semester where I took Economics and then, life happened… I got married and had my two kiddos. I always intended to go back to where I left off but, in the back of my mind, I knew that I was just going for my MBA to show my commitment to further educating myself. It didn’t exactly relate to the work I did on a daily basis.
Then I discovered the MJ-LEL program at Tulane. At work, I was finding it a challenge when I needed to engage Legal to make time sensitive decisions. I had a feeling this was the right program to help me with that. What I didn’t know was that it was SO MUCH MORE than an education. I met members of my cohort at Immersion Weekend, and we became a support system. We keep in touch almost daily. I also have a country-wide network now. We share what openings we have, which is great in this new remote and hybrid world. There are also many ways to connect when you are in the program to stay abreast of changing laws which impact HR professionals.
I have a feeling I will have this little support system and network well beyond finishing the program. I would highly recommend this program to any professional who feels they need to strengthen their knowledge of labor and employment law.
