Human Resources Leadership Summit

Are you someone who brings out the best in the people around you? Do you love using data to find and tackle complex problems? If so, we want to bring you in for an amazing experience.

We want top-performing sophomores, with an interest in meaningful work, to join our HR Leadership Summit. The Summit is a 3.5-day, all-expenses paid experience, where we offer a look into one of the world’s leading companies for leadership development.

A career in Human Resources with us is about much more than just pushing paper and enforcing policies. We are partners with senior leadership, guiding the strategy of different organizations, making sure our organization is fully inclusive and supportive of all of our people, and providing personal mentorship to others.

If you like the thought of having a say, of influencing others, making sure we are diverse and inclusive to everyone, ultimately helping our people perform at their peak, you definitely should consider this Leadership Summit.

This what the program looks like:

We would fly to our World Headquarters in downtown Cincinnati for a 3.5 day experience, put you up in a boutique hotel within walking distance of our offices, and treat you to amazing meals at some of the best, new restaurants in Cincinnati.

Over the course of the summit, you will meet with high-level HR leaders who will share their insights into a variety of areas, including:

  • Leadership Development
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Talent and Capability
  • Organization Design
  • Culture & Change Management
  • Employee Engagement

While you’re here, we’ll show you how Human Resources really works in a large, multinational company. We will ask that you share your ideas through an interactive business case with your summit peers. We’ll give you all the information you need so you can do the research and present your case recommendations. We’re looking for someone to wow us with your unique perspective and ideas.

Finally, we’ll hold a panel interview with you that could potentially lead to an internship offer for the following summer (2020). Our full-time HR management internships are 12-weeks long and pay very well. If would like meaningful work, in a dynamic and fast-paced environment, where you are expected to deliver on key business deliverables, this would be a phenomenal internship for you.

QUALIFICATIONS

We believe this is ideal for you if:

  • You’re an academically high-achieving sophomore (graduating in 2021) working towards a BA, BS, BBS degree in HR, or related field of study (communication, psychology, etc.)
  • You have leadership experience in your degree program or extra-curricular organizations
  • You thrive in situations where you need little direction to have an impact on decision-making

If you’re a really good fit, you will be:

  • Passionate about improving people and team performance
  • Able to use data analysis to tell stories and drive decisions
  • Able to take complex social problems to help our businesses win in their respective markets

Just so you know:

  • You will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, protected veteran status, disability status, age, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, marital status, citizenship, HIV/AIDS status or any other legally protected factor

Volunteer with Charleston YOUth Count

By Cassandra P. Foster
Posted on 9 May 2018 | 11:14 am — 

The Joseph P. Riley Jr. Center for Livable Communities, a College of Charleston organization, is beginning the process of recruiting volunteers for Summer canvassing.

Volunteers will be working with The Charleston YOUth Count, an effort to count and bring resources to youth experiencing homelessness in our city.

Last year, the Riley Center conducted a study that found that an estimated one third of College of Charleston students struggle with not having enough food to eat or a secure place to sleep at night. The scope of the problem for the rest of Charleston is unclear, but through the YOUth Count we are gathering data to find out rates of food and housing insecurity and work to provide individuals in our community much needed resources and support. We learned a lot during our first data collection period in the Spring and are ready to get back into the field, but we need your help!

As a volunteer, your role would involve surveying participants, disseminating information and bringing resources to young people experiencing homelessness. You will receive free CITI training, gain practical research experience, on-the-ground experience with diverse populations, and you will truly make a difference in your community. Please navigate to our Facebook page to learn more about us https://www.facebook.com/CHSYouthCount/. Once you’re ready to join our team, use this link to apply: https://goo.gl/forms/Xu4Mdbm3DqyNULc42

We strongly encourage adults and community members to apply as we would like to have a diverse group of volunteers from a variety of backgrounds – everyone has something to bring to the table.

Housing and food insecurity is a prevalent issue in our own backyard, and with your help, we can take steps to eradicate it and ensure everyone in our community has the services they need!

Questions? Email youthcountvolunteer@gmail.com or call (843) 953-6100.

Workshop Opportunity + Scholarship

Project Charleston 2018 — Working with Nonprofits

Document the work of nonprofits in the South’s “Holy City”! Join Momenta & Leica for our very first workshop in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina during the most picturesque time of year! On a Project workshop, we assign each student a different local nonprofit, and you then work with your instructors to create a photo story about their mission. We combine nightly lectures, business skills training and daily, 1-on-1 editing sessions with an instructor in one of the fastest growing and most beautiful cities in the country!

We require all attending photographers to bring their own cameras, laptop and support gear like external hard drives.

Our staff and instructors can offer gear recommendations and help you understand the nuances of your equipment. You will also be able check out a Leica M series camera and lenses during the workshop thanks to our friends at Leica!

We ask all photographers bring at least a digital SLR or rangefinder camera with 1-2 lenses. We encourage you to bring a lightweight tripod. Should you choose to participate in a multimedia project, you must come with a working knowledge of the required software programs and your equipment.

This course is designed for people who are good natured, flexible, have a working knowledge of photography and are interested in a unique documentary photography workshop experience. We will work with each photographer to improve their photography on any level, and we will find the right theme for your vision. We will provide support every step of the way, but you need to have a positive attitude and work well with a group!

This experience is more of a photo practicum than it is a tourism trip. The educational journey will be amazing and eye opening but it is not easy. You will work long hours. Your instructors will give you daily challenges and push you to new heights with your photography. We will encourage you to stretch and think creatively.

You may encounter people or organizations that are challenging to photograph. You may have to photograph in dark rooms or outside at high noon. You may have stressful days of difficult logistics. While we will be there to help you, support you and give you insight on the best way to handle the situation as a professional, you will need to take as much responsibility for your progress as we do.

The West Award is available to both undergraduates and graduate students. The scholarship covers the cost of tuition plus a $500 stipend.

Please send a cover letter and a link to your online portfolio to info@momentaworkshops.com. The cover letter should explain why you would like to attend a Momenta Workshop and how this workshop will benefit your career goals. Please include the above information in an email with the Subject heading: “The West Award: (workshop name) Application.”
