8th Annual Master's Consortium
On May 14, 2014 between 7:30 am and 3:30 pm, SIOP will host the 8th Annual SIOP Master’s Student Consortium which will continue to provide valuable information and great networking opportunities for participants. The Master’s Consortium makes its eighth appearance in Honolulu and promises to provide those in attendance with stimulating and informative sessions hosted by distinguished practitioners and managers. It is designed for students enrolled in master’s programs in I-O psychology and OB/HRM nearing completion of their master’s degree. The program will include a lineup of speakers who graduated from master’s programs and have excelled as managers and consultants.
Participants and speakers will meet with small groups of students and discuss issues related to finding, keeping, and getting promoted in I-O-related jobs. Students will attend two workshops and a question-and-answer roundtable session. Participants will be afforded unique opportunities to build relationships and make connections with others in the field.
Each master’s program may nominate two students per program to attend the consortium. Nomination forms were sent in November to each university’s program chair. Opportunities to participate in the Master’s Consortium are limited and spaces will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis so we encourage faculty to act quickly when receiving the nomination forms and ask students to complete their applications in a timely manner. The fee for the consortium is $60 per participant. This fee includes program materials and refreshments. If you have questions about the Master’s Consortium, or would like to nominate a speaker, please contact Melanie Coleman (Melanie.Coleman@wal-mart.com).
