SHRM Membership

Why Join SHRM?

  • Student membership is $40 which is less than 20% of the $219 professional membership cost.
  • There are phenomenal networking opportunities that you can only attend if you are a SHRM member.
  • Members have access to the job board.
  • Useful research information, only accessible to SHRM members, is provided on the local and national websites.
  • If you have had an internship or job in HR that has given you 500 hours of experience, you will be eligible to take the SHRM-CP exam right after you graduate. This is a professional certification that you normally must wait two years in an HR job to be qualified to take. It will set you apart from other new hires/candidates. Please note: the SJU Management Department subsidizes this exam for all MHC majors/minors.
  • Student pricing for all Philly SHRM events and seminars. (Refer to the Philadelphia SHRM tab for more information on how to register for student discounts on events and seminars.)
  • If you are an SJU undergraduate Managing Human Capital (MHC) declared major or minor*, the management department is able to offer a $30 subsidy towards your $40 membership fee.  Your total annual cost while still an MHC Undergraduate student is only $10!
    • *All other students (including undergraduates in other disciplines, and all graduate students) will receive the discounted $40 membership rate but not the subsidy.
