KerberRose Employee Receives SHRM National Scholarship

Cathryn Siolka, Human Resources Intern, was recently awarded the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) National Scholarship.

Cathryn will use the scholarship to complete her degree at St. Norbert College, where she is majoring in Business Administration with a Human Resource Management concentration. Siolka will graduate from St. Norbert in only three years. Cathryn has taken on an overload of credits while juggling an internship at KerberRose and another part-time job on campus. Siolka began the Human Resources Internship at KerberRose in June 2017 and has had the opportunity to shadow, learn and grow with our existing Human Resources department.

The Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) is the largest human resource professional society in over 165 countries. SHRM also offers a membership to college students studying Human Resources. This allows the students to discover HR news, conferences, research reports and networking events. Cathryn states, “This is my second year as a SHRM student member.  We utilize their website a lot during my Intermediate and Advanced HR courses in school, but I also use the website to research information I may need for work, keep up on the ever-changing realm of HR, and find information about scholarships, conferences, etc.  It’s a great place to narrow down information from many extensive sources.”

We are proud to announce that Cathryn will be hired as a full time HR Generalist with KerberRose in May 2019. “KerberRose has helped me to gain the necessary experience to help me succeed in a professional HR role coupled with my St. Norbert education.  I have been tasked with a wide variety of projects, and Melissa (along with other KR employees) has continually helped me to advance my knowledge of benefits, recruiting, and much more,” commented Cathryn.
