College Mentorship Program
NHRA is currently looking for Mentors to help support the College Mentorship Program.
What is the purpose? Provide students with HR experience out of the classroom, as well as networking experience, through a guided mentorship. Each student is matched with a mentor based on HR areas of interest. Being a mentor also helps one see their own gifts, learn new things, and possibly get some extra work done!
What is the expectation: Mentors are asked to spend at minimum 1-2 hours a month between February – May with the mentee assigned to them. Actives may include but are not limited to; job shadowing, reviewing resumes, mock interviewing, attending a job fair, attending an NHRA/educational meeting, or other special projects/tasks.
Are you interested in making a difference?
This program is in its 4th successful year and we are excited to continue to offer such a value program to the young professionals in our community!

Return completed RFP to the attention of Theresa Severance at email@example.com
The Northland Human Resources Association's 11th Annual Golf Scramble/Fundraiser was held on July 13, 2015 at the beautiful Proctor Golf Club (in downtown Proctor, Minnesota). NHRA is an affiliate of the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM). Twenty four players participated in this year's event. Six team's took on the challenge of the par thirty three (33) Proctor links. The weather was a little nerve wracking but it turned out to be a beautiful day with temp's in the lower 80's and fairly low humidity...... a “Chamber of Commerce day”. The scores were very impressive as well!
