The Division of Talent and Culture and the John Chambers College of Business and Economics have partnered to offer a fellowship opportunity for the Fall 2020 semester to provide hands-on experience in human resources. The Talent and Culture Fellowship will be available to eligible students in the John Chambers College of Business and Economics. The Fellowship will be offered to up to three students after a competitive interview process, with the selected students each receiving a $500 one-time award, as well as 3 elective credit hours upon successful completion of the course.
West Virginia University Talent and Culture works to create opportunities that allow current employees to thrive and future employees to feel welcomed and valued. It serves as a strategic partner with the University community by providing quality, customer-driven and progressive human resources initiatives to attract, retain and motivate a highly-talented, committed and diverse workforce.
The WVU human resources function is split into 6 units:
Classification and Compensation
Leadership and Organization Development
The Talent and Culture Fellows will participate in cross-functional projects that touch topics covered by several of these units. They will experience daily life in a human resources department, with the opportunity to take a deeper look at the work it takes to support a large organization.
The ideal candidates will have a deep desire to learn and an interest in a variety of HR topics. The Fellows must be able to work both independently and as part of a group to produce high-level work that can be implemented by WVU Talent and Culture.
