Future HR managers to match wits at Sac State competition

Aspiring human resource managers from universities in six western states will test their knowledge at the Pacific-West Regional Human Resource Games on April 15-16 at Sacramento State's University Union. The competition is sponsored by the Sacramento State student chapter of the Human Resource Management Association.

Modeled after the television game show "Jeopardy!," the competition will feature nine three-member student teams from Alaska, California, Hawaii, Montana, Nevada and Washington fielding questions based on topics covered in the Professionals in Human Resources certification exam. The regional winners from the Sacramento State competition will head to this summer's Society of Human Resource Management National Championship in San Diego.

Spectators are welcome to attend the competition free of charge. The games run from 1 to 6 p.m. on Friday, April 15 and from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 16.

The Human Resource Management Association student chapter at Sacramento State was organized in 1973. The organization hosts social activities, encourages development of leadership skills, and provides opportunities for students to network with local human resource management professionals.

More information about the competition is available from or Media assistance is available from Sacramento State Public Affairs at (916) 278-6156.
