“After I completed the Program, I took and passed the SHRM-CP exam. I found that having completed the UCSB Program and SHRM-CP certification put me ahead of other applicants when applying for new jobs. This has made me more valuable to my organization and has helped me move beyond my Generalist role into a more specialized position.”
