HR Club Next Generation Summer School, 2nd Edition

HR Club Next Generation started as soon as we realized the need to contribute to the development not only of the current HR professionals in Romania, but also of a new generation of HR professionals who correctly understand and respond to challenges in this field.

HR Club Next Generation objectives:

  • Providing participants with relevant and complete information about the HR field.
  • Developing their ability to use all information acquired shortly after the completion of courses.
  • Giving the participants the possibility to decide at the end of the summer school what specialization they want to pursue in the field of human resources.


From 14 to 28 of July, 18 students and masters participated to the HR Club Next Generation summer school, where they had the opportunity to meet over 40 tutors and trainers. During the two weeks which consisted of best practices modules, trainings and company visits, the students worked in teams to solve a case study. The most realistic and creative solutions were appreciated and awarded by the jury consisting of tutors and HR Club members.    

The 18 students and masters were selected through a rigorous procedure consisting of two phases: submission of applications (CV and an essay) and participation to selection interviews with the HR Club executive team. The selection criteria included previous contact with the HR field through internships, courses, trainings or acknowledged activity within NGOs or other organizations.
