Monthly Member Spotlight: An Interview with Kajal Zala, Delaware SHRM Student Member

Kajal Zala is currently a senior at the University of Delaware, majoring in Human Relations Administration with a minor in Organizational Community Leadership. She is one of the founding members and current Co-President of the SHRM Student Chapter on campus. Her love for the Human Resources profession began when she volunteered at a local Healthcare Center with an HR Director. Her favorite thing about working in HR is how different each day is from the previous. Devoted to lifelong learning, she is eager to see where the Human Resources profession will take her. 


What’s the best piece of advice you received along the way as you were building your career in HR?
"Human Resources is all about the people that work in your organization."

 "You never have a boring day in HR."


If you could live (and work) anywhere in the world, where would you go? (Please share why). 
Sydney, Australia. It has always been a dream of mine to go to Australia and being able to work there would be a dream come true.


Outside of your work in HR, what wakes you up in the morning?
I am a nature lover as well as a photography enthusiast, I love taking care of my plants and taking early morning scenery pictures.


What made you join SHRM? What keeps you coming back?
I joined SHRM for my professional and personal development. The workshops, trainings, and networking are outstanding.
