Lisa (Singh) Zajac, '11, is currently an HR manager at The Toro Company, having previously worked at CenturyLink and Stanley Black & Decker. She’s pleased to have attended the MA-HRIR program. “The program has a reputation of being one of the top programs in the nation,” she says. “I grew up in St. Paul and was excited to be able to further my education and pursue my passion right here in the Twin Cities!”  She says the program offered a diverse range of courses, theory and practice “that prepared me to be a strategic HR business partner and effective business leader. I also had the ability to build a strong professional network with alumni, classmates and faculty members that continues to be a resources for my professional development,” she adds. Joining the Alumni Board gives Zajac a chance to “give back to the program by helping current students, alumni, and members of the business community with their professional development,” she says. And what advice does she have to offer current students?  “Say yes to opportunities that may be outside of your comfort zone,” she says, “and constantly seek feedback. Your development is your responsibility.”
