Fai graduated in August 2019 and has recently accepted an HR Manager position with PepsiCo. After completing her MHRIR degree, Fai stated that she felt the greatest skills she acquired while in the program were the areas of startegic planning, negotiations, and labor relations.
"I would recommend the online MHRIR program to anyone who is already in the workforce wanting to advance their career without being on campus full-time. I genuinely felt that I received the same quality education as the traditional program. Completing the degree online meant that my peers and I had the benefit of maximizing our time in other areas of life simultaneously - whether that was growing a career, starting a family, or entering a new profession. The online program gave me the accessibility to go back to school without having to physically be on campus. In the end, I saved a lot of time, money, and stress! Attending school online is the way of the future. I am grateful that I got to do it with the prestigious School of Labor and Employment Relations at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign."
