New SHRM Credential for Talent Acquisition Pros

    May 1, 2018

    SHRM has developed a new Talent Acquisition Specialty Credential, targeted to launch this June. This credential is designed to help talent acquisition professionals distinguish their expertise and build their credibility within their organizations.

    To earn the credential, individuals must enroll in SHRM's Talent Acquisition: Creating Your Organization's Strategy seminar, available in-person or online; participate in six comprehensive SHRM eLearning courses on talent acquisition-specific topics including recruiting, analytics and hiring trends; and pass an online 50-question knowledge exam.

    Participants do not have to be SHRM-certified to earn the specialty credential, but will receive 25 professional development credits toward a SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP recertification upon completion of the program. Learn more.
