Free HR Certification Flashcards

human resources certification flashcardsUpdate: the free HR flash card giveaway is past (for now). Find out who won here. If you want to get your hands on one of the best HR certification study aids available, why not snag the eBook?

Or you can get the HRCP discount! If you purchase the HRCP study materials and use the special HRCP discount code, you will get a $20 discount!

It’s getting to be that time for a large number HR professionals out there. They’ll be hitting the HRCI website and signing up for the PHR, SPHR, or GPHR exam. And I have something to help along the way. I’ve partnered with HRCP for a few months now, and I haven’t regretted it once. They have a great HR certification prep study guide, and you can save yourself the hassle of making flashcards by getting some from them. However, they’ve given me a pack of their flashcards to give away for free.

Free HR Certification Flashcards

Would you like a free set of HR certification flashcards? Here’s what you have to do.

In 50 words or less, simply tell me why you’re taking the exam.

Your story can be touching, funny, crazy, or eye-gougingly boring. It’s up to you. The deadline is 11:59pm on Wednesday, March 10th. The winner will be chosen randomly (thanks to Random.org) and notified via email. Depending on the popularity of the contest, I may host another in the near future. But we’ll see. So get cracking on your answers!

Smile Week Contest

The contest is closed! Thanks to the participants. Alicia, Krista, Trish, and April all got in before the deadline and won a prize. Congratulations, ladies!

In an earlier post, I mentioned that Ashley Andrus sent me a book in honor of this “Smile Week” idea.

Seeing my niece and nephew kissing my wifes class pet rock is enough to make me smile

Seeing my niece and nephew kissing my wife's classroom pet rock is enough to make me smile!

After some Google research, I couldn’t find much about this celebratory period! However, I promised I would pay it forward, and I most definitely shall! UpstartHR is having its first contest, and it’s dedicated to the idea (that I wholeheartedly embrace) that we can all bring a smile to someone’s face with relatively little effort.

I want to know what someone has done to make you smile in the past week. It could be big or small, but I’m going to pick my favorite response and send that person a little prize. And, just to be fair to those that work in an office full of automatons, if nobody made you smile this week, but you were able to help someone else with a grin, then that would work just fine!

What happened this week that created a smile?

Did someone send you an unexpected note? Thank you for your contribution? Offer help with a difficult project? Tell a great joke? I want to know! Drop it in the comment section below and I’ll choose a winner by this Friday. Good luck!
