WAVE lab member Jerod White recently participated in the fifth annual PTCMW Graduate Student Consulting Challenge hosted by Aon. His team, which consisted of three other I/O graduate students (pictured below), was awarded first place.
Teams were tasked with designing an innovative and efficient selection procedure for a security firm. They had one weekend to develop a proposal, write an executive summary of their plan, and give a 30-minute formal presentation to local I-Os and business professionals. Their winning proposal involved a variety of video- and game-based assessments of job-related competencies.
