<strong>Neenah, Wis. </strong><br />During the 2007 fall semester, J.J. Keller&rsquo;s Prospera University Program brought together Rowan University and New Jersey-based Smolin Lupin & Co. to successfully complete a project-based learning experience. The recently completed project resulted in the creation of 22 new customized job descriptions.<br /><br />Smolin Lupin & Co. enrolled the help of human resource management students in Rowan University&rsquo;s Management of Compensation class to generate job descriptions for their organization. Using Prospera, Joel Rudin, professor of management at the Rohrer College of Business at Rowan University, designed a questionnaire that Smolin Lupin employees completed. The students then used Prospera&rsquo;s library of job descriptions to find the one that most closely matched the job and integrated the data collected through the questionnaire in order to create customized descriptions of the 22 jobs.<br /><br />Rudin said, &ldquo;Our students learned a great deal through this project with Smolin Lupin. The use of J.J. Keller&rsquo;s Prospera allowed us to create consistent and thorough job descriptions for our client. The job description library allowed students to build a more complete picture of the job duties than they could have based solely on the questionnaire data. Without the use of Prospera, our work could not have met the quality standards of our client.&rdquo;<br /><br />&ldquo;The project completed by the students provided our organization with an extremely useful result, while allowing them to learn about and understand the importance of job descriptions,&rdquo; said Rachel Anevski, director of human resources at Smolin Lupin & Co. &ldquo;We are happy to have partnered with the Rowan University students in this learning experience.&rdquo;<br /><br />The Prospera University Program is a free program offered to professors and students in the field of human resources. Registrations for the program are currently being accepted. To register, contact Stephanie Dean at (920) 720-7802 or<br />
