Meet Carol Marut!
SHRM Certification Prep Graduate

"We must develop a positive vision, and these classes help us to develop that vision which in turn will help to create positive actions and events. It’s a great starting point to learn more and enhance ones HR career.”


Carol Marut graduated from the Continuing Education Department’s SHRM Certification Prep Course at Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) in 2016. Ms. Marut joined the program because she needed preparation in order to pass the SHRM-SCM exam. For Ms. Marut, learning in a professional classroom setting featuring routines and weekly deadlines helped her be more accountable for her work, forcing her to be prepared for her exam. She enjoyed the course’s instructor and her classmates, as everyone shared their own HR experiences and learned together through the relationships they formed.


Ms. Marut’s work in the SHRM certification program set her up to successfully complete one of her career goals in achieving professional certification in HR management. She currently works at SS&C Technologies in Windsor, CT as the Senior Human Resources Manager. Because of her training at CCSU and ability to earn her SHRM-SCP certification, Ms. Marut feels she is recognized as a leader in the HR field. She thanks CCSU’s SHRM Certification Prep Program for providing her with some of the skills and knowledge needed to contribute and be a valuable asset to her organization.
