Introducing HRPA Edge

HR experience for CHRP candidates.

Qualified Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) candidates to provide HR assistance to employers.
  
HRPA Edge is HRPA’s HR internship program that  matches CHRP Candidates with short-term, paid HR internships with participating host employers. HRPA is proud to be partnering with Career Edge Organization, a social enterprise that is passionate about connecting highly motivated, well qualified interns with leading organizations since 1996.

HRPA Edge Works
Half of Career Edge interns are hired by their host employer at the end of their internship and most of the rest successfully launch their career elsewhere within six months.

On-Demand Webinars


HRPA Edge is a win-win arrangement that benefits both interns and employers.

CHRP candidates get meaningful HR work consistent with their education and skills. 

Host Employers access qualified, recent HR graduates eager to put their human resources knowledge to work. We make the business of finding great talent cost efficient and virtually risk-free, while giving the edge to those striving to launch their careers.


HRPA Edge offers host employers a flexible, cost-effective option to HR based project staffing without impacting on FTE or headcount. Payroll administration is managed on your behalf by Career Edge Organization.

Guarantee: If, in the first six weeks of an internship, the intern leaves voluntarily or involuntarily, Career Edge will credit the employer with $1,000 towards the cost of replacing the intern.

Career Edge Organization provides on-line resources for both interns and employers to ensure a successful internship experience.
