An internship represents an opportunity for participants to apply what they have learned in the classroom to a real professional experience in a stimulating and innovative setting.
- Our interns acquire a meaningful first professional experience.
- They work on well-defined projects in which they are given real responsibilities and gain hands-on experience.
- They are naturally part of a talent pool that we tap into for recruitment purposes.
I accepted the position as a HR New Graduate directly out of university. I saw it as an unique opportunity to explore different facets of the Human Resource function. I was part of a team that supported me in my development, encouraged me to attend relevant conferences, network and undergo field specific training sessions. 15 months after my integration, I was promoted to a Total Rewards & HRIS* Specialist. Now as I venture towards a more strategic role, it is immensely helpful to have had that fundational knowledge to understand the process maps and system flows.
