    HR Research Intern

    Pros

    My experience working with Peoplesearch (PSS) for close to three months has been an eye-opening and wonderful learning experience. Having been taken under the wing of the HR team, I have learnt a lot from the senior consultants’ experiences regarding recruiting for the various HR roles. Not only that, but the positive attitude that the team has demonstrated, bouncing back quickly even after multiple rejections or setbacks has been an inspiration to me. Such a working environment has allowed me to grow as an individual in terms of understanding the constantly driven work attitude, motivating me to strive to fulfil the various tasks that were assigned to me. The working environment was pleasant thanks to the welcoming colleagues that have guided me along the way. They have been understanding and have consistently helped in answering my questions and providing feedback on my work. The daily meetings help build the team’s rapport, getting all of us on the same page on the various cases and motivating me to help where I could. During my time as a Temp staff, I have gained a lot of practice in researching, cold calling for cases, improving my communication skills when selling the different roles to potential candidates. While this pushed me out of my comfort zone, it was a welcome challenge that has allowed me to get a taste of the reality of the workings of the working world. I have been able to learn from both the positive and negative aspects of the recruiting process. Researching and mapping potential candidates for the different HR functions across different industries was an educational experience that allowed me to be more proficient in my excel skills as well as gain knowledge of the specificities behind the HR function. Working closely with the senior consultants, receiving feedback on candidates sourced and phonescreened improved my softskills to improve my communication skills that would be essential in the corporate world. There was a high consistency in ensuring that clients would have suitable candidates to choose from while ensuring candidates’ interests in the different roles. The goal-oriented work ethic, but also encouraging style of work has allowed me to gain experience for my future endeavours. If someone were to gain experience in researching and recruiting, I highly recommend PPS as the company to go to.

    Cons

    Due to the Covid situation, it was unfortunate that I was not able to convene with colleagues in person.
