Why we engage in summer internships
Every year, HRCap eagerly looks forward to our summer internships. We absolutely love our interns. They have always allowed us to strengthen our brand, level up as an organization, and stay fun-spirited throughout the summer!
We truly value the fresh ideas they can bring to the workplace, especially given the ever-changing market dynamics and ongoing candidate/customer needs.
Collaboration is critical at HRCap, and interns have helped us stay streamlined and break down silos across the organization. By supervising and mentoring interns, rising managers have gained greater management and leadership skills. By leading projects with interns, they have taken on greater responsibilities and ownership, thereby allowing greater collaboration, engagement, and productivity.
Most importantly, we are able to identify and embed HRCap DNAs through the internship experience. At the successful completion of their internships, we often extend ongoing engagement that they can take back to their respective campuses as brand ambassadors and even full-time opportunities to join us post-graduation.
So, who are these amazing interns?
2022 has been a great year for HRCap so far, and fortunately, we had the pleasure of reviewing the largest candidate pool of qualified summer interns. Our interns have been selected based on their prior experiences, academic major, technical skills, and personality fit. They have been strategically assigned to work closely with each of our respective teams at our HQ office.
5 amazing interns have joined us this year. During our orientation, our interns introduced themselves and shared why they chose HRCap, what skills they can bring to the team, and what they would like to accomplish during their internship.
1. Ahyoung Kim (Marketing Analytics Major & Communication Skills Minor)
I wanted to work at HRCap because of the significant impact it has on the global labor market. I saw that it has a proprietary database that differentiates itself from other competitors and found that something I wanted to learn more about.
I believe that I am a great team player, which is important to get long-term results. Although I learned a lot about theoretical marketing and how to analyze, I want to learn how to get real-world application of my knowledge during this internship. I also want to develop communication skills because people who work in HR need to respond well to customers, clients, and candidates.
2. Austin Lee (Psychology Major)
When I researched HRCap, I saw so many positive reviews and was excited that the company aligned with my interests. I didn’t think I could pass up on this role, especially since research and recruiting have always been a passion of mine.
I believe that my learning agility will be a great asset to the team. I am quite flexible and quick to adapt to new situations. There are certain situations that can happen spontaneously, and you need to have the awareness to adapt to them. Out of this internship, I want to hone my detail-oriented skills and gain valuable experience that I can take with me and apply in the future.
3. Brian Kim (IT Major & Business Administration Minor)
This is my first official internship. While I was being interviewed, everyone was very nice and welcoming, so I knew right away that this was the ideal place to start my internship.
I am a pretty good communicator; I am able to listen and clearly communicate what others have told me to my audience. During this internship, I hope to learn as much as I can about how things work from the bottom up as a global recruiting company.
4. Doris Chen (Human Resource Management Major & Business Administration Minor)
I really enjoyed my interview process. The company’s employees and culture left a strong impression on me. Even though I had a long interview, I really enjoyed my time with everyone, so I felt that was a good sign.
I’m a detail-oriented person, which I believe can benefit the team. During this internship, I want to get better at recruiting and see how my skill and HR knowledge can apply to this internship and how it works in the real world.
5. Grace Ok (Communication Design Major & Business of Arts Minor)
I believe this internship is a great opportunity because I am able to be creative in a new professional field. This is a great opportunity to immerse myself in an Asian American community and add further value to the team.
My ability to collaborate with others and be open to feedback and constructive criticism will make me a great asset to the team. I am always open to new ideas and considerate of everyone’s opinions. Through this internship, I hope to learn more about this company and industry and add on to my professional experience as a graphic designer.
We are very excited to work with our summer interns and have faith that they will not only gain the skills and experiences here, but also teach us and help us grow as an learning organization. We are excited that they will all keep us accountable for continuous growth and modernization here at HRCap.
