My position was not appropriately described but was to work under the guidelines and supervision of my internship supervisor in the human resource and finance departments. 4.0 Training CompletedThe entire duration of the internship was 4 weeks.
I spent the first 3 weeks of the period in the Human Resource department and the last week in the finance department. My job title was ‘summer internship trainee’. The following section will give a detailed weekly report which will indicate the training completed. Week 1The main human resource practice which I learnt during my first week of internship was staffing. Over my first week of internship, I interviewed various people through Skype and via physical interviews. Interviews are an important practice in the staffing process which is one of the key roles of the human resource management department.
Physical interviews have been the norm in many staffing processes over time but the embracing of technology in human resource management has seen the adoption of technologies such as skype which allow for virtual interviews (Harris & Foster, 2010). Training on this practice is important in my career since it equips me with the vital experience and knowledge in staffing. Key to the staffing process is the filling of the necessary documents required in the hiring of new employees. I was also trained in the filing of these forms.
I was also trained on the application for visas, hotels and for the new employees from overseas. This is a key practice in international human resource management IHRM. This training made me have more knowledge and experience in international human resource management which is a very important practice influencing the success of an organization in the modern globalized world. I was also involved in various levels of interactions with agencies which provide skilled and highly experienced employees for long or short-terms.
This exercise was vital in equipping me with outsourcing processes which are very common in the modern day organizational management.
