Summer 2016 HR/Social Media Intern
Human Resources/Social Media Intern (Former Employee) – Torrance, CA – July 20, 2016
I'm only one month into the Aflac Torrance Summer 2016 internship program, but I only have good things to say about my experience so far!
As an intern, our responsibilities are to recruit/interview potential candidates and schedule the qualifying candidates to come in for a first interview. We are also responsible for managing the office's social media pages (Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook).
Because my career goal is to become a recruiter, this internship is perfect for me! I've gotten some insights on cues and hints on what does or does not make a person a good candidate.
There is a total of 10 or 11 interns, I believe, but I love working with them all! The office set up doesn't make it so we're each in a cubicle cut off from everyone, the environment is open so we're all face to face which I appreciate. I'm also very appreciative of our supervisor because of her straightforwardness, she's helped us each improve our weaknesses as the weeks have gone by and is also very helpful and really nice!
The agents who work in the office are all also very friendly with each of us, and willing to help us if we need it. You can tell how much they all love their jobs too, which definitely makes for a good work environment.
I gave the "compensation" 3 stars, because the internship is unpaid, however I'm mainly here for the experience, not the money.
Despite the compensation, I would definitely recommend this internship to anyone who is interested in recruiting and/or managing a social media account for a business!
