So, you’ve finally reached the stage that you need to have a productive and rewarding internship experience and have begun the meticulous task of surfing the Internet for a job. More so, you are eager to kick-start your career preview relevant to what you enjoy doing but don’t know where to begin.

When faced with such a challenge, most people forget to ask themselves what industry can support their
unique skill set. Perhaps you’re tenacious and thrive in a competitive environment, or find enjoyment when
tasked with autonomous projects. Maybe you’re articulate and find it easy communicating your ideas to others, or
simply confident when speaking over the telephone. No matter what context, all of these skills are valuable to an
employer.

In fact, these same skills are most attractive to the recruitment industry.

Why Recruitment?

Forget the notion that recruitment is only open to graduates with sales experience or a business degree
- it just isn’t that kind of role. Even without pre-existing sector knowledge, trainee recruitment consultants have enormous potential to excel. In fact, consultants have a multifaceted role that goes beyond recruitment.

Recruiters are also effective networkers, business consultants, marketers, interviewers, strategists and
problem-solvers - often all on the same day - as they aim to deliver staffing solutions to companies and job
seekers.

It will be a great exposure to the chosen intern to work with our Internal Talent Acquisition team in identifying the best talents by being part of the selection process.

What does your day-to-day entail?

  • Getting clear assignments involving talent mapping and candidate screening
  • Sitting-in some interview as part of industry/ job exposure
  • Spending time with experienced Recruitment Managers and sourcing/talent matching for selected challenging requirements 
  • Exposure to the different hiring tools and being able to work on talent acquisition projects

    How does a successful candidate look like?

  • You are driven to learn and have a degree of confidence to face stakeholders within the region
  • You are keen to participate in graduate hiring activities or efforts 
  • You want to be involved in the team's efforts to improve our market visibility for employer branding initiatives involving Instagram. Linkedin and Glassdoor.
