Being offered a higher paid HR admin position in recognition of the hard work I’d put in during my internship.

What benefits did your internship bring to your employer?

I helped colleagues and team during a very busy period and I also started the process of centralising some HR processes.

Did you encounter any problems during the course of your internship and if so, how did you overcome them?

When I didn’t know how to do something I used my common sense, made notes when learning processes to reflect back on, and asked other members of my team.
