I am a current Senior at PNW, graduating in December 2016 with my BS in Human Resources. I am enjoying my internship at Oak Grove Christian Retirement Village up until graduation. I would love to find a job in Chicago after earning my second college degree. In the meantime, I am learning different functions of the Human Resources Department; including doing background checks, making up file folders for new employees, updating I-9 files, filing, and just began mail merging. There is still so much to learn this semester, and I welcome the experiences. Selena is very hands-on in answering questions and providing any help needed in gaining the experience for this challenging field.  I would recommend this internship opportunity to any upperclassmen seeking a career in Human Resources.

“Interning with Selena over the summer was a great experience for me. As a current senior at Purdue University majoring in Human Resources and Organizational Leadership, I sought out to gain some hands-on understanding of my field of study to better prepare myself for the workforce. At Oak Grove I was able to assist Selena with various projects that helped me to put some of my studies to work, most importantly though, I was able to observe Selena at work in all functions of HR. I learned so much by observing Selena and it helped that she was so kind, personable, and ready to help in any way she could. I would recommend this internship opportunity to any senior majoring in HR or Organizational Leadership.”

Interning at Oak Grove Retirement Village has been a very pleasurable experience. I will be graduating in spring 0f 2017 with a BS in SPEA concentrating in health service management. Working side by side with Selena I have learned what the HR department of a business does. She has been nothing but nice and has always gone above and beyond to make sure you understand the project at hand. She was always willing to answer any questions you may have had. Over the past few months I have been able to explore and learn about one of the employment options that my degree offers as it is a very broad degree and for that I am very thankful. If any student is seeking a career in Human Resources then this is a great place to gain some hands-on experience.
