Here at Protiviti, we pride ourselves on giving our people the opportunity to shape their own careers. From travel, to project experiences, to flexible work arrangements, we work hard to ensure each person who walks through our doors has a meaningful and impactful career. This week, we are featuring 5 of our own. They started their careers as a #ProtivitiIntern but have since moved over to Campus Recruiting.
Next up in this series is our part-time DJ, full-time recruiter and the best guy on the team (happens to be the only guy on the team…) – Eujin!
- What is your background? “I graduated from the University of Illinois – Urbana/Champaign in December 2009 with degrees in Accounting and Information Systems & Information Technology. I also got a minor in Technology & Management.”
- What year were you a #ProtivitiIntern? “Summer 2009″
- What is one of your favorite intern memories? “One of my favorite intern memories was going to lunch with a small group of folks within the IT Security practice throughout the summer. They were a tightly knit group, spoke candidly with each other, and never gave me special treatment. It made me feel like a part of the team very early in my internship.”
- What was your path in moving from a #ProtivitiIntern to a Campus Recruiter? I spent 4 years working in the practice as part of the IAFA-Tech and ITC solutions. After the 3rd year of working as an IT Consultant, I realized that my true passion was in HR and recruiting. I was continuing to work as an IT Consultant as I began searching for a job in the field when Campus Recruiting Manager Jill called me about my dream job, Campus Recruiting. I transitioned onto the team in September 2014.”
- What is your favorite part of being a Campus Recruiter? “The ability to make a large impact on a crucial resource requirement of our business. Since Protiviti’s fundamental product as a consulting firm is its people, our ability as campus recruiters to source and evaluate candidates, in addition to our responsibility of managing recruiting strategies and processes, is directly associated with our firm’s long-term success. This job stays exciting because in the same day I could be advising a student on major life decisions, coordinating logistics for a job shadow, and meeting professors on campus.”
- What is one important lesson you have learned during your time at Protiviti? “Biggest lesson was the importance of communication. It’s a more powerful tool than intellect at the end of the day. You’ll be communicating on a regular basis with your project teams, multiple managers, and clients, and it’s crucial to your success to convey information accurately with the appropriate style and tone.”
