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, our Texan that ain’t messin’, Emily!
- What is your background? “I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2013 with a degree in Finance.”
- What year were you a #ProtivitiIntern? “Summer 2012”
- What is one of your favorite intern memories? “My favorite memory as an intern was definitely The Intern Challenge. That week showed me how much Protiviti truly invests in its employees. To be treated the way I was, even as an intern, really made an impression on me. The recruiters had planned events for us most nights, and even arranged for us to meet the CEO. The whole week was so fun, thought-provoking, and organized, and I am beyond excited to attend this year for the first time as a recruiter!”
- What was your path in moving from a #ProtivitiIntern to a Campus Recruiter? “I remember how impressed I was with Protiviti when I went through the recruiting process on campus. Then when I started participating in more campus recruiting events, my interest in joining the team really sparked. I was really enjoying my project work, but I couldn’t get the thought of a potential transition into recruiting out of the back of my head. When a position for the role opened up, I couldn’t help but apply and see what happened. Now here I am!”
- What is your favorite part of being a Campus Recruiter? “The opportunity to build relationships with so many different individuals. From students, to Managing Directors, to college advisors and professors, I love the ability to work with people from a variety of levels and see things from different perspectives.”
- What is one important lesson you have learned during your time at Protiviti? “To take the time to get to know the people on your team. At first as an intern, you may feel shy which is okay, but at Protiviti we want you to put yourself out there and get to know as many people as possible. It will certainly pay off in the long run.”
