HRM Internships Spotlight
Phuong Nguyen '16
As a human resources management major at Fisher, Phuong Nguyen has interned at three different companies. She is spending her last semester at the College's School of Business interning with Hillside Family of Agencies - an organization that provides health, education, and human services to disadvantaged children and their families.
At Hillside, a typical day for Phuong consists of screening resumes, conducting phone interviews, and aiding in staff training. Having these responsibilities has given her valuable experience with regard to unique software, virtual teamwork, and adapting to a variety of cultural norms.
Due in part to her internship experiences, with both profit and not-for-profit businesses, Phuong has decided to continue her education. As she aims to obtain her master's in public administration with a concentration in healthcare, Phuong will consider starting her career in staffing while she attends school.
"Learning a new culture is harder than it sounds," she says. "I encourage every student to take the advantage of an internship to gain valuable knowledge and practice."
