Tell us about your internship at Signify.
J: I’m responsible for recruiting the best interns all over Europe for Signify.
Every time that I am assigned to a new requisition, I have a meeting with the Hiring Manager to further discuss and align on the internship’s requirements. I take full ownership and create the job description, before posting it online. After screening the candidates, I forward the most promising ones to the Hiring Manager. I enjoy interviewing candidates and create the questions on the on-demand-video platform. I feel that I have made a meaningful contribution to Talent Acquisition by attracting the most qualified students for internship positions at Signify.
What aspect of your job brings the most satisfaction, in your daily routine?
J: I am enthusiastic when the Hiring Manager agrees with my advice regarding candidates. These moments I feel that my work matters. What also really “wows” me is the team spirit. In my team if you have a problem, it is easily resolved as we quickly find someone that will help you out. We really care about each other!
