Remote Internships in HR

Here are a few examples of roles that our HR interns have taken on before:

  • Employment Specialist

    An employment specialist effectively selects the right candidate to fill a vacant position by having an in-depth understanding of the business, its requirements, and its culture. Skilled employment specialists may find work within the human resources team of a specific company, or work for an external employment agency. Interns may be required to participate in interviews and/or assess applications.

  • Training and Development Manager

    Responsible for improving the productivity of employees, focusing on the internal aspects of a company, often achieved through the creation and implementation of programs that maintain or upgrade the skills of employees. Interns may be required to contribute to such initiatives and also conduct periodic evaluations of various teams’ skill sets.

  • Global Human Resources Specialist

    While some companies prefer to recruit from local candidates, a global human resources specialist is necessary for organizations seeking to recruit from the global talent pool. Interns in this role will gain an understanding of different cultures and methods of effective communication, as well as knowledge of relevant immigration, tax, and other legal legislation.

  • Payroll Specialist

    Interns with an interest in data capturing and accounting, can shadow a payroll specialist, and may be tasked with responsibilities such as executing accurate and timely payroll transactions, ensuring all payroll information, such as leave balances, are updated, as well as providing relevant taxation documents for employees.

The HR industry

Remote human resources are a unique opportunity for dedicated professionals to gain experience in one of today’s most valuable industries. HR professionals take on key roles across career fields, companies, and countries. They are highly valued members of any team they join, and manage everything from employee lifecycles to company-wide processes.

Prior experience in the field is essential because organizations look to hire applicants who have demonstrated specific abilities in a professional setting. The most successful HR professionals have excellent communication skills, and are highly organized. They are also very self-motivated and have strong problem solving and time management skills,  all of which are developed during remote human resources internships. Of course, human resources teams also handle large amounts of sensitive personal data regarding applicants and employees. This element of the field requires a certain level of professionalism and discretion.
