A talent feed for future HR Professionals
AHRI’s HR student work experience program is designed to assist student members studying HR or a related field to gain real-life HR work experience. The program connects students with member organisation through a week-long work experience placement, fully immersing them in the workplace and fills the gap between theoretical knowledge gained at university and practical knowledge. Equally, the program offers organisations the opportunity to tap into a potential talent pool, helping them to identify, develop and invest in future talent.
Twenty-four students were placed with participating member organisations in the pilot program this year; three placements resulted in employment.
The program will open for new intakes in early 2016.
