Congratulations to Alexandra “Casey” Lowe, our December Intern of the Month!
Casey Lowe began her YOakleyPR Project Management – Human Resources internship in August of this year. Casey is our first ever Human Resources intern, and has worked hard to build our HR department from the ground up.
Prior to Casey’s start, YOakleyPR’s internship program operated without many Human Resources functions, including an onboarding process for new hires. Since her start three months ago, Casey has created handbooks for each of four internship teams, written evaluation forms, developed exiting interviews, implemented intern incentive programs (like this intern of the month award!,) and offered resume review services. She is currently working with her team to design and implement a recruitment strategy, so that YOakleyPR can hone in on new talent.
Casey’s fellow interns nominated her this month for her professionalism and willingness to help out. Here are some of the things they had to say:
“I am not an HR intern, but I see Casey frequently posting potentially helpful materials to Basecamp, [our project management website.] I sometimes look at her posts and think ‘This would have been so helpful if I had this when I started!’”
“Casey encourages others to participate and be productive, in addition to being productive herself!”
“Casey is always professional, whether it be through email or Google Hangouts. She rarely makes any grammatical errors and tries to answer my questions as soon as she can. She is also juggling this internship with a job, which is very relatable and shows how hardworking she is.”
Congratulations, Casey! Your hard work has paid off. You will be receiving a $25 Visa gift card in the mail, as well as a little something extra to put on your resume. Keep up the good work!
