YOakleyPR Intern of the Month for February 2015

Congratulations to Junaid “Jay” Abid, our February Intern of the Month!

Junaid Abid intern of the monthJay started his Human Resources internship with YOakleyPR in October 2014 and has consistently displayed a strong sense of commitment to his team, the tasks that he has been given, and the new challenges he has had to face along the way.

As a Human Resources Intern at YOakleyPR, this California State University at Chico – HR Management student has had the difficult task of managing his time between his full-time studies and working his regular job. Some of Jay’s challenges have included: full cycle recruiting, weekly team conferences and progress reports, as well as onboarding processes for new recruits.

Jay has impressed his fellow team members during his internship in more ways than one. Here are some of the complimentary things that they had to say about him:

“I am impressed with the way Jay has implemented his recruitment plan from beginning to end. From the creation of YOakleyPR’s recruitment strategy, to its implementation through job postings and interviews, and to the final hiring and training of our new intern team, Jay has been there every step of the way. I am also impressed with the insights he gives during the onboarding calls with the new intern team.”

“Jay is quite a leader! He gets things done!”

“Jay served as a key player in the Spring 2015 recruitment initiative and helped the team successfully meet its goals for the term. I think that is one of the best examples of “productivity.”

“Although the HR Team was small, I feel that Jay was a strong addition to the team. He is clearly capable of taking on an assignment and supporting his Project Manager in order to meet a deadline and team goals.”

Congratulations Jay! Your efforts have paid off. You will be receiving a $25 Visa gift card in the mail, plus a little something extra to put on your new Human Resources Management resume. Keep up the good work!
