My Time at Savant

What did you hope to achieve during your internship at Savant?

Interning with Savant has been such an enriching experience. With limited experience in the Human Resources field, I came into this internship with the hope of gaining a plethora of knowledge surrounding all factors that go into Human Resources such as policy enactment, job board recruitment, and employee engagement among other things. Most importantly, I wanted to gain insight into the company’s interviewing and onboarding processes because bringing in and retaining top talent will help promote growth within a company.

What skills have you learned?

During my time at Savant, I have developed many hard and soft skills. The one I am most proud of is the development of my confidence in communication. I was given the opportunity to discuss my ideas and opinions openly during our team meetings without fear of judgment. Also, with the support of my supervisor, I was encouraged to make screening calls for internal candidates, where I learned what to ask and look for within the conversations, I had with them. 

I also had the chance to improve my organizational and planning skills. With the onboarding of new personnel, a lot of planning goes into setting up training schedules. I had the opportunity to schedule training for several new employees, while also assisting my supervisor in planning and conducting new training based on their human resources platform. With Employment Hero still being very new to the company, it was interesting to work alongside Eliziana as we researched and discovered all the features the platform had to offer.

Lastly, I was given the opportunity to increase my abilities in research and data analysis. During the course of my internship, I conducted and produced two separate competitor analysis with various parameters. This let me glean insights into what other companies are doing and allowed me to compare Savant’s strengths and weaknesses compared to their competitors. This information can be used as a key attraction tool for recruitment and retention or can pinpoint weaker areas that need improvement. 

What was your experience of the company culture at savant?

I have always heard that the recruitment sector was a toxic environment. At Savant however, I was pleasantly surprised by how much everyone was willing to help each other out in order to see each other succeed. Everyone was genuinely interested in any idea’s that I had to share, and even though I was internal human resources, everyone made me feel included. The workplace setting also made it easier to have casual conversations to break up the routine of individual work. I loved sitting around the conference table and just listening to all the conversations being had. It was definitely never a dull moment. Especially on Wednesday meetings, I learned so much random knowledge because at the end of the meeting there was some type of trivia quiz. I really loved how Savant strives to add a little fun to everything!

How has your time at Savant helped your personal growth?

I truly cherished my time at Savant. I made true friendships with everyone that I know will last a lifetime, and I really got to take a deeper dive into human resources. It has helped show me what path I want to take for my future career, and I couldn’t be more thankful. This has definitely been an internship to remember, thank you Savant for giving me this opportunity! I wish everyone all the success they deserve, and I can’t wait to see how the company grows!
