Brian Li Class of 2018, BCom in Human Resources Management
Summer Intern, Human Resources Services, IKEA

I interned in the Human Resources Services Team at IKEA Hong Kong over the summer, and got the chance to experience first-hand what makes a values-based organisation and how a multinational giant like IKEA lives the values they preach and benefits employees and customers. During the internship, I was involved in a variety of recruitment activities and employee engagement planning and execution, including redesigning job advertisements, organising a large-scale recruitment event for the new store and the monthly employee relations activities. These were valuable opportunities for me to integrate my knowledge learnt from textbooks into the real business world. From my experience, I think what matters the most to succeed in a workplace is your attitude. Be proactive and keen on striving for continuous excellence can gain you not only experience, but also opportunities for you to further develop your skills and knowledge, and eventually realise your potential to the fullest.
