Paid Summer Human Resources Internship

American Legacy Foundation is currently searching for applicants for the Summer 2015 Internship Program.

In addition to working within their respective departments, interns will be exposed to tobacco knowledge, current issues in public health and career development opportunities.  The internship duration is June 2015 through August 2015.  Interns are paid competitively (including a travel stipend) and are eligible to participate in the program for up to two semesters.

The Human Resources Intern will support Legacy's Human Resources expertise center in various function areas and with special projects to broaden their knowledge of the HR function. They will assist with performance management projects, learn HRIS processes and assist in processing employee changes/updates, file/discard HR files and contracts consistent with Legacy's document retention policy, read and understand Legacy policies, procedures, and benefits to answer employee inquiries, and assist with updating benefits information into an HRIS. Experience working on multiple tasks and projects in a fast paced environment is essential.

Ideal candidates are students currently pursuing an undergraduate degree with an interest in learning more about Human Resources as a profession. An interest in public health or tobacco control is a plus. Those interested in applying should apply here.
