Human resources practicums (known outside British Columbia as internships) break down into two fields: recruitment and HR management. In recruitment, you'll be placed with a specialty recruitment firm, focusing on recruitment for a single sector. You will place ads, review candidates, and conduct some screening interviews. In HR management, you will join an HR manager at a larger firm in the finance, services or manufacturing sector. You will assist them with payroll, benefits administration, and conflict resolution. In both types of placements you will also assist with basic office administrative support.
