Contributed by Kyle Schamberger, HR MAP. I recently returned to work full-time as an HR Management Associate after spending last summer being a MAP intern.
The HR Management Associate Program
The MAP is a program comprised of 3 rotations in various Human Resources (HR) disciplines and 2 more in a business area outside of HR. I worked on a project within HP’s Talent & Learning organization, which handles everything from instructional learning design and management of our HP Brain Candy social learning platform to talent and performance management.
I joined HP in July 2017 as a Business Analyst for Sales & Strategy Commercial Channel covering UK & Ireland. My key responsibilities were analyzing weekly sales and presenting these to channel management, supporting our Partner Business Managers on key partner initiatives as well as managing any ad-hoc requests that came from management.
How can a graduate of an irrelevant major snatch a marketing position in a big firm?
Tiffany (Chinese Name: Liu Ruiyang)’s career plan sets a good example.
Since her graduation in 2014, Tiffany took just over one year to complete this important transition for her career, switching from Supplier to Client. She worked in an advertising agency, mainly involved in the media buying of e-commerce advertising before her job hopping to HP, one of her clients at that time.
