Our past interns had a fantastic time at LH&A. Read more!
“From my time working with Lynn at LH&A, I learned that it’s all about connecting with people. In an interview, asking questions to your interviewer such as ‘why do you enjoy working at this company’ demonstrates your interest in their experience and can help you garner helpful tidbits about the work environment itself.
While the interview is a great space to showcase your ability to be personable, personal touches are critical even before you get an interview. When you submit a cover letter, make sure that you tailor it to the job you are applying for. Have an experience that you think would apply to the job? Include it! Always incorporate words from the actual job description to demonstrate to your prospective employer that you thoroughly read the job description and care about the little details.
All in all, it’s about the personal touches!”
“I was an intern at Lynn Hazan & Associates, in my second year of university and was under Lynn’s direct supervision. I can attest to Lynn’s passion and dedication as both a recruiter and teacher.
Not only did I learn a great deal about recruitment within the marketing and communications field but also received exceptional guidance from Lynn about the corporate world. I learned important workplace communication skills, experience meeting deadlines, and took on projects that broadened my skill set. At the same time, though, I was given the freedom to come up with my own ideas and express my creativity to the firm in different ways, which helped me gain confidence to enter the corporate workforce. It is this commitment, passion, and drive that led me to grow outside of my college classes and prepare me for the real world, not only as a future employee in the workforce but as a female in the workforce.
I am forever grateful to Lynn for taking the time to enlighten me about all aspects of the workforce. She was able to sustain her philosophy of “you teach me, I teach you” by also treating her interns as friends and partners. I must also mention that Lynn placed me in my current position that I have been at for nearly 2 years at a medical association after I graduated from college. Lynn continues to maintain excellent relationships with her clients, candidates, and interns which portrays her drive to go above and beyond in her work. I continue to feel support from Lynn beyond my time as an intern at her firm and regard her as an inspiring influence for Chicago women!”
“I had a wonderful experience working as a marketing intern at Lynn Hazan and Associates. I gained knowledge of the recruiting industry and various social tools like WordPress, MailChimp, and Constant Contact. The internship offers flexible hours, class credit, and a great mentor like Lynn to work under. I am thankful to Lynn for giving me the opportunity.”
