Clean Water

  Water is crucial to our lively hood. There’s plenty of it around us however, it’s not always clean. Often times it's full of bacteria, chlorine, and even hormones. None of us actually want to drink that. It’s really gross and can even be harmful to our well being. However, there is a cure! Filtration systems clean our water and allow us to be hydrated without the risk of illness. 

 

Data is the same. It's crucial to the lively hood of your business, we’re constantly surrounded by it, yet it gets messy. If your data isn’t correct it can harm your company. If it’s not easily accessible it can cause a stall in workflow.  What if the cure was the same? What if there was a way to filter that data like water is filtered? What if accessing clean data was as easy as getting a drink from the water dispenser on your fridge? 



What if you’ve thought this exact thing before? What if you're passionate about clean and easily accessible data?




If that’s the case, I know some people you might like to talk to.

People: The Business of People.

Ops: Operating at their full potential.

The old saying goes, if you love what you do you’ll never work a day in your life. Why do so many talented people end up working for companies they don’t believe in? 

 

At PeopleOps we fully believe in working with companies who we love. Companies, whose mission we are proud to stand behind. Our job is to line up crazy talented people with companies that matter, companies they believe in. We are all about culture, it’s the most important ingredient in our sourcing recipe. 

 

Being able to love going into work every day is huge. Being able to talk about the mission of our company with pride is a wonderful thing. Actually liking your boss, who even does that anymore? 

 

We do..  Crazy right? 

That’s how we think it’s supposed to be. We want to put the human connection back in corporate world.  We believe talking to people like they are actually people is a really great idea. 

What if your job was fun? What if you thought your office was the coolest places in town? What if your co-workers became real friendships.

 

There’s a magic in the realness of humanity, we want to harness that in every aspect of the job hunt. Let's stop talking like we’re robots and actually talk to each other.

 

Humanity is defined by our careers. Shouldn’t you love your career? If you don’t know your companies “why” you probably shouldn't work there, if it doesn’t align with your personal “why” you definitely shouldn’t work there.

I love my job. My boss is really cool. I hang out with my co-workers on the weekends. ;)

Wanna be able to say the same thing?

Building experience: Forging through the world of internships

Aspiring interns are constantly drilled with the same concepts: experience is everything, network constantly, constantly revise your resume, and highlight your skills. This is the supposed magic potion at landing a dream internship, but one key element is repeatedly looked over when preparing for interviews. 

We talk a lot about the value of a PeopleOps internship, and the importance of gaining real experience through internships. Interns need to consider what value a potential opportunity holds for them specifically, and how they can convey that to internship coordinators.

While internships can help you further understand concepts developed through higher education, they can also launch you into new opportunities. Are there non-traditional areas of your industry that intrigue you? Are there skills and responsibilities you're interested in but have yet to encounter? If you land in an organization focused on employee development, your internship may be the perfect chance to expand your horizons.

So, as you slave over building the perfect first impression, stop to consider the skills and tools you want to build through an internship. This expresses to employers you have not only succeeded in the past, but you plan to build a strong future. You may not know exactly where you want to take your career, but pointing to new skills or experiences you want to gain is a great way to demonstrate that you are thinking ahead. 

More importantly, taking ownership of this will help steer your experience and the skills you gain during your time with the company. Seek out new projects during your internship. Exercise your creativity. Don’t be afraid to engage with experienced colleagues and upper management. You never know what types of skills you may acquire by taking the initiative, thinking outside of the box and offering to help! 

Forbes Best Internships for 2013: A Breakdown

Glassdoor released their Annual Interns report earlier this year, breaking down the ten most valuable companies to intern for in the country. These companies were the highest rated among previously employed interns, and highlight some of the key attributes of a successful internship program.

Some of the common themes among these top rating companies include an engaging, laid back, inclusive atmosphere where interns feel appreciated, easy access to upper management, and opportunities to impact the company's performance with real-world responsibilities. 

These three characteristics are the foundation of the PeopleOps internship program. Our company values learning through collaboration, creative thought, and experience, and the outcomes that come from it. The PeopleOps interns are a grouped tasked with real-world responsibilities, in a comfortable creative atmosphere where everyone is considered equals, and everyones ideas are valued.

#ProjectIntern

ProPublica recently launched a campaign to learn the ins and outs of the modern day internship. They're sending their own intern around the country to investigate the benefits and pitfalls of internships today.

While much controversy surrounds the issue of intern compensation, little discussion involves the value of internships for students. Are students learning valuable skills by interning? Does an internship really heighten your marketability in the job market?

Our PeopleOps interns are inspired to cultivate their innate creativity, whilst immersing themselves in the processes of an M&A Advisory firm. We appreciate our responsibility and privilege to teach young minds, reinforcing concepts learnt in the classroom through experience. 

A day as an intern in our office is part work, part play. Our interns are trusted with real responsibility, working directly with top management. They witness deals, brainstorm strategies, and research opportunities on a daily basis.

These responsibilities are achieved through critical and creative thinking: the "play". Our interns are motivated to think outside the box, utilizing their unique perspectives, interests, and experiences. We value young minds and their ability to question the norm. No idea is too big or too crazy.

 

#ProjectIntern is a campaign run by the non-profit investigative journalism team at ProPublica.org. It is an ongoing project series, and you can keep up with new related stories here 

Welcome to the Hub

The PeopleOps Hub is a resource for students, post-grads, and young professionals to learn about the PeopleOps community. You'll hear from everyone from current interns to senior management about the exciting things we're doing here at PeopleOps (with the occasional post-grad anecdote thrown in).

As much as we love a piping hot cup of coffee, we understand the importance and value of our interns as intellectuals, not baristas. PeopleOps employs bright young minds prepared to apply the concepts they've learned during their college career and learn from the PeopleOps team. Our internship program is modeled to give you real world experience, involving interns in every step of our processes. 

A Variety of Fields

PeopleOps manages clients in a variety of industries, and our interns work on a team specific to one field. We want our employees to be inspired by their work, working in fields that drive their motivation towards success. From Apparel to Energy, we cover a range of topics sure to spark each employee's interests.

Acquisitions

At PeopleOps, a large part of our time and energy is put into acquiring exciting companies with which we see a future. Our interns experience the entire acquisition process, from research to closing deals. They learn the ins and outs of interacting in a business environment, including financial negotiations and partnership development. 

Growth Creation

Modern marketing techniques known collectively as "Inbound Marketing" techniques are quickly replacing traditional push media. PeopleOps interns develop creative strategies that pull in potential customers, create a community environment, and develop long-term relationships with customers.

Human Capital

PeopleOps has reinvented the recruiting process, and interns here learn the ins and outs of contract sourcing and executive search. Interns witness every step of our unique recruiting process, and learn how to identify the perfect candidate for a client.
