Meet Line – HR Student assistant
Line studies for a Master’s degree in Business Administration and Psychology at CBS, and works 15 hours a week as student assistant in HR&Com. Line lives in Nørrebro, Copenhagen.
Turning theory into practice
Line’s job involves assisting the HR partner’s work in all steps from managing and editing job postings, to personality tests to the final recruitment. Moreover, she has assisted the Communication department in employer branding activities. Working with these tasks provides Line with a holistic view of the HR function. Line’s theoretical knowledge of Psychology, Change Management and Organizational Development clearly benefits her work, as it enables her to understand how people work, and why people behave the way, they do.
High degree of responsibility
Line believes student assistants are assigned a great deal of responsibility and adds she appreciates her manager’s responsiveness towards her ideas. Line explains:
"We have many employees and student assistants from DTU, so I suggested that we increased the awareness of FOSS among students from other universities as well. A close colleague of mine supported the idea, so we ended up agreeing with the manager to have FOSS represented at CBS Career fair – the fair turned out to be a huge success in terms of creating awareness about FOSS."
Innovative and informal culture
Line finds it exciting to work in a place where innovation thrives, and where great diversity exists among employees. Yet she still finds the atmosphere to be informal and down-to-earth. “People are in general very kind and friendly, and often up for a casual conversation”, Line says. FOSS also occasionally takes the initiative to plan different sporting events. “Recently, I took part in a running race. It was great fun to compete against my colleagues” Line states excited. Besides running, Line enjoys attending the weekly yoga class at the FOSS gym.
