Masters of Industrial Relations FT

Master of Industrial Relations (MIR) Candidate 2017 at Queen's University

I am a bilingual Master of Industrial Relations candidate who is specifically interested in recruitment and talent acquisition. I believe that an organization's most valuable asset is its human capital. This value is realized when effective testing and selection methods are utilized in the recruitment process. My human capital approach to human resource management is aimed at acquiring new talents who are not only exceptional candidates but also are the most suited individuals to an organization. This results in both high employee retention and a boost in organizational productivity. Further, human capital management is reactive to the modern business complexity's trends, gaps and changes. Therefore, as a human resource professional I will act as an organization's sensor in order to allow the organization to continue to progress without interruption.

My capacity in talent acquisition and recruitment lies in my ability to super-connect. Super connectors are individuals who build close relationships with diverse people very quickly. As a super connector I can match people with opportunities and, in doing so, leave my connections with a positive opinion of myself and my own abilities. Moreover, I always strive to stay '​in the know'​. This way I know what each of my connections is capable of, who is in their network, and what my connections need or are looking for. This allows me to instantaneously connect people based on needs and abilities, while increasing their own value.
