May Reflection – Winnie

Winnie's Reflection

Keywords: , ,

What were your initial expectations coming to work at U+, and how have they evolved after your first month on the job? 

My initial expectation of my role (HR Coordinator and Teaching Assistant) at U+ was the classic screening and interviewing hiring process, with teaching and camp counsellor role at the camp with kids. Although my expectations were evident and existed at the company, there are so much more to my positions to explore. There is so much more to the hiring process in HR, including job fairs that reflect both before and after working terms of employees. Also, U+ has options to 1on1 virtual class, as well as the whole picture and process of running a summer camp, rather than just the teaching itself.

What were your first interactions with the team and how have you been working to build relationships between you and your fellow team members?  


My first interaction with the team was with Tanya on HR prep and Rishia for virtual teaching handovers, virtually. They have been of great and meaningful help to my onboarding and preparing to take over tasks in the company. My main tasks as the HR Coordinator were mostly handovers from Tanya and her handover document was extremely helpful to me and provided me with detailed processes for different positions and placements to reference and look back to in uncertainty.

How do you envision your term at U+ contributing to your personal and professional growth? 

Teaching and pursuing a career in education is my long term goal and passion. U+ and YRES provides various teaching opportunities for my professional goal and pathway. Additionally, HR is another field that I am very interested in. Moreover, HR provides me with the opportunity to meet new people and communicate with people to see their personal growth. It is also a very independent and fast-paced atmosphere, where I can accommodate and transit better in future opportunities.

Who do you want to show some appreciation to the most and why? 

Tanya – She has been especially helpful and much of my HR duties were handed over by her. Tanya is always supportive of my work and I know I can come to her if I need any help. Moreover, her handover document really supported me in my work and her tips in the HR process has made my work more efficient.
