My last rotation had me bouncing all over the place! I began the rotation working with the Department of Child Services (DCS). I have come to discover that each department within Indiana State Government has a different feel and different dynamics. All are wonderful but all are different. I enjoyed my time getting to know the HR department at DCS and I only wish that I would have been able to spend more time with them. My time with them was short as I completed the project much faster than expected. My task was to create an automatically updated document that would keep track of all of their job openings. The goal was to enable SPD access to the list so they could include some of the openings in their weekly e-newsletter, Career INitiatives. Although this was a quick project, it was a lot of fun. I had no idea how resourceful the internet can be in helping promote your company in untraditional ways!
The lovely Recruitment Associates in Talent Acquisition showed me how to create automatic “recipes” through a site called, If This Then That. This website can do so many different things and I found it fascinating that something like this actually existed and how easy it was to use. I was also able to use this site to create automatic job posting updates for DCSjobs @DCSRecruiter on Twitter. Make sure you follow them!
It took a couple of days to see how the feeds would work so during my down time, I continued to work on my previous eScreen project with DWD as well as my culture climate survey with ISMHS. Remember how many surveys I created? Whew! It was a lot of work. The climate survey for ISMHS had closed and I was able to process the results and make the information easy to read for the Leadership team at ISMHS. I also began to analyze the surveys and see if I could come up with any recommendations. This was a lot of fun and I am glad I was able to see the end results.
Next week I will be working with Shadi Lilly again to complete the ISMHS recommendations. Then I am off to the Department of Education where I will be working on job descriptions and salary band reviews. I cannot wait to put into practice some of the concepts I am being taught at Kelley.
