HR Manager in the making, Grace Juliet

My name is Juliet Grace and I am privileged to say that am working with East Africa’s largest safari company Great Lakes Safaris. I attained my current position because of the moral support and inspiration I got from Vanessa Atim MD ProInterns. Because of the kind of person she is, she sees good and greatness in each individual, with her efforts, passions and energies many of us young professionals now have an opportunity to access internship roles, volunteer and entry job opportunities.

I joined ProInterns as an Administrative assistant with no experience held before, with an open mind, I was so eager with a burning desire and craving to learn. Being an Intern Administrative Assistant for a start up like ProInterns has been quite an exciting experience. I have learnt a lot like managing an organization’s social media platforms; my communication skills have greatly improved both online and physical communication.

I am now able use mail Chimp to send mail to the different subscribers as well as create and send out newsletters in addition to monitoring the ProInterns website from the back-end. All in all, being part of the ProInterns team is such an exciting opportunity and having to live to see it extremely successful in the future, as a well-established out sourcing recruitment site and brand not only in Uganda but in Africa as a whole is my long term goal and I am sure this will all come to pass with our Hard work and dedication.

My role has seen me perform and improve in the following ways, I have been in charge of answering and directing phone calls, organizing and scheduling appointments, writing and distribution of emails, correspondence memos and forms, rendering assistance in the preparations of regularly scheduled social media posts, maintain contact lists, provide general support to visitors, act as the point of contact for internal and external clients, putting up new listings and opportunities on the web-site while encouraging students to sign up on the platform.

With this skill set gained, I managed to land myself a new role, watch this space as I am your next well suited and positioned Human Resource Manager.

Juliet Grace Luwedde.
