I received such a well-rounded HR experience and got a lot of exposure to many hands-on projects. From production operators to the VP of North America, it was great to work and collaborate with so many amazing people. I was involved in many different aspects within Human Resources. I also was a huge point of contact for our workers at Constellium, as I made sure I was available to meet their needs when my department was away or not in office.
