Episode Two: HR bounty hunter with Gabriel Wilhelm

HR specialist, Gabriel Wilhelm, recently completed a bachelor’s degree in human resources and labour relations from Athabasca University while also working as a recruiter.

He applied his skills to help companies find the perfect candidates with the tenacity of a bounty hunter! However, like many people, Gabriel saw his own role downsized with the onset of COVID-19. Now, he’s making the most of this time to add to his education with an MBA. We talk about...
  • Choosing open studies before landing on a direction for his degree
  • The importance of flexible class schedules when working and going to school and how online learning was a great fit
  • The many practical benefits of an education in HR and how Gabriel applied his learning on the job
  • Working in recruitment and the differences between a recruitment agency and in house recruitment
  • How Gabriel's time as an online student at Athabasca prepared him for learning online this Fall with his MBA program
