HFC alumna Zeinab Hachem was excited to return to her alma mater, this time as an employee. She recently joined the College as a human resources assistant.

“What attracted me to this job at HFC was the good experience I had while attaining my associate degree here. I had good professors and remember the financial aid staff being so helpful when I started out as a student,” she recalled. “Even though I’ve only been at HFC for a short period of time, I have come across many kind and helpful faculty members. The best part of my job is that I get to meet and welcome newly-hired employees.”

Hachem reports to HFC Assistant Director of Human Resources Lynn Borczon. Her duties include:

  • Customer service work that includes answering phone calls, greeting visitors, and assisting with background checks, scheduling, and applicant inquiries
  • Examining employee files for employment verification requests
  • Keeping employee records current and maintaining personnel files
  • Creating and filing documents, records, and reports
  • Providing support to members of the HR team

“We are excited to have Zeinab as part of the HR Team!” said Borczon. “Her experience at the City of Dearborn and her experiences as a student at HFC are definite assets to the College.”

From City Council to HFC

A lifelong Dearborn resident, Hachem is the second of five children. A graduate of Dearborn High School, she earned her associate degree in business administration from HFC in 2017. Transferring to the University of Michigan-Dearborn, she earned her bachelor’s degree in business administration and her certificate in financial planning. At UM-Dearborn, she participated in the Talent Gateway Program and earned the (M)Talent Distinction.

Hachem worked as a clerical assistant for the Dearborn City Council for 5½ years. Dearborn City Councilwoman and HFC alumna Leslie Herrick was sorry to see Hachem go.

“Zeinab is phenomenal, a real pleasure to work with,” said Herrick. “She’s very personable and helpful to everyone she meets. She follows up on everything she’s asked to do. Most importantly, she’s a team player and she’s a wonderful colleague. We’re sad she left, but the City Council’s loss is the College’s gain, as the saying goes. HFC is a good move for her, and I wish her all the best as she takes the next step in her career.”
