“The progression that I have experienced while under this COUNTRY Financial roof has made a tremendous imprint on my life.”
The culture at COUNTRY Financial has made my time here one to remember. COUNTRY Financial does well in fostering their interns’ growth and development, and for that I am forever grateful.
In my internship, I was assigned a large project called Learning & Leading. Through this project, I was tasked with supervising and mentoring 23 high school interns. I assisted them with learning financial literacy, developing workplace professionalism, and setting the stage for future career paths. When I reflect on the program, I personally gained much more than I taught them. The lessons received from the students, guidance offered from supervisors, and support and respect shown by my department far exceeded my expectations. The progression that I have experienced while under this COUNTRY Financial roof has made a tremendous imprint on my life.
Learning & Leading demonstrates the organization’s dedication to the youth in our communities, and being involved in service projects reflect the importance of corporate social responsibility. COUNTRY Financial has been an amazing company to work for, and I will take the “COUNTRY Pride” that is inside me everywhere I go.
