“COUNTRY makes it a priority to give their interns meaningful work and an opportunity to directly better the company.”
What struck me the most about COUNTRY Financial is how much they truly value their interns’ ideas and their work. It was not the stereotypical “make coffee runs, scan papers, etc.” type of internship by any means.
Throughout the duration of the internship, I was offered many opportunities to have my ideas heard and respected. There were two instances that really stood out to me. The first being the case study competition, in which my group and I, along with all the other interns, presented innovative suggestions that were appreciated by some of the top leaders of the company.
The second instance was when a summer-long project that the other intern in my department and I worked on was implemented for the financial representatives’ use. The project helped make their process more efficient, enhancing their client’s experience in regards to brokered solutions. This truly displayed to me that COUNTRY makes it a priority to give their interns meaningful work and an opportunity to directly better the company.
