"With the help of my mentor, coworkers, supervisors and director, I learned more than I ever could have imagined.”

An internship at COUNTRY Financial has been one of the best experiences I’ve had during college. Even on my very first day, I felt at home. I was given meaningful work and was offered opportunities to not only add value to my department, but also to the organization as a whole. With the help of my mentor, coworkers, supervisors and director, I learned more than I ever could have imagined.

During my internship, I was exposed to the entire audit process, helped build a database to assist on future audits, conducted sample testing, and was even performing an audit on my own in less than three months. I came to work excited each and every day knowing that my work was being valued and making a difference, both currently and in the future.

The corporate internship program adds value to you as a professional, but it also grants you opportunities to become a better person. Through activities like the Leadership Speaker Series and community volunteering, COUNTRY makes you a priority. This opportunity not only changed my professional life, but it also bettered my life as a whole.
