Business Leadership Development Intern

June - August 2019 • Tucson, AZ

What I liked

I liked getting to know the other interns and being able to work in teams on different projects. I also enjoyed listening to leadership seminars by management leaders at Geico and getting to shadow leaders in the different departments to see what their job is like day-to-day.

What I wish was different

I wish we had more projects that we could present bi-weekly instead of at the end of the internship because after a while, working on the same projects had gotten boring and repetitive.

Advice

Don't procrastinate your projects until the very end and utilize all the resources you have in order to produce the best work!

Business Leadership Summer Internship

June - August 2019 • Fredericksburg, VA

What I liked

I loved how much GEICO really invested into the interns. They truly equipped us to be able to perform well and to succeed in many aspects off our personal and professional development. I liked the real-time business project that we were given and I loved the fact that they were willing to implement some of our recommendations.

What I wish was different

I wish I had a better understanding at the beginning of what I was getting myself into. I knew I would be trained as a leader and get to work on projects, but I had no idea how much GEICO truly had in store for each of us throughout the internship!

Advice

I would recommend living in the apartments with the other interns if you are going to take this internship. It was an amazing opportunity to get to engage with the other interns outside of the work setting. We played volleyball, went on walks, got food, had game nights, and just hung out. It definitely added to the overall experience.

UI Designer Intern

June - August 2019 • Washington, DC

What I liked

I loved the design team there. It is really small and everyone knows each other pretty well. What you do in your internship really matters and it was super fulfilling.

What I wish was different

I wish it had maybe gone on for a month more. 10 weeks felt kinda short. Also, my friend’s offer after the internship wasn’t great and seemed like a low salary for working in DC :/ also If you are not working in design, it may be a bit of a crap shoot

Advice

Take on as much work as you think you can handle, but don’t say yes to everything or you will be overworked. If you don’t have enough to do, ask for more!!

Business Leadership Intern

June - August 2019 • Buffalo, NY

What I liked

The group of people I worked with.

What I wish was different

I wish that it started earlier in May! I also wish that I was ore interested in the industry because it seems as though it offers competitive pay to its employees.

Advice

I would be sure to be as prepared as possible for phone and in-person interviews. There is many steps to the interview process and you must be prepared, and also be yourself. The company appreciates authenticity.

Business Summer Leadership Intern

June - August 2019 • Poway, CA

What I liked

We got to do a lot of community and team building events. They also celebrate everyone's birthday with lunches. The internship is very data driven. Overall great experience and I'm glad to have it on my resume.

What I wish was different

Some things felt micro managed, but I guess when you're dealing with a group of 20-21 year olds. you have to pull in the reigns a little.

Advice

Definitely apply for it. Great opportunities within the company and great pay!

Business Leadership Intern

June - August 2019 • San Diego, CA

What I liked

I really enjoyed the opportunity to collaborate in teams to solve real-world business problems. I learned a lot about process implementation of solutions, as well as more about my own leadership style. It was also a great opportunity to refine my presentation skills. I was able to establish team and mentor relationships that I have maintained to this day!

What I wish was different

I wish the internship was longer than 8 weeks. It would have been great to do another project or two.

Advice

Always be open to learning and be sure to demonstrate leadership maturity by taking initiative to go above and beyond. Setting goals for yourself at the beginning of the internship is really rewarding as well. It is amazing to see the progress you make as a leader in just 8 weeks!

GEICO Internship

June - August 2019 • Fredericksburg, VA

What I liked

Working with students my age but from all different backgrounds. We all were similar in age and were rising seniors, so we were very likeminded however we all strived for that leadership position. It helped my grow professionally while still building my leadership and other skills. During this 9 week internship, we were given 3-4 projects, some larger than others but all required working in new teams and presenting to all department heads, VP, and even the CEO at one point.

What I wish was different

Honestly, there is not one thing I would change. I wish it was longer!

Advice

If you want to be pushed and strive to be the best version of yourself than this is the internship for you! There are times where you are completely stressed out however, you learn new skills, get real world work experience and get to expand your network with amazing people.

Business leadership intern

June - August 2019 • Woodbury, NY

What I liked

It was a very welcoming and inviting experience. A good introduction to an office lifestyle with a good company culture.

What I wish was different

The internship class was very large, it was easy to feel overwhelmed in large group settings and the experience wasn’t as individualized as I would have wanted.

Advice

Having an internship gave me a piece of real world experience to have a better understanding before graduation. I would advocate for everyone to get as much work experience to build relationships and find out what you like and dislike in a job and workplace before graduating.

IT Intern

June - August 2019 • Chevy Chase, MD

What I liked

The work environment was great! Everyone was super helpful, they all loved working for GEICO, and the internship was very well organized.

What I wish was different

Being randomly assigned a team could be hit or miss, which would detract from the experience. I got lucky and loved my team, but some interns wished they were on a different team.

Advice

Ask questions about anything and everything. I learned way more about the company and systems they had because I just asked other people I met about their projects. If you only focus on your project and don't try to meet people, you will not get as much out of it as you could have.

Business Leadership Summer Intern

May - August 2019 • Indianapolis, IN

What I liked

This internship was a lot of fun! We were able to present to the senior leadership team multiple times and really get to know the leaders within the office. Everyone in the office was extremely kind and willing to help us in every project that we we challenged with.

What I wish was different

We had a very large group this summer which caused for a lot of conflict. Moving forward smaller groups would work better.

Advice

Go in ready to do presentations and learn about the business. GEICO offers a lot of knowledge about the insurance industry and GEICO as a whole. The GEICO office was both welcoming and a fun environment to want to work in moving forward.

June - August 2019 • Fredericksburg, VA

What I liked

There was a lot of time spent to developing us as professionals. Tons of feedback from supervisors and peers. Opportunity to work on real business problems.

What I wish was different

If you finished your project, you had absolutely nothing to do. Very hierarchical and bureaucratic.

Advice

To make the most out of it, 1) form a relationship with your supervisor 2) seek out additional mentors and projects.
