Business Leadership Intern

June - August 2018 • Lakeland, FL

What I liked

It allowed me to grow and gain professional corporate world experience that I wouldn't have otherwise. I was able to connect with students in similar situations to me and work in a team. I was able to get a full-time offer along with other individuals that I had built relationships with over the summer.

What I wish was different

I wish I had a better understanding of what the internship was going to be like before going into it. I loved every aspect of the internship while I was doing it , but prior to started I wasn't sure on exactly what I was going to be doing.

Advice

Be open to new experiences and seize every opportunity that comes your way. Everyone here is willing to help you and is looking out for your best interests.

Business Development Analyst

June - August 2018 • Fredericksburg, VA

What I liked

Pros: Great Mentor ship if you are looking for opportunities for personal growth, transparent leadership, access to the staff in the entire building so you can reach out to anyone in order to get more information for an area that you are interested in whether that be professional development or career opportunities. Great experience overall. Assigned work schedule along with what a day to day looks like.

What I wish was different

N/A

Advice

If you choose to work intern here, make sure you dont stress yourself out. It could be intimidating to present your projects to the Regional Vice Presidents and other officers but just know all feedback is good feedback and it is an opportunity to learn and grow. Make sure you reach out to people who you think can help you further your career whether it be at GEICO or somewhere else. Everyone is willing to help you.

Business Leadership Development Intern

May - August 2018 • Macon, GA

What I liked

The internship was awesome. We had actual meaningful work within the company while learning about all the aspects within the insurance industry while developing my personal leadership skills and creating great relationships.

What I wish was different

Their was a lot of competition between each of the regional buildings in Macon throughout the internship, that shouldn't have really been necessary.

Advice

This is a great internship that shows you how a large corporation works separately, while all benefiting the greater whole of the company. I had so much fun and feel that I benefited personally and professionally from this opportunity while solving actual problems the company was facing.

Business Leadership Intern

May - August 2018 • Richardson, TX

What I liked

I liked that we got to divide into groups of interns that I did not know in order to identify opportunities in the company and present it to upper-management. I got to make new lifelong friends and learn what the corporate world was like. I was able to learn so much about an unfamiliar industry- insurance. I got to participate in philanthropy events to help out the community. I got to learn more about my own strengths and weaknesses and grow as a business professional and team member.

What I wish was different

I wish there had been a project based on the technology of the company, since that is my major. But, the IT team is located in Maryland so the Dallas location does not deal with it. It just would have been interesting to learn about because GEICO has a great mobile app.

Advice

I would say to be open-minded and take every opportunity seriously. The coordinators and upper-management notice everything so act professional and ask lots of questions! As you work on projects, utilize as many resources as you can in the company to get the full experience. Reach out to upper-management, other regions, the IT department, and call competitors to get the most amount of information to back up your ideas.

Business Leadership Intern

June - July 2018 • San Diego, CA

What I liked

The internship was very hands on, and I was never treated like the "intern". Everyday I felt like an important asset to the company, the multiple projects that I worked on were presented directly to management. Additionally, the company has a true open door policy, anytime I had questions there were multiple managers that I could go to for help!

What I wish was different

I would not have changed anything about this internship, everyone wanted the best for me!

Advice

One piece of advice I would share about this experience would be to not be afraid to make mistakes. Every project that I worked on throughout the internship was a real issue that GEICO wanted a fresh pair of eyes to analyze and present on.

Business Leadership Intern

June - August 2018 • Coralville, IA

What I liked

I was able to get a true feel for the company. They gave us a project to complete, which required us to interview associates from all different positions within the branch. This gave me a great opportunity to work on my professional communication skills within a real workplace setting.

What I wish was different

I wish the schedule had been formatted differently for the other activities that we did outside of the project.

Advice

Regardless of what major you are, I think this is a beneficial internship. There were interns with business related degrees, but there were also some with liberal arts focused degrees. The diversity truly made the projects turn out well because of all the different perspectives.

Business Leadership Intern

June - July 2018 • Virginia Beach, VA

What I liked

-Tons of one-on-one time with upper level management! -You receive lots of feedback about your leadership and presentation skills. -Develop lasting friendships with fellow interns.

What I wish was different

NOTHING! The internship caters to everyone’s want and needs. For example, I am a marketing major so I wanted to learn more about their marketing department. The director of HR reached out and set me up with a contact in their marketing department in DC and I was able to set up a call with her.

Advice

Be eager to learn. Take advantage of EVERY opportunity. Be receptive to feedback. HAVE FUN!!!

Business Leadership Summer Intern

June - August 2018 • Fredericksburg, VA

What I liked

Incredible access to management. Like, it's crazy - if we had a question for the regional vice president, we could email him at any time and he'd get back within an hour. Everyone I met in management was driven, humble, and deeply knowledgeable.

What I wish was different

A little too much handholding at some points. I wish I'd realized early on that EVERYTHING we were learning could end up being relevant for our projects.

Advice

Pay close attention and really listen when managers describe the function of their departments and how it all connects. It will let you do your job better.

May - August 2018 • Washington, DC

What I liked

The company culture was amazing. They really do have an open door policy where everyone is available to you as a resource. I was able to talk to VPs and managers from across the company and everyone had a great attitude. I loved the constant communication between our managers, scrum masters, and other interns.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have gotten to do more work with data science since that is what I was hoping to do initially.

Advice

Don't be complacent! If you're not getting enough work, ask for more!
