Insurance Underwriting Intern

June - August 2019 • Hartford, CT

What I liked

I loved being in the Aetna headquarters location! Most of the interns were also in Hartford, so I got to meet many different students from all over. All the interns were asked to solve a business problem presented by Aetna, so it was really fun to work with my group to create a presentation on our solution. I loved that Aetna organized many intern events, programs, and trainings, so I could meet people and learn about their experience at Aetna.

What I wish was different

I wish the internship was longer because it takes a while to get used to the building and the work that I was doing. By the time I got really comfortable with my job, summer was over.

Advice

My biggest advice is to network! I made many new contacts this summer just by asking if I could shadow people. I was able to network with people in my department and in many different departments as well.

Finance Intern

June - August 2018 • Hartford, CT

What I liked

It was a 10-week long, paid internship that allowed me to get a feel of a department in which I was considering for a career. In week 8 we were invited to present of what we had done that Summer to a recruiter for a Finance Leadership Development Program within Aetna, and we found out on the last day of the internship if we were receiving a full-time offer to return in June 2019 after we graduated, which I did. As well as those who weren't graduating this school year were informed if they were receiving an offer to return for another internship.

What I wish was different

I wish it was longer. Although, I did get an offer to work part-time through the school, which I accepted and will continue to work there until my full-time position starts in June 2019.

Advice

One piece of advice I would share about this experience is to ask as many questions as you can, network with as many people as you can, and to soak up all the knowledge that you can.

Business Consultant

June - August 2019 • Blue Bell, PA

What I liked

Ease of networking, setting up informational interviews with executive management Capstone project allowed us to develop a real idea that could have been implemented Ability to connect with and talk to other students from across the US Intern conference allowed us to meet and network with all of the other summer associates

What I wish was different

More direct communication with my manager More tasks/assignments relevant to management/business More interaction within the remote offices

Advice

Take advantage of every opportunity you can to set yourself apart from the competition. By doing this, I was able to get the attention of several executive leaders as well as negotiate for a higher salary with my return offer. Don't be afraid to reach out to your managers/company leaders (especially if setting up an informational interview)! They are always so excited to help because so few people are willing and determined enough to set up a meeting. Make sure you do your research on them/their area of expertise first so you are able to have an actual conversation. Don't forget to take note of one or two things that stood out to you from your conversation and incorporate those things into a thank you email. UTILIZE LINKEDIN! I made so many connections and added a wide variety of people to my network, it has really helped expose me to recruiters as well as allowed me to learn more about different areas of business I hadn't known too much about before.

Actuarial Analyst

May - August 2019 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

I worked on a regional commercial team in one of Aetna’s national hubs. Here I was able to work alongside 50 actuaries at various levels, as well as four other interns. In my three-ish months as an intern I was able to contribute to every active project my team of 8, head some process improvements that allowed me to work with a senior member of our team, and produce an independent study that allowed me to get acquainted with our executive director. This office has a younger demographic, and felt lively and interactive compared to other companies with similar departments.

What I wish was different

Nothing! I really enjoyed my experience here.

Advice

Ask questions and get comfortable asking dumb questions, you’re 100% allowed to not know yet, but find the answer.
