Generali was an amazing opportunity to get to know what it's like working in a corporate environment. They Give great training on the different software companies use to communicate and organize data like Teams, Outlook, Laserfiche, Salesforce, and excel.

Captive Desk Support (Intern)

October 2020 - December 2021 • Parsippany-Troy Hills, NJ

What I liked

I enjoyed building on my Excel skills and being introduced to a wide variety of other technical programs like Outlook, Laserfiche, and other internal BI. GEB hosts an amazing workforce that is both intelligent and cooperative here in the U.S. and abroad. My favorite aspect of GEB is the connections I have made with my colleagues as they are all very kind and help facilitate a learning environment.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have had the GEB experience in person in order to get to know everyone better.

Advice

Insurance is oceans wide, inches deep. It may seem like a lot of jargon at first, but understanding vocabulary is half of the job. It all makes sense in time!

What I liked

GEB's Team is well-trained and very supportive for interns. It supports collaboration and working with multiple teams within the organization. I really liked and enjoyed having supportive colleagues as I was learning the business.

Advice

I would recommend everyone to try to get this experience as it would give interns a lot of exposure in a short time.
