A day in the life of an Everence marketing intern
By Elise Romero
This is what my desk looked like in the morning before I got started working on projects!
During my time as an Everence® marketing intern, I had the chance to improve my writing skills. One of the projects I worked on involved writing a series of web articles, on topics that I developed with one of the other marketing interns. I also got to work on an article where I interviewed someone completely in Spanish - something I had never done before!
At 10:00 every morning, all Everence staff members based in the Goshen, Indiana, corporate office are invited to take a break. They have a variety of refreshment items, including juice, tea, coffee and hot chocolate. (My favorite break time drink was the hot chocolate!) It was a chance for me to interact with other employees and get to know people a little better!
My internship offered other opportunities for me to work on my Spanish! I translated sermon materials and articles into Spanish (some of which will be available at everence.com/spanish). Translating things from English to Spanish is very different than having a conversation with someone in Spanish, so I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to improve my Spanish writing skills through these different projects!
Once a week, all of the summer interns met with leaders throughout the company to learn about the wide variety of products and services Everence has to offer. Our lunch was provided, and we sometimes had the chance to win fun prizes! We learned about Everence member benefits, financial advisors and representatives, financial planning, investments, human resources and career opportunities, credit union services and much more.
I enjoyed the wide range of projects I worked on during my two months as an Everence marketing intern, including research projects, Spanish translations, article writing, data analysis and data quality. With such a variety of daily projects, I never got bored! And as long as I got my projects done by their assigned deadlines, I had the flexibility to organize and prioritize my approach to these projects in a way that best fit my working style. I am grateful for the opportunity to have spent a summer working at Everence!
