Sandra Camarillo of Goshen, Indiana, will graduate from Goshen College with the Class of 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in public relations and marketing.

What are you doing in your internship?
I write articles, both for Connection (an internal website for employees) and for use on the public website. I assist Marketing Manager Allison Schrock with a variety of credit union materials and projects. My biggest project has been planning for Youth Savings Week. I have also been assigned to translate materials from English to Spanish. My favorite assignment is uploading articles to the website. So far, I have had exposure to a wide variety of projects.
What have you liked the most about your internship?
I like that I am given a task or assignment and I’m trusted to work through it on my own. I get to use my own creativity and ideas to develop articles. I’ve also enjoyed the friendly atmosphere I’ve experienced here at Everence. Everyone is very willing to help me work through a problem or answer any questions I have.
What is the most valuable thing you’ve learned throughout your internship?
I have been able to see firsthand how your values can align with your work. You don’t have to sacrifice one for the other. It’s been very valuable to be a part of an organization that allows employees to live out their values through their work.
