Best thing about the internship
Since I'm not exactly sure what I want to do with my future, just knowing that this internship would have possibilities, opportunities, people to mentor you through these types of questions, that's what really attracted me.
Greatest memory of the internship program
It was really fun connecting with people that I wouldn't normally run into because they're from different states, colleges, departments, and so a couple of us even exchanged information, set up job shadows in each other's departments. It was great.
Biggest challenge for you
I didn't really know what to expect, but I just showed up my first day, super nervous. But then people just talked you right through. They have a big banquet and you get used to your day-to-day activities, you see how a corporate world works.
Most surprising thing you've learned about State Farm
My specific case being a mathematics and Hispanic studies major, just shows that there is a place for everyone at State Farm, no matter what weird major combination you have.
One suggestion for incoming interns
It's more than insurance; it's something everybody should look into, even if you think oh, I'm not a business major, definitely look into it. They have opportunities for everyone.
