Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska

Information Services Intern

December 2020 - March 2021 • Omaha, NE

What I liked

I loved being handed a real-world situation and, with the support of leadership, given the opportunity to solve the situation. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska is an excellent company to work for and will continuously invest their time in your growth.

What I wish was different

Advice

No matter who is in the room, if you have questions, ask questions. Regardless of the industry, company or profession, asking questions will help others and yourself gain a deeper understanding.

Actuarial Intern

May - August 2020 • Omaha, NE

What I liked

I loved being able to work with a diverse group of people to gain knowledge and insight into both general insurance concepts as well as Blue Cross Blue Shield products and processes. Even as a remote experience I was able to interact with people from all over the organization and work together on projects with my fellow interns.

What I wish was different

I wish the opportunity had been in-person, but there was of course nothing that could have been done about that.

Advice

If the internship is remote again in the future, put work into meeting more coworkers. It's a bit harder to get to know people virtually, but it's worth it to reach out and make more connections!

Data Analytics Intern

June 2020 • Omaha, NE

What I liked

I love how open and willing the members of my team have been to help me. There have been numerous occasions when someone has dropped everything to meet with me and help me learn and figure things out.

What I wish was different

My one wish was that I could have gone into the office.

Advice

Reach out. If you need help, if there is someone you want to talk to, if there is a department you want to learn more about, reach out. No one can read your mind, so if there is something you are curious about, just ask, people want to help you.
