Investment Planning Intern

November 2020 Akron, OH
“Valmark is a very inclusive company that puts as much effort into their interns as they do their full-time employees. Everyone I have come in contact with has been so nice and willing to help me adjust to my position. The company values are shown in every interaction weather it's a presentation with the executives or just a conversation with a fellow collogue. So far, it has been a great experience as far as learning and networking. ”

Business Development Intern

October 2021 Akron, OH
“I will echo what everyone else says who has interned at Valmark. The culture is second to none. I have genuinely enjoyed coming to work for the majority of my days here. I am about four months deep in my internship experience, and I feel like I have gained many career skills already. Something that plagues students entering the workforce is a fear of failure, and a lack of humility. I too have had these struggles. What I have learned is that Valmark supports humility, learning & growth through great management and culture. I have been given plenty of room to take ownership of my role and I have learned to take ownership of my failures and my successes. Team members value your work, value your ideas, and respect you as if you were a full-time employee, which is rare. I would highly recommend interning/work at Valmark to anyone who sees a role available that they can fit.”
