I'm currently interning at a local office United Way, but in the department of marketing and absolutely LOVE my experience *so far*! My day-to-day routine consists of mostly inserting info into excel sheets, coming up with social media posts and marketing, and writing office emails and press releases.
Former Community Health Navigator Intern at United Way of Metropolitan Chicago
almost 2 years ago
In the beginning of the internship, I spent a lot of time in the office reading policy briefs and watching educational videos/webinars about Medicaid, Marketplace insurance, and about insurance overall. The next couple of weeks I spent a lot of time out in the field shadowing current Navigators at various non-profits all across Chicago to gain experience to prepare myself to help enroll people for Medicaid and other public benefits. The last couple weeks I spent most of my time in certain locations with my colleague performing outreach and enrollment.
