Calling all college students – keep reading…you might be a fit for our open internships!
If you are self-driven, have a growth mindset, are good at figuring things out, like problem solving, want to learn from me and let me learn from you, please apply for any of our open internships here at Jen E Miller & Associates.
Even immediate project work is available during winter break. As someone said to me just the other day, “I’ve got you.”
I firmly believe one of the best ways to invest in future generations is to create and support student internship positions.
Having been an intern myself (way back in the day!) both on my university’s campus and at a large international company, the experiences I had were both invaluable and irreplaceable.
As my own career evolved, across several industries and positions, I asked about, budgeted for, and hired summer and school-year interns along the way.
Internships can be phenomenal – for both the intern and the employer.
For bigger companies, like those I’ve worked for in the past, internships are full-on programs. A company hires an entire cohort of summer interns. This group of students might participate in scheduled programming, projects, rotations, training and the like, mixed in with the day to day responsibilities of the departments they report to.
With my new firm being in its early days, the immediate internship opportunities are all be part-time or project based. And, those chosen will be helping build a business from the ground up!
- call and email prospective clients
- set up initial meetings for future clients
- support current clients
- learn sales, sales strategy, and sales methodology side-by-side with me
- create and support marketing emails
- create and support company website (built on Word Press)
- support and contribute to weekly blog posts
- learn how marketing and sales connectivity and strategy go hand in hand to build a business
Staff Assistant Internship
- a “jack of all trades” kind of position, the tasks will vary, and will include customer-facing and behind the scenes support work
While I think every college student should strive for at least one internship before graduation, don’t just take my word for it. Check out direct quotes and comments from former interns from my teams over the last seven years. What a joy to hear from them this week!
“As someone who didn’t have any corporate experience, Jen made it comfortable and enjoyable in taking me in, giving me the experience I needed to kick-start my career. I’m now a marketing professional! ”
–Daniela, New York City
“My time spent as an intern with Jen Miller was invaluable to my learning for a multitude of reasons. I learned more than I expected due to the freedom she allowed me. She tasked me with a project and allowed me to figure out how to make it happen. The autonomy she afforded me gave me the opportunity to really own the project and master its complexity from the ground up. This was wonderful for both my technical knowledge as well as my self esteem. I will always be grateful to Jen for giving me this internship opportunity, and ultimately being a huge factor for me landing my first job in the field.”
–Amanda, Orlando, FL
“My internship was an incredible experience. Not only did I learn the basics of business acumen, sales strategy, and the B2B insurance broker space, I was given the opportunity to travel, make connections with business professionals, and complete a personality and work style assessment that has helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses.
Pursuing a degree in public relations, I wasn’t sure if I was the right fit for the job, but when I interviewed with Jen Miller, who was the VP of Producer Development for a large insurance broker at the time, told me it’s actually a good thing to apply for a job even it you aren’t sure you’re the perfect fit for it.
My internship launched my career. I was offered a full-time position with the company, for whom I’ve been working since 2016. I’ll forever be grateful to Jen and for the opportunity to be an intern.”
Stacey, Detroit, MI
