Encova Insurance will again host virtual summer interns following the success of their first virtual internship program last year. Twenty-three interns will join Encova this summer; most start on May 10, 2021, with virtual training and onboarding.
About 90% of Encova’s associates have been working from home since March 2020. Last year, despite many companies canceling internship programs amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Encova continued with their program and adapted it so interns could work remotely. They will use lessons learned last year to improve the virtual internship experience this year.
“Our internship program is a win-win for Encova and our interns. They gain real-world experience and knowledge, and we gain their valuable contributions and fresh perspective,” Encova Talent Acquisition Specialist Natalie Payne said.
Nine different departments will welcome an intern, including Information Technology, Accounting, Safety and Loss, Underwriting and Analytics. The interns are primarily college juniors and seniors, representing 13 different universities.
