Jaylen Jeffreys is definitely not spending her summer internship fetching coffee for her bosses.
Jeffreys started her corporate summer internship at Anthem in early June, where she worked directly with the Empire BlueCross BlueShield team. She has since learned the ins and outs of the company — all from the confines of her home.
Jeffreys works across departments such as PR, operations and marketing. She has also been involved with diversity counseling initiatives and even had the opportunity to pitch comms strategies to upper management.
“Before COVID-19, I was less savvy about technology used in the corporate world,” said Jeffreys.
As a people person and visual learner, Jeffreys describes how she navigated forming relationships with her colleagues and overcoming obstacles during the course of her 10-week internship in this week’s Lockdown Life video.
