CVS Health Internship Update

By Chloe Skraly, 2017 CVS Health Recruitment Marketing Intern

As a new intern here at CVS Health, I have been given the opportunity to learn a lot as a new young professional in the workplace. The experience so far also made me glad to choose CVS Health as the company to intern for this summer. Everyone here is so friendly and willing to help, and my managers are always here to get me up on my feet when I may feel like I have fallen a little bit and need guidance.

What truly made CVS Health stand out to me with their internship program was the amazing speakers they brought in the first two days of orientation. Having past interns who were offered a full-time position and chose to stay with CVS Health opened up my eyes as a rising University senior to what CVS truly means to the people who work here every day. With only positive things to say about the internship program and the company as a whole, it excited me to be a part of such a great team of people who care so much about this company and our customers. I have learned that CVS Health truly puts their focus on the customer and what they want. The “alumni,” as you could call them, of the CVS Health intern program demonstrated the relevant projects they worked on and how they applied to the company. They felt that they had made a small difference in such a large company, which was great to hear.

The activity the interns did the first day of our orientation was really fun, and we all had a great time innovating and collaborating as undergrads (Masters and Undergrad students were separated for the activity). No one was negative or had a bad thing to say about the activity because we got to work together on ideas that we thought could help benefit CVS Health’s mobile application.

Being a student at Bryant University, I have participated in several activities like this, so I was excited to help out and work in a group as I do at school. What I think all of the interns, including myself, enjoyed a lot was the first night of orientation when we all went bowling together and had dinner. This made it easy to socialize with other young adults in a non-corporate setting to help us all get comfortable with each other and bond as a group.

By the third day of my internship, I was already attending vendor meetings with my team and got to learn a part of what my team does on a day-to-day basis. I have also been given projects that I know will help my team as a whole. I am glad I get to be a part of an organization that cares about my experience here at CVS Health and wants to help me learn about working in marketing and gain the real experience I need as a graduating student.
