Success Story: Excellus BlueCross BlueShield

Excellus BlueCross BlueShield

Each year, we strive to attract and retain talented and diverse college students through our

Summer College Internship Program.

“We provide interns with practical experience in all areas of our organization and offer

successful participants professional career opportunities following graduation,” stated Nikki

Burroughs, talent outreach coordinator in Human Resources.

Our 10 week Summer College Internship Program offers college students paid internships. Each

year, over 60 interns are hired in various departments from the first week of June to the second

week in August. The departments of Talent Acquisition and Learning and Organization

Development have partnered to provide practical and hands-on training in areas such as, resume

writing, interviewing skills, team building, networking, and the art of communication. Interns

also attend Toastmasters meetings to enhance their public speaking skills.

We are constantly working to improve our program to make it the greatest experience an intern

could have. “The experience I had interning at Excellus BlueCross BlueShield was excellent! I

met many friendly faces and was given meaningful work with which to develop my skills. Being

a student, I feel it's important to get out of the classroom and get a taste of what the work force is

like. Excellus provided me with that opportunity and I am grateful for that” said David Stuttard,

a SUNY IT senior who interned with Excellus in the Provider Relations department in the

summer 2014.
