Prudential’s Summer Internship Program

Prudential’s Summer Internship Program


I’ve been working at a family
business since seventh grade, so I haven’t really
had the opportunity to go and for an internship, but I had to change
that this year. You know, I’m a senior finally,
so I had to change that. Prudential really immerses
you in their culture and their work experience, WOMAN: They didn’t give me
little tasks, you know? “Just type up these minutes.” No, I’ve actually gotten to do
all the work that they do and work alongside them. You’re not just sitting
in a cubicle all day crunching numbers
and things like that. There’s a lot of depth
to the company. Prudential is more
than you expect. Prudential is not just
an insurance company, it’s also a financial company. WOMAN:
There’s so many different areas, so many different job functions. They encourage their employees to move around
to try new things. You don’t really see
that in many other places. MAN: What I learned
I can really take back and use in the classroom
and use in my career. The projects that I’m working on
is not related to my major, but it’s something I would
want to do in the future. WOMAN: I mean, here,
I’ve actually been doing a lot of the things I learned
about in my textbooks and my classes. MAN: I’ve gotten to learn about
something called ITIL, which stands for
IT Infrastructure Library. That’s like a training
certification you really can’t get in school. Online courses that
you can take part in. Working on budgeting and variance statement
sort of things. I’m an accounting major
so I really enjoy that, and being able to see how the
products are being implemented and sent over to the CFO
and high-level executives is really valuable experience. MAN: We’ve had a lot
of different opportunities to meet with different
executives and really expand our network. I’m talking to executive
vice presidents. You don’t get that kind
of face time anywhere else. They really care
about the interns, they really care about how they
develop, personal development, professional development. You look very professional. Prudential is a company that
I want to actually invest my personal time into. WOMAN: You can really balance
your work life and family life really well. My friend Raji, she calls
business casual “B-Caz.” The culture of the people
here is very welcoming, very nurturing. Take a video of me
and my best friend. Hi. I guess I sort of have this
vision of corporate America where it’s going to be
scary and intimidating, and everyone was going to sit
in their cubicles and not talk, but everything about Prudential
that I’ve learned has just reinforced
what a nice company it is. Hi. WOMAN: They’re very focused
on community service and like connecting
to the community and that’s really
important to me. It shows that Prudential
is a lot about community and
everything around them. They definitely emphasize
the importance of being a team player. Thank you, guys. There’s a lot of events
organized such as this today, different events just teaching
different things, different skills, And Prudential is
very focused on talent. They’re seeking talent. Top management knows what
they want with this company, and that’s what I like. It’s really helping me get,
like, a real good understanding of what I really want to do
for the rest of my life. Prudential has definitely
helped me grow my career. A very fulfilling
and challenging experience. MAN: Interning here
has been really positive. WOMAN: If you have any interest
in any sort of business, Prudential is most likely
there making an impact as a strong player
in that market, which is really, really cool. (cheering)
