The ERIE Intern Experience: 2020 Virtual Internships

In 2020, Erie Insurance's summer internship program went virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic. What was it like? Our 2020 ERIE interns explain it all. 

ERIE has provided me with responsibilities and challenges to keep me thinking, developing and expanding my knowledge.

I came to ERIE with a limited background in insurance, but the career development and underwriting trainee programs helped me learn and feel more successful in my position. This experience and the relationships I have developed at ERIE will have a great impact on my career.
