Say hello to Veronica Avina! She has been part of the Marketing Content Team this summer!⠀ ⠀ ⠀ “Highlights of this internship are a project where I created a training deck for the content writers, all the information, meetings, and strategies I have been exposed to. The team I am working with are extremely knowledgeable. They have a great eye for content and the creative. It’s truly amazing to see. The conversations that go on in their meetings are things that I am also thinking; which is extremely reassuring to me. This has been an amazing experience. I want to do so much more to help grow KP and be a part of that great experience we’re trying to give our members and stakeholders alike.”⠀ ⠀ Veronica aspires to enhance her professional and strategic skills and become an expert in a professional field of her choosing.⠀ Thanks for sharing, Veronica!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #MeetOurInterns #KPInterns2018 #KaiserPermanente #summerinternship #KPUniversityRelations #InternshipSpotlight

3. Work in a Variety of Settings

“I am assisting in the development of SharePoint sites for Behavior Health, Continuum Care, End State Renal Disease and Telehealth. I also have been facilitating meetings and managing projects” – Estevan, Compliance, Ethics & Integrity Intern.

"Hello, my name is Estevan A. Campos I am a graduate intern with the National Compliance, Ethics & Integrity Office (NCO) on the Revenue Cycle Compliance Services team. I am assisting in the development of the SharePoint sites for Behavior Health, Continuum Care, End Stage Renal Disease and Telehealth. Also, I have been facilitating meetings, managing projects, and executing ad hoc tasks. Throughout my internship I have been meeting various directors who were once interns like myself. It has been motivating to see how much they have grown within Kaiser, by working in different departments and locations. Learning about their growth and career transitions through informational interviews mesmerized me as I hope to follow their footsteps. The possibility of me working for Kaiser Permanente and to grow within the organization is a rare opportunity that I would like to hold on to. On my free time I enjoy working out, wine tasting and spending time with family." . . . #internspotlight #kpuniversityrelations #kpinterns2018 #kaiserpermanente

5. Learn from Experienced Leaders

“My personal favorite impromptu informational meeting was with Donna Uchida because what started as a meet and greet lunch led to helping create ideas for the CEO Comms Brand Strategy. My personality and candor even led to a private meeting with Bernard Tyson – CEO and Chairman at Kaiser.” – Aryonia, Corporate Communications Intern

View this post on Instagram

Today's #InternSpotlight goes to Aryonia White, our Corporate Communications intern this summer! “Throughout this internship I have had opportunities one could have only imagined! By being personable and reaching out to any and every contact I made; I took leadership in informational interviews which led to being invited to confidential private meetings that even surprised my manager! In these two short months, I have had the opportunity to meet many senior communication leaders working on various teams and campaigns. My personal favorite impromptu informational meeting was with Donna Uchida because what started as a meet and greet lunch led to helping create ideas for the CEO Comms Brand Strategy. My personality and candor led to a private meeting with Bernard Tyson – CEO and Chairman at Kaiser Permanente – himself and left me and two other communication interns sitting AT THE TABLE on the 27th floor speaking about our internships and personal goals.” Thank you for sharing, Aryonia!

6. Achieve Your Career Goals

"Walk around, be sociable, meet everyone, talk to folks about their work, do informational interviews, ask your manager to help with other people’s projects in your department, and do good work to show your value.” – Marcos, Learning & Evaluation Intern

View this post on Instagram

Meet Marcos Guevara! Marcos has been promoted to Senior Learning & Evaluation Consultant at Health Plan Institute -- the department he started as an intern at #kaiserpermanente! He tells interns to "Walk around, be sociable, meet everyone, talk to folks about their work, do informational interviews, ask your manager to help with other people’s projects in your department, and do good work to show your value. Ultimately, all those 'networking' tips we hear take a second place spot to just putting your head down and doing good work, so you have to actually have technical skills in your area of work. Focus on building those skills during your internship, show them off and make sure others see your work. Also, find your niche: what area is your department lacking in, but needs, and can you do that? As long as it is something you want to do, make your intentions known, tell your boss’s boss that you want to do that and see what happens. Doesn’t hurt to just respectfully ask." Congratulations on your promotion, Marcos! #formerinternstellall #kpuniversityrelations
